I think it's pretty safe to assume from the photo that Hala will be "sitting" at the International Desk.

Haha! Spot on pun, houston. Thanks :D
Do we know when international desk is coming on? Its weird here in australia, foxtel programme schedule has shown 'international desk' during YWT. Is it meant to be part of YWT? or totally different show? :?: Sorry, i'm hopeless :oops:

Good work Houston

To have any credibility

It Had To Be Hala

yes some are resentful of Hala (even some of her female colleagues) but it was always a slam dunk to offer the show to Hala, to do otherwise would have been a missed free throw

That's great. So any doubts about Hala going to Abu Dhabi center are gone. I wonder what will Jim do??

This is a new show starting next week at 18.00CET. Judging from Houston found, Hala will be the anchor.

I think it's pretty safe to assume from the photo that Hala will be "sitting" at the International Desk.

I wonder will this show use the new set. The name of it and the description sounds like it will air from the newsroom. :idea: :idea:

^^^

My guess is that he and Colleen will become the permanent presenters of YWT.

I'm excited for ID. I must confess that my love of Hala isn't nearly to the level of most of yours, though this is due to the fact that I always have class during YWT, and even when I don't, I'm usually sleeping in. However, ID is on at a reasonable time here, so hopefully I'll be able to get doses of Hala more frequently.

History has told us that we can take The Dude's submission to the bank and we thank him for it.

The Dude is saying Hala Basha Gorani will be standing up on the ID, isn't he?

I donít get all the mystery over who will host the show. Actually, I donít get either, how a new program that is supposed to start next week isnít being promoted by now. :roll:

Maybe it will be Jim. This 30 minutes slot has been looking like an experiment to me in the first place. They have those special backgrounds they only use there. But it's more of a debate show and doesn't look like up to minute news updates that Inetnat. Desk should provide.

I'm excited. This show sounds really good. I just don't understand why CNN has been so quiet promoting this and QMB. A full hour of World Business Today will also be nice (at least the later edition will be an hour.)

What is meant with the "28-Jan-2009, 1:00:00 AM" on that website? At what time will International Desk air in CET?

CNN.com has now updated this week's schedule with 90 min of WNA and 60 min of WBT, but no International Desk. Perhaps it's been put on hold until next week?
