CNN is planning to launch a new weekend program called “The Next List,” focusing on individuals “who are setting trends and making strides in various fields,” according to two people familiar with the show’s concept. Each edition of the program will profile extraordinary individuals from a wide variety of fields, from science and engineering to education and sports.
Former “American Morning” and “Lou Dobbs Tonight” executive producer Jim McGinnis is expected to serve in the same role for the new show. Potential hosts and correspondents were not immediately known.
In addition, no window has been given for a debut date, and it is not yet clear in what time period the show will air on the weekend.
