First time seeing her anchor today. She's on World News Asia and is fantastic. Sorry to the Anna fans, but there's no comparison and I think Pauline should be made permanent host of the last two hours of CNN Today Hong Kong.

Pauline is confident and has a natural style of presenting. I'm glad I actually saw her today.

I think they should go back to co-anchoring in HK.

I know they have no male anchors but why not let 2 women co-anchor,-I at least wouldn't mind.Why has it always to be a man & a woman?

They should do that format since Andrew is the only guy there.

What will it be...

Kristie and Anna
Anjali and Pauline
Manisha and Kristie
Anna and Anjali
Pauline and Manisha
Andrew and any one of them

I could go on and on, but I thought Pauline did well.

Tonight was the first time I could catch World News Asia this week. I like Pauline a lot... but I prefer Anjali on World News Asia. That's Anjali's show as far as I'm concerned. I just hope her absence is due to filming for Talk Asia.

Nonetheless, it's in good hands if Pauline is just keep the seat warm.

She's not bad. But not great.

I like all the HK anchors over her and would rather see Manisha fill in for Anjali. I don't have anything against her, I just think she is a bit too domestic for me. Not the worst though, as Morpy said just somone to keep the seat warm, noting special or great. Good but not great.

To the comment above, that they would rather see Pauline to the second hour of CNN Today to Anna- I disagree. I think Anna has a great on air presense and has really proved herself.

These are just my views anyway.

"Prior to joining CNN, she worked as ... a morning news anchor for the NBC station in Houston, Texas."

And they haven't been the same since she left.

Looks like Pauline is in for Anna on CNN Today as Anna is visiting her family in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, or wherever in Australia she's from.

I'm all over the place this afternoon. I'm supposed to be working on a report, but I managed to take a quick cap while I got up to make a coffee.

I didn't mean to take one of Pauline being so serious, but I think she looks pretty. :oops:

She was serious with the news but had that warm and fuzzy that's expected at 5 or 6 in the morning.
Pleasant - nice laugh as I remember - it was five six years ago?

Bland is the Mini-Me of Boring

and quite frankly that's how I find Pauline to be, probably prefer her to Anna though.

^^ That's extremely unfair. Dunno what people are supposed to do half the time. If they're not talking about nail polish, fashion or what food they like, what they're gonna do at their summer home or some shit like that they're considered "boring". Whatever.

Unfair, maybe, extremely unfair no way! you clearly understand bland to be a wholly negative word but if you look it up you might see also see

non irritating
pleasantly agreeable

Anyway this could be a good opportunity for my enemies on the forum to come out and agree with you.

Give her a chance, will you? She might not have LuStout's 'dentistry' backgrounds ;-) ; or Rao's comfy personality, but i think she has been one of the few good newcomers, and has a very impressive background. So, lets just see...

I like Pauline, absolutely, but boring world, boring discussion forum if everyone followed the same people so closely.

I wouldn't consider myself an enemy, but I disagree - and people would already know that from my previous posts about Pauline.

Pauline is not my favourite Hong Kong anchor (yet) but she's def. not my least favourite anchor from that city! Pauline falls a couple of clicks above the middle in terms of my likeability scale. :D

Add Guillermo in Pauline's corner. He seems very pleased that she can pronounce his name correctly.

It seems that the level of "fun" interaction seems to be more apparent today. Guillermo and Pauline could make a powerful pair.
