With CNN’s Atlanta Studio Turning Over to HLN, What Happens to CNN Center Tours?

Jeff Zucker Named New Chief Executive At CNNAs what’s left of CNN’s weekday programming moves from Atlanta to New York City next month, some TVNewser readers are wondering what that means for the CNN Center tours that have been offered for decades.

A CNN spokesperson tells TVNewser the tours will continue, with people still having the chance to peak in on in-progress shows. As CNN vacates Studio 7 in Atlanta the studio will soon be used for HLN programs. CNN will continue to use the Atlanta studio for weekend programs. Also, CNN International, CNN en Español, and Sanjay Gupta, MD all originate in Atlanta.

And for those down in Atlanta looking for a summer activity, the tours happen seven days a week from 9am-5pmET. They last about an hour, with new ones starting every 10 minutes. For an adult, the cost is $15 dollars.

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.

Nancy Grace to Father of Missing Child: ‘Your Son Has Been Found in Your Basement’

GraceA rare breaking news situation last night when Nancy Grace informed a Detroit father his missing son had been found during their live interview.

“Charlie, we are getting reports that your son has been found…in your basement,” Grace told Charlie Bothuell, whose son had been missing for 11 days.

10 seconds later, a stunned father answered: “What? What? I checked my basement, the FBI checked my basement, the Detroit Police checked my basement, my wife checked my basement, I’ve been down there several times.” “How can your son be alive in your basement?” Grace responded.

Grace pressed him on why he reported his son missing, and whether he’s checked his cell phone. “My cell phone’s dead…I left it in the car charging,” he responded.

As Grace’s show confirmed reports, they gave Charlie a phone to call home. This morning, Grace phoned in to “Morning Express.” “That does not look like a guilty man to me.”

Jesse Ventura Goes Off The Grid for New Show

JesseVenturaOraHe’s fought, wrestled, acted and governed. Now Jesse Ventura is back in front of a camera — from Mexico — with a new show on Ora.tv, which is also home to Larry King. Mediabistro managing editor Valerie Berrios caught up with Ventura about how “Off the Grid” differs from his last TV series, “Jesse Ventura’s America” on MSNBC:

“Well, this program differs in the fact that in my short-lived time at MSNBC of about four weeks — even though they paid me huge money for three years — all the topics came from upstairs… the topics come from me. And I don’t answer to anybody.”

Berrios: How did you end up on Ora.tv? Why this platform?
Ventura: My last book tour in the United States was not overly successful because I was pretty much blackballed by NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox News, MSNBC. I have a difficult time now gaining an audience there because they won’t put me on, and so Off the Grid is my way of combating them. They can’t control me now. I can do my own show and people can listen to me and hear what I have to say at their convenience. It’s been a Godsend for me. I thank Larry King from the day we met doing an interview on my book tour when he told me about Ora.tv.

Ventura also talks about his “good friend,” Fox News’ Judge Andrew Napolitano and what he learned recently from watching Nancy Grace.
