TBS International, an international arm of TBS, CNN's parent company within Time Warner, has a new CEO. He is Gerhard Zeiler, until now long-time CEO of RTL, Europe's biggest media company. It's not quite clear what his role will be in terms of running CNN International, the release only says that "Turner Broadcasting System International operates versions of core TBS, Inc. brands including CNN, TNT, Cartoon Network and Turner Classic Movies, as well as country- and region-specific networks and businesses".

Media Guardian reports that as far as CNNI goes he will look after distribution and commercial - which makes sense since editorial/newsgathering is so integrated within CNN Worldwide

CNN International has filed for a broadcasting license in Finland. The Ministry of Transport and Communications has received three applications for programming channels on a new digital television multiplex for terrestrial broadcasts.

The application was filed by Turner Broadcasting System Europe Limited. According to Riikka Pitkänen of the Ministry of Transport and Communications, the application is for CCN's existing output, not for a service especially tailored for a Finnish audience.

CNN has fired "dozens" of people from their documentary unit and are going to buy docos from outside production companies. A bit of surprise since CNN is always talking about its content ownership strategy.

The New York Post has a mixed record on its CNN stories in the past, but I wonder if Jim Walton is feeling a little more nervous these days.

Time Warner brass is succession planning at CNN, but no one’s walking the plank just yet.

Senior management is putting together a short list of potential candidates to run CNN Worldwide to end the ratings death spiral at the flagship news channel, several sources confirm.

The once-mighty network, created in 1980 by Ted Turner, has been recording some of its lowest ratings in 20 years. Last month, CNN ranked 44th in prime time in the advertiser-coveted, 25-to-54-year-old demographic.

That lowly rank places CNN below even Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network and the Bio Channel — attracting just 114,000 viewers in the demographic. A lackluster primary season hasn’t helped the network rustle up its usual presidential election spike.

There's quite a bombshell in that article, if there's any truth to it:

Several news business high-ups say one name being floated internally to come in and revive CNN ratings is Jeff Zucker, the former NBCUniversal boss. Zucker is friendly with both Bewkes and corporate adviser, Gary Ginsberg. The Zucker prospect has rattled some in the executive ranks. No outreach has occurred around that idea.

All I can say is: NO NO NO! If anybody at Time Warner or CNN has any brains left, they would know better than to let Jeff Zucker, the guy who destroyed NBC, to let his grubby hands on the network. If you want outdoor rock concerts on Starting Point and Hollywood movies running in primetime on Friday and Saturday nights, this is your guy. But the harebrained ideas from Zucker are NOT what CNN needs.

I read that story too and thought OMG. Jeff Zucker? Have people at Time Warner been smoking some funny stuff. I hope it's just the NY Post throwing sticks in the air and watching where they land.

It could be that. He was also rumored last week to be going to head the post-bankrupcty Tribune. No matter what he does though, it'll most likely turn into a mess.

Yeah, that story got me as well - Zucker, really?? Since his name is in the news as a potential CEO of Tribune and he is trying to hype the new Katie Couric show, my guess is somebody is just ginning up some publicity for himself.

But I agree, please for the love of all that is holy, do not hire Zucker. Is it possible for CNN to get some fresh faces, new ideas, somebody from print or radio news perhaps?!?! I hope this article is more of an indication that Walton may be out (and he should take a few with him) than it is about Zucker.

No, no, and no. Anyone but Jeff Zucker! I think everyone knows what happened to NBC when Zucker was at the helm. CNN is taking a step (or two or many more) backwards if they even think about having him on board.

To be honest though, in ratings terms, if late-night Film 360 or Starting Point: Lady Gaga Live in Columbus Circle can bring in the eyeballs, then I bet the Time Warner bosses wouldn't mind. :sarcastic:
