Doesn't Michael Holmes have good chemistry with everyone?

Any chemistry between anchors is so methodically created by various teams who know what is best for us.

This Facebook post says CNN Today will premiere in November instead of the promised 20 October.

Interesting. As late as Oct 14 Michael retweeted from @NowonCNNi; "...starts Monday". The change might be related to the fact that Europe changes to standard time at Oct 26 and US changes to standard time at Nov 2. 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. Perhaps it makes it easier for them if they wait until these time changes are over.

I messaged Michael about the confirmed date of the launch of CNN Today, his reply:

 

...We've been told two week delay - for an exciting reason. Hopefully that will be all! Cheers.

On one hand at least it means that the the launch will come once all major countries switch back to "standard" time which creates less confusion.  But on the other hand that means the show will be upstaged by the US general election in the middle of its launch week.

This idea popped up in my head too. With staff reductions at HLN, maybe CNNI will get Studio 7 after all! They would need those 2 weeks for rehearsals...that's all just speculation of course.

Or they may be reconsidering whether to present it from HK.

Just typical of CNN to do this - though I did wonder with all the news going on in the world if their resources were to far stretched after seeing the delay post and with Amara hosting ID the last few days. Stupid though to promote a launch date and then delay it

No way it's going back to HK.

 

Exciting reason could mean the big new, old domestic, studio. I sure hope so.

Exciting may also mean that entire studio will be covered with monitors showing fake screens :mrgreen:

Makes you wonder because a new studio would take months of planning so they would have known before, unless they've bought it forward. Unless like you say they're moving studios, but can't see it.

They would never have a new studio so soon.

Maybe they will move. I don't get to see domestic that much but when I have seen the other studio, it too seemed under utilised.

And... I messaged Michael again asking what the delay is about - if it's related on the set, graphics or schedule - he replied...

 

Will let you know when I can, but it's a good thing, not bad. It's set related good news that will take a couple of weeks to get in place
