^^^

Is there any chance you may know (or am able to tell us) the name of this new show? My schedules keep telling me that it's still called Business International.

Business. He's going to be the new lead business anchor. Becky and Fionnuala are getting their own shows as well in addition to Christiane's new show.

I checked and have to agree with another post above as it says the same programmes through March 2009.

So what about this new show?? Is it starting today, the schedule is now slowly coming back to normal.

Is it a daily or a weekly show???

Of course. I forgot about that. Haha. TheDude said that it would be starting this week, but no schedules have showed anything new. I was thinking that he might be starting to anchor BI this week, but he wasn't on today, was he?

Sounds like it will be quite the show. Sure, we've heard it's a business show, but what makes it different is 1) it is hosted by Questy; 2) Questy is moving all around the set (apparently); and 3) it has word of the day (today's in rehearsal was circumlocution).

This should be exciting! Unfortunately, I probably won't be able to watch it often because I have class during European primetime.

New title:

Quest Means Business

It replaces Hodson's BI next week. I don't see anything else different in this schedule.

So it's definitely over for Business Intertantional on CNN. :-( It was a trademark show and I loved the music. :-(

What will Charles do??? WBT???

I think I will miss the current CNNi music package when the new design is implemented.

Richard Quest is thus defenitly back then.

I'll still be around...don't worry. :D

According to the Davos promo, Hodson is the new anchor of WBT. I wonder if he'll be on the morning edition, too, or just the now-expanded hour-long edition in the afternoon.

I will agree with you that Business International is a better name than World Business Today. I wish that they would get rid of that edition of World Sport at 0730 GMT and have CNN Today run straight from 5-8 with WBT right after for a full hour like the old days.

Quest announced the show's name himself on his Twitter page. It seems like he slipped it when he wasn't supposed to.

I think I will miss the current CNNi music package when the new design is implemented.


I agree! I hope the new music is just as good. I'll definitely miss the CNN Today opening music and background theme.

1) CNN Newsroom, The Situation Room, The Music Room, The Screening Room...

2) CNN means Politics, CNN means Money, India Means Business, Quest Means Business...

Are all the words over?

One of the names I heard being floated around was "Business Quest". If that was a name being considered, I'd like to have a quiet word with the person who thought "Quest Means Business" would be a better alternative.
