Houston posted this in another topic, so I thought I would give this its own home here (since it is originally destined for CNN International).
The article also mentions new programs to launch in 2009. If you want to discuss the CNNI schedule, please continue discussion here.
In her 25 years at CNN, Christiane Amanpour has hopscotched the world, the very model of a foreign correspondent, turning up at seemingly every war, genocide, famine and natural disaster, slipping through previously closed borders and interviewing even the most recalcitrant of foreign leaders.
But there is one thing she has never done: anchored her own daily news show.
That will change next year, when she starts a nightly program on CNN International, which is retooling its lineup. An edited version of Ms. Amanpour's show is expected to be shown on the weekends on CNN's United States channel.
No start date for either version has been set, and the new program does not yet have a title, producer or much of a format, at least not one that executives are ready to talk about. But in in her office in the Time Warner building, with its sweeping view over Columbus Circle and Central Park in Manhattan, Ms. Amanpour said she would continue to travel with the program, "because I'm a field person at heart, in my bones and in my DNA."
We'll leave this topic free for discussion on this new program to be hosted by Christiane Amanpour. I'll change the title as soon as the program name is announced.
