CNN Becomes the Story

Nguyen_CNN_3.15.jpgA tornado that tore through downtown Atlanta did not spare the CNN Center. This morning the network has been covering the aftermath of the severe weather, and the potential for more today. Anchor Betty Nguyen took viewers on a tour of part of the newsroom “where our writers and our producers sit.” It is now covered with blue tarp. The tornado shattered windows in the newsroom and damaged the roof in the atrium which, until 2003, was the studio for the CNN daytime program, Talk Back Live.

According to a CNN.com report, “water poured through the damaged roof into the building’s atrium. Glass shattered, and parts of the building filled with dust. Windows also shattered in the CNN.com newsroom. Staffers said a computer was missing — apparently sucked through one of the windows. CNN’s library was also damaged.”
