Anthony Bourdain on CNN: ‘I’m not gonna barbeque in The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer and (talk) about the election results’

Soon-to-be CNN host Anthony Bourdain talks to The Hollywood Reporter about leaving Travel Channel for the cable news network.

On how CNN wooed him and what he expects to do there:

“They wanted us to just keep doing what we’ve been doing, keep doing what they’ve appreciated us for and … help us move up and on to bigger and better.”

He adds: “I mean, I’m not gonna barbeque in The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer and (talk) about the election results. I’m gonna stay within my area of presumed expertise or experience.”
