CNN boosts live programming for Asia Pacific
CNN has expanded its live programming in the Asia Pacific region with the launch of a new primetime morning news show, a new primetime evening news show, and the appointment of two new full-time anchors.
The announcement comes just weeks after CNN launched On China, the network’s first ever regular series focused on the country, hosted by Hong Kong-based Kristie Lu Stout.
Mike McCarthy, Senior Vice President, CNN International, said, “The Asia Pacific region is dynamic, compelling and delivers stories that shape the news day for the rest of the world. We are delighted to further increase coverage here from our headquarters in Hong Kong, through a new programming line up that reinforces our commitment to remaining the number one international news network in Asia, unmatched in our award-winning and relevant coverage.”
The first programme of the weekday morning show, CNN Newsroom, Live from Hong Kong, went to air on Monday November 19 and covered top stories from Asia Pacific and across the world, along with headlines across business, sport, weather, technology and entertainment.
