‘CNN Newsroom’ Moves to New York, But Atlanta’s Still in the Picture

Today is Carol Costello and Brooke Baldwin‘s first day anchoring their respective hours of “CNN Newsroom” from New York — but the shows may not look that different. As an eagle-eyed CNN viewer points out, while Costello may be in NYC, the shot in the big monitor behind her today was of Studio 7 in Atlanta.

A CNN spokesperson tells us that this shot is part of the standard “Newsroom” graphics package, which has an update in the works. Baldwin’s first NYC edition of “Newsroom” (from 2-4pmET) will also have its usual graphics look today.

Suspect Killed in NYC Shootout Was Featured on John Walsh’s CNN Show

MozdirWalshA wild shootout in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village this afternoon left a child sex assault suspect dead and two law enforcement officers injured. The man authorities were looking to take into custody was Charles Mozdir. He was featured on John Walsh‘s new CNN show “The Hunt” just last Sunday.

“It’s a very, very shocking ending,” Walsh said to CNN’s Brooke Baldwin by phone this afternoon, “But it shows how much the public cares and how much they can help.”

Mozdir was wanted in California for abusing a 7-year-old boy. “He was on the run for almost two years,” Walsh says. “And this family was destroyed, terrified that he would come back and hurt them. They had the courage to come forward and file charges against him and now they don’t have to worry if this guy is coming back.”

Walsh explained that following the original airing of “The Hunt” on Sunday, July 20, tips started to come in that Mozdir was in New York City.

Freelance Journalist’s Reporting on Downed Plane Draws Kudos From Anderson Cooper

When breaking news situations like the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 happen, networks often depend on eyewitnesses and citizen journalists for initial coverage.

Over the last 24 hours, one of those journalists has been Noah Sneider. Sneider is an American freelance journalist who witnessed the downing of the plane in Ukraine yesterday from a small village near the crash site. He’s described the scene via phone for CNN several times since news broke yesterday morning, calling in and reporting during hours anchored by Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon, Jake Tapper, and Brooke Baldwin.

And one of those anchors took notice, praising Sneider’s reporting this afternoon.

“You wander through these fields and you pretty much have to watch every step because if you don’t you can step on a person’s organs,” Sneider recounted last night while being interviewed by Don Lemon. “It’s like it was raining body parts.”

HLN Taking Over CNN’s Atlanta Studio

Jeff Zucker Named New Chief Executive At CNNAs Carol Costello and Brooke Baldwin move from Atlanta to New York in August, CNN Atlanta’s Studio 7 will turn over to HLN.

CNN and HLN confirm the switch to TVNewser, which was first reported by FTLive, adding it hasn’t yet been decided which HLN shows will air in that studio. Costello and Baldwin’s production staffs will remain in their Atlanta workspace. Nancy Grace, “HLN Now,” and Morning and Weekend Express currently originate from Atlanta.

Studio 7 served as the location for much of CNN’s 2012 election coverage, including primary nights. The studio utilized a slew of technologies, including John King‘s beloved “Magic Wall.”

How long HLN live programs will remain in studio 7 is up in the air. Earlier this month, reports surfaced that Time Warner was in talks to acquire almost half of Vice Media, and transform HLN into Vice.

Programming, Staffing Changes at CNN International

cnn international logoCNN International is making significant programming changes to its lineup, adding new primetime shows and expanding live programming. With the changes, the network is eliminating some jobs in Hong Kong and adding positions in other bureaus.

Among the major changes: the launch of “The World Right Now with Hala Gorani” and “The Business View with Nina dos Santos,” a new time slot and show format for “Connect the World with Becky Anderson,” and an expansion of live news programming for viewers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (more details are in CNN’s announcement, after the jump). CNN senior international correspondent Ivan Watson will also be relocating to Hong Kong.

TVNewser hears that about 20 off-air editorial positions have been cut in Hong Kong. A CNNI spokesperson tells us about two dozen positions will be added across the London, Atlanta and Hong Kong bureaus, and those jobs will be posted as early as today.

In a note to staffers announcing the changes, CNNI EVP and managing editor Tony Maddox said the network is committed to keeping the impact on Hong Kong roles “to a minimum.” 

The majority of jobs will be added in Atlanta, where the new CNNI programming will be produced. As we reported yesterday, CNN’s domestic daytime programming will be broadcast entirely from New York and DC beginning in August as Brooke Baldwin and Carol Costello move to NYC.

CNN’s Brooke Baldwin, Carol Costello Move to NYC

costello baldwinTwo CNN anchors are making the move from Atlanta to New York this summer. Beginning in August, Brooke Baldwin and Carol Costello will anchor their respective hours of “CNN Newsroom” from NYC. Costello anchors “Newsroom” from 9-11amET and Baldwin helms the 2-4pmET hours.

“Carol Costello and Brooke Baldwin will move to New York to anchor their weekday CNN Newsroom shows, beginning in August. There will be no other changes to those shows’ production team,” a CNN spokesperson told TVNewser. “Atlanta is, and always will be, a critical part of CNN Worldwide’s operations. It remains home to much of our programming and content, including the production for many of our shows, CNN’s worldwide newsgathering operations, CNN Digital, CNN International, CNN en Espanol, HLN and Newsource.”

Other CNN shows that are anchored from New York but produced in Atlanta: “CNN Newsroom” with Don Lemon” and “Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield. Wolf Blizter‘s 1pmET “Wolf” is produced in Atlanta but anchored in DC. A CNN source tells us having the anchors in New York gives them more on-set guest opportunities.

The shift means all of CNN’s weekday programs will be anchored from New York or DC. When Jeff Zucker took over as CNN Worldwide president, he said: ““Atlanta will continue to be the home for CNN and continue to be the backbone of CNN.”
