If Jim has been downgraded to half an hour then that is outrageous Jim is one of the few CNNers who believes all corners of the world are worth air time on CNN.

Mind you if Jim is back to presenting his baby Inside Africa then that is fine.

Great and smart move by CNN to bring Jim, Holmesy and Rosemary out to handle the Mumbai tragedy. The idea of Wolf Blitzer handling the story for CNN international is UNTHINKABLE!!! UTTERLY UNTHINKABLE!!!

Clancy's been great all day

and Rosemary was a pleasant surprise- but as soon as the ex-anchor showed up I left.

(Blitzer is off and Miles O'Brien is doing an excellent job.)

I'm watching him tonight doing the breaking news coverage of Gaza attack and I think that they really should give him a daily program with his own name.

I DO think he has been underused, even with his new 30-minute YWT, focusing on fewer stories and doing more interviews.

If CNNi is really going towards personality driven programs, giving Amanpour, Quest, Anderson and Sweeney their own shows, I think Jim really deserves his as well.

I know. Clancy was also in the news business for a long time before he joined CNN, too. It mentions in his profile that he worked here in Denver for a while, but I never could find anything about it. Does anybody know where his hometown is?

One time Hala was trying to talk basketball, when they mentioned the Nuggets she brought up Jim was from Denver.
He worked at several radio stations there. Here's a audio clip from one. They are doing comedy from the day, sorta like Cheech and Chong.

He also has a website.

I got the feeling it was his based on the photos - I thought he had daughters?

You would probably know that better than I would, but this page below made me think it was maybe one of his sons:

The website is written like it is a web portal for the entire Clancy family...and I can't figure out who's writing it, and for whom or why.

This is from his CNN page, I didn't know he had received such accolades.

From 1982 to 1996, Clancy was a CNN international correspondent in the Beirut, Frankfurt, Rome and London bureaus. During this time, he won with the George Polk Award for his reporting on the genocide in Rwanda, the Alfred I. duPont Award for coverage of the war in Bosnia and an Emmy Award for reporting on the famine and international intervention in Somalia.

Indeed. Jim may not get his own promo trumpeting his achievements, but there is no doubt that he is one of CNN International's biggest assets. He doesn't seem to garner as much discussion here these days, but I'm sure it's not due to a lack of respect.

This from JC's piece to camera during his report on Tuesday:

Jim was at his best today, concerning the comeback of Michael Jackson. He was joking during all his YWT slot about "the big news" of Michael Jackson's comeback amid all other important news around the world right now, like the economic crisis, for instance. But he acknowledged, in a way, that his comeback is a big deal and kept waiting to hear from MJ's press conference. Since the star got trapped in London traffic, Jim told that Hala would personally ask Jackson about his pajamas and some other weird subjects... In fact Jonathan and Colleen did almost the same thing - they were laughing about Jim's question on the pop star and having fun about his stories.

Yes, CNN has been making a lot of fun of him today, his fans wouldn't like it.

What a sweet moment shared between Jim and Zain, at the end of today's edition of YWT. He said "you're one of my favorites". As she quickly replied: "You're mine".
