The Financial Week That Was

CNN senior business correspondent Ali Velshi is interviewed in the New York Times, and describes the need for selective wording. “We’re very careful not to throw words around like ‘meltdown’ and ‘free fall,’” he said.

CNN’s New APJs

The 10 new bureaus across the country will not only deliver content to CNN, and Headline News but to TV stations across the country. “Our affiliates have asked us for more local items because they’ve gone hyperlocal themselves,” Lane says.

As TVNewser first reported yesterday, the expansion will include a redefinement and possible move for nine CNN staffers. At the same time, CNN will be adding supervisory staff in Los Angeles and Atlanta to monitor the APJs. Says Lane, “there is a significant cost to get this up and running.”
