Weird changes today...
Here are the things that I dislike:
- Way too much “World Sport”, especially in the morning CET. Who wants to see half an hour of sports news for breakfast!?
- 9.00 another half-hour of “CNN Today” - Max anchoring solo, 10.00 “World News” from London with Sasha and 12.00 “World News” from London with Max again - Are you kidding me? That doesn't make any sense at all. Where is the consistency?! A couple of years ago all 30-minutes-news-programmes were called “World News” and anchored from CNN Center. That was kind of memorable and brand-ish. I miss somehow the regularity. “World News” is no CNN signature programme any more when it is presented from different locations with changing anchors that are technically responsible for other programmes. Kaushal Patal was already on duty at CNN Center this morning. Why not letting her or Rosemary anchor these shows?!
- Adrian has apparently been demoted. He is a great anchor though... Co-anchoring WBT twice a day for 30 minutes is definitively mental underload for him.
- I hate the solo-anchoring on YWT. Worst decision on CNN ever! YWT used to be a great show after its launch, with a lot of live-reports, interviews, Q&A-segments, analysis... Regrettably the demise of this former flagship-programme is not new... Btw: What happened to Michael and Colleen? They just disappeared a couple of weeks ago.
I'm really looking forward to the new evening line-up. When I reckon all these awful schedule changes, which have already happened today, I'm afraid they'll put Charles Hodson on to solo-anchor the marathon from 20.00 to midnight...
