CNNers Strut Their Snowboarding Slang

Fresh off a gold medal in snowboarding for Team USA, Sage Kotsenburg was treated to some of CNN’s top anchors’ attempts at snowboarding slang this morning on “New Day.”

Playing off Kotsenburg’s affinity for the word “spoice,” CNN played a taped message from Wolf Blitzer, Erin Bunett, Anderson Cooper, and an emphatic Nancy Grace.

“Spoice!,” the HLN host shouted.

Laughing his way through the tape, Sage then got some added color from Cooper.

“When you shredded that nar through that sick pow, it was the most spoice thing I’d ever seen.”

HLN Intends to Become ‘Home for Social Media Generation’

hln logo_304x200HLN’s rebrand as the “new TV home for the social media generation” has begun, network President Albie Hecht announced today.

As our sister-site Lost Remote reports, the network’s social conversion will roll out throughout the year and will feature an all-in social storytelling strategy, curating news from across social platforms while highlighting the most trending and viral stories and the social users behind them.

“While others report on the conversation, HLN will be a part of it,” said @AlbieHechtHLN. “Just as MTV was adopted by a disconnected target audience that was underserved by television, HLN will be the first TV home to embrace the social media generation and champion its interests.”

“RightThisMinute” will be the first new show rolled out, premiering tonight at 10pmET. It will report on the most viral web videos and the back stories behind them before they go viral.

“Morning Express with Robin Meade,” “News Now,” Jane Velez-Mitchell, Nancy Grace, and “Dr. Drew On Call” will also be getting a social makeover.
