I'm sure there's an old thread (I didn't look), about the old CNN Today... But I thought it'd be nice to get a fresh thread for a new show. (If a mod disagrees, my apologies - just merge the topics!)

Nice graphics! Let's see how it translates to tv.
NEW DAY, BLACK FRIDAY 2015

BERMAN: Have shoppers become hooked on their mobile devices to fill their needs?
PEREIRA: Guilty as charged!
BERMAN: Their shopping needs, I'm talking about. We'll break it down next.
PEREIRA: (gasps) What is wrong with you?!
BERMAN: I don't know!

Looking fresh and nice. Love the logo and background.

 

Yes, a new thread was needed, there was never a CNN Today from Atlanta anyway.

Nice! But what's with the Fox35 background on Amara's twitter account?

Lol. It's the station she came from. She's never removed it.

Two weeks after launch, the US changes to standard time. With HK 13 hrs ahead of Atlanta, I suppose the airing time will be 5 PM ET, not 6, keeping the HK airing time fixed at 0600 (but one hour earlier, 2300 CET, for many others). Time will show if Amanpour still will be seen at 2300 CET - then Asia Pacific feed will have the first hour of CNN Today exclusively. Suppose the programme also will last for 2,5 hrs from then.

On the CNN Today twitter page, does Amara not have makeup on in the cover pic? Looks... different

Does anyone else find it strange that they are rehearsing so much before the show launch considering not one of the two are exactly new at this? I mean, there is nothing really special about the show that needs to be prepared for, is there?
Even when New day launched they just did three days of rehearsals but these two have been at it all week and the show does not even start next week

I think it's the usual practice, even if it's just another, desk bound, news bulletin they could easily do without any prep, it's still better to have at least some experience before the first show. Plus, with 2 presenters, they have to get used to each other and work out the best chemistry they can, which is not that easy (as we've seen with Newsroom HK).

Also, considering that thee hours aren't used to an actual scheduled show (Even with the fact that the HK show was often from here), the crew may be different that the usual on hand crew so they can train them? New Day probably rehearsed for way longer than 3 days, many shows practice. It's how you work out the kinks

Is it just me or do Jim Clancy and Jonathan Mann keep pushing Twitter during CNN Newsroom [Live from Hong Kong] saying something along the lines of "let's keep the conversation going". A sense of things to come?

One thing that I have learnt from Chris and Kate is that pictures, videos and even "chemistry tests" can often be the best liars.

For those who have Facebook, CNN Today has its own FB page. And for people who uses Instagram, they have their own account, too.

You are right, but I think they will do a good job together. According to Twitter/Michael, CNN Today will have "different look and presentation, same thorough news coverage!"

"different look and presentation" - will it be filmed in black and white with a scary clown in the background making balloon animals?
