The CNN Ticker: Specials, Zucker, Davos

  • CNN has a pair of specials tonight. From 6:30-7:30 A.J. Hammer and Nischelle Turner will host a red carpet pre-show for the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards, which will air on sister network TNT at 8 PM. At 10 PM Don Lemon will host a one-hour special focusing on Manti Te’o‘s interview with Katie Couric.

  • Marketwatch’s Jon Friedman writes about new CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker: “The new boss has to do what the old bosses couldn’t quite do at CNN: make a mundane news day seem tinged with enough drama, pathos, emotional content and everything else that inexorably draws in viewers and keeps them coming back.”

  • Ali Velshi had a confrontational one on one with House GOP leader Eric Cantor in Davos, Switzerland. The interview airs on “Your Money” this weekend.
