But - no surprize - CNNI have problems when it comes to airing times and the web. "Airing at 15.00CET and 20.00GMT." Well.... as we know, it's airing at 2100 CET, so both airing times they are mentioning in thebio, are incorrect.
CNN has updated Hala's bio page
CET is supposed to be EDT
Yes, you are right. Meaning that the following would be corrrect: "Airing at 15.00 EDT and 19.00 GMT." But in general, no good idea to mention airing times in bio because of DST changes. If they had used CET instead of GMT, it would be easier.
For me GMT is best b/c we follow our own tune here in Egypt with regard to DST. It didn't start here until May or early June,, then we went off it for Ramadan, when Ramadan ends at the end of the July and then we go back on DST. So sometimes we're on CET and sometimes Istanbul time. Easier to remember GMT - 1 or -2 than which city are we aligned with now.
I understand. You can always "trust" GMT, not changing.... What I ment with "easier", was this: If these web folks, having problems with getting airing times correct, had used CET, they could write in the bio that it's airing at 2100 CET, and it would be correct most of the year. Now they have to update with 1900 GMT and 2000 GMT, as time changes, and I feel sure they will not be able to get it correct. The best would be not to mention airing time in bio at all, and just keep that kind of info in schedules.
