CNNI Prime Time to Feature Amanpour Hour

Amanpour_11.23.jpgVeteran CNN foreign correspondent Christiane Amanpour is getting her own nightly program on CNN International. CNNI EVP Tony Maddox tells the NYTimesElizebeth Jensen the show will launch in the second quarter of 2009 and will join other new CNNI shows.

“Our thinking was we wanted a big, the biggest, name to hub our international prime time, and when it comes to global international superstars that list pretty much begins and ends with Christiane Amanpour.”

An edited version of the Amanpour hour is expected to air on weekends on CNN/U.S. Amanpour tells Jensen she will be taking the show on the road. “[Y]ou can’t just sit back and opine about the news; you have to actually go out there and cover it and report it.”
