The CNN Ticker: Clinton, Shell, Conventions

  • “Erin Burnett Outfront” anchor Erin Burnett will sit down with former President Bill Clinton for an interview… in Rwanda. Clinton is in the central African nation to visit some projects being funded by his foundation. Burnett and the President will also visit a soy factory. The interview will air Thursday.
  • Speaking of “OutFront,” the program has been featuring reports from Miguel Marquez about Shell’s controversial efforts to drill off the coast of Alaska in recent days. Marquez rejoined CNN in February from ABC News.
  • Attention political nerds: CNN is holding a contest to send six “iReporters” to the RNC and DNC later this year. Users have to submit a photo or video explaining why CNN should choose them to go to the conventions. Winners get an all-expenses paid trip to Tampa or Charlotte, plus access to the CNN Grill and CNN talent.
