Christiane Amanpour To Anchor BBC News Program (For One Night)

The BBC World Service’s “Newshour” will have five guest-presenters (or “anchors,” as we call them stateside) the week of September 26-30.

Among the presenters will be a familiar face to many American viewers: ABC “This Week” anchor Christiane Amanpour. Amanpour will anchor “Newshour” Thursday, September 29 from New York.

The other guest hosts will include the BBC’s Jeremy Paxman, former NBC News and CBS News staffer and current French TV journalist Christine Ockrent, South African Broadcasting Corporation host Redi Tlhabi, and BBC Radio host Evan Davis.
