CNN.com Live‘s Melissa Long anchors the Web-only show from a studio adjacent to the CNN.com newsroom.
No trip to Atlanta would be complete without a stop at CNN. So this TVNewser, taking a couple days away from the blog, dropped in at the CNN Center for the grand tour. We were taken through the newsroom/studios for CNN en Espanol and the newsroom and control room of CNN International, where World Sport was airing.
In the CNN domestic newsroom/studio Tony Harris was in the middle of anchoring his two hour show. We spotted Richard Quest, in Atlanta anchoring segments related to the financial crisis; anchor Kyra Phillips was talking with her producers about an upcoming segment on her show; Rick Sanchez was taking a break from Twittering and grabbing some lunch before his 3pmET hour; and we met CNN’s director of programming, Scott Matthews, now 10 months into his new job.
We stopped in to the live control room and finally, down several floors to the CNN.com newsroom, which is much larger than we expected it to be. And insiders tell us they are always looking for new ways to expand so it could soon grow even larger.
Many more pictures after the jump…
