Apparently this man, currently editor of Newsweek, is coming to CNN soon to do a weekly international show for both CNN/US and CNNI. Has anyone seen him before on ABC? (or any other network?) - he's on there sometimes apparently. Nice to know CNN/US is taking slightly more interest in world news, even if it is only because of terrorism and Bush's wars. (Thanks to CNN Observations for spotting this news ).
Fareed Zakaria Joins CNN as Host of International News Program
One-of-a-Kind Global Get-Together Will Air in United States, Around World
Fareed Zakaria, editor of Newsweek International and one of the world's leading journalists and commentators on international affairs, has joined CNN as the host of a weekly international news program that will air both on CNN/U.S. and on CNN International around the world, it was announced today by Jon Klein, president of CNN/U.S.
With Americans growing increasingly aware that their most pressing concerns including prevention of terrorism attacks, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the security of jobs and retirement nest eggs, the safety of their families' food and toys and the health of the environment are intertwined with events around the globe, Zakaria will draw upon his vast experience and extensive Rolodex to bring thought leaders and world leaders together to make sense of it all on a global stage.
In addition to anchoring the new weekend program, Zakaria will contribute analysis to other CNN programs across CNN Worldwide. He is based in New York.
