Hmmm, I'm not sure how to feel about that move to Beirut for Arwa, but I guess it will be a change of scenery for her. Thanks for the update, Guy.

It would seem that CNN does have a presence still in Rome. There's a producer, Hada Messia, who posts on the Belief Blog as "CNN's Hada Messia in Rome". I still think they need to have proper representation with a fulltime correspondent.

When did Alessio Vinci leave CNN? Wow, I had completely forgotten he even existed before I read your post Nuggle. :mellow:

Exciting news that Paula is moving to the Seoul bureau.

Award-winning journalist Paula Hancocks is to be based in Seoul for CNN Worldwide, it was announced today by Parisa Khosravi, Senior Vice President of International Newsgathering.

In this new role Hancocks will focus on covering stories from the Korean Peninsula and the surrounding region. The new position allows her to build further on her reputation as a tenacious and talented reporter after more than a decade working at CNN.

That is great news that CNN has a correspondent back in Seoul. I just hope they're not robbing Peter (Jerusalem) to pay Paul (Seoul). I wonder if they will get another fulltime reporter for the Jerusalem bureau, or if Kevin Flower's workload just got a bit busier with fulltime reporting, in addition to bureau chief.

About time they send someone to Seoul since Sohn Jie-Ae left. Congrats to Paula :thumbup:

I was just trying to figure out whether CNN has increased or decreased its number of offices and staff since 2006.

Beirut - no new correspondent since Cal Perry left. They once had two people there permanently with Brent Saddler and Anthony Mills

Jerusalem - They once had two correspondents plus Kevin Flower as bureau chief, now it seems like they are down to Kevin Flower alone when Paula leaves for South Korea

Kabul - no new permanent correspondent there since Attia Abawi left (but they are filling the gap with international correspondents flying in from other positions)

Bangkok - no new permanent correspondent there since Dan Rivers was transfered to London

Rome - no new permanent correspondent since Alecio Vinci left

Mexico City - no new permanent correspondent since Harris Whitback left

Bagdad - no permanent correspondent since Aneesh Raman left, Michael Ware is nowhere to be seen and Arwa Damon was assigned to Jakarta (but they are filling the gap with international correspondents flying in from other positions)

Seoul - since Sohn Ji-Ae left no permanent correspondent, position will probably be filled with Paule Hancocks

On the plus side:

Buenos Aires - Brian Byrns filing reports for CNN from there

Nairobi - office with David McKenzie as a permanent correspondent

Lagos - office with Christian Purefoy as a permanent correspondent

South Africa - permanentely staffed with two correspondents (Nkepile Mabuse and Robyn Curnow)

Berlin - permanentely staffed with two correspondents (Fred Pleitgen and Diana Magnay)

Abu Dhabi/Dubai - Mohammed Jamjoom and Leonie Lakhani

Arwa's the Beirut correspondent now. (Of course that leaves Jakarta with no-one, and indeed with the Bangkok vacancy CNN has no correspondent in South East Asia at all currently)

I hope that CNN+ shutdown doesn't mean that CNN's Madrid bureau is closing as well.

CNN Combining Domestic, International Desks and Bureaus Under Tony Maddox

In a memo to staff this afternoon, CNN/U.S. chief Ken Jautz and CNN International chief Tony Maddox announced a new reporting structure for the domestic and international desks and bureaus as of January 1, 2011.

A spokesperson for CNN says the changes will not result in any layoffs.

I wonder if this will enhance coverage on both networks?

Also, I wonder if the "One CNN Project" is behind the recent moves to share CNNI anchors on CNN US, and even CNNI using CNN's studio 7.

It's about time they get a Rome reporter again. Today there's breaking news of explosions there and they got nobody, they will probably fly someone over from London later but still, Italy is a big important European country where something always happens, especially with Berlusconi. They have reporters in Spain, France, even 2 in Germany so why is Italy left out?

I bet we won't see any more international news coverage on CNNUS. :-(

Hi everyone. I'm just wondering if CNN has more producers spread across the world than it has correspondents. I notice a few times when they go to a CNN producer on the phone from a location, instead of a correspondent. I'm just wondering also if they could get the producers in those countries to report on the news and not just breaking news. That way CNN would have a good pool of reports to choose from each day.

I hope nothing big breaks in India or Pakistan. With Sara in Hong Kong and Reza in Libya, it seems CNN doesn't have any correspondent on the ground in those 2 countries at the moment. I guess there's always Mallika, but she only seems to pop up every now and then.

They could probably get someone from Abu Dhabi into India or Pakistan within a matter of hours if required. Not ideal, but they aren't as 'exposed' as if something big happenned in say Australia or Thailand

And there's always Samson Desta, bureau chief for Islamabad and Kabul who I'm sure could jump-in during any really critical situations.

On another note, I'm really surprised Dan Rivers is still nowhere to be seen while some other bureaus are being decimated because of the situation in Middle East/North Africa.
