A tipster writes in, “We are seeing Amanpour everywhere around the TWC [Time Warner Center] getting ready for her show.”
And in fact CNN will announce this morning that Christiane Amanpour‘s new show will debut Monday at 3pmET. While Amanpour continues as ABC News Global Affairs anchor, the veteran CNN anchor and reporter returns Monday with her new 30-minute daily broadcast “Amanpour” on CNN International.
“We are delighted to have Christiane back at CNN,” said Tony Maddox, executive vice president and managing director for CNN International. “Christiane’s sophisticated, incisive journalism is needed now, more than ever to add context and depth to the world’s biggest news and stories,” Maddox said.
“This is an exciting time to have this unique role,” Amanpour said. “I am thrilled to come home to CNN, where I have reported for so many years – and combine this role with the reporting that I will continue for ABC News.” As we reported earlier, Liza McGuirk will EP the show.
