CNN takes three AIB awards, Richard Quest named TV Personality of the Year

CNN celebrated three wins at the 2014 Association for International Broadcasting awards, hosted at the LSO St Luke’s in London on Wednesday night.

For the second year running, CNN was awarded the prize for best ‘Live Television Journalism’, this time for its reporting on the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine.

CNN also won in the 'Short News Report’ category for its coverage of a shooting which took place during clashes between Ukrainian security forces and protestors in Kiev’s Independence Square.

The climax of the evening, however, was the naming of Richard Quest as the 'Television Personality of the Year.' Quest, whose dynamic and distinctive style has made him a unique figure in the field of business broadcasting, was at the ceremony to personally receive the award. FULL POST

CNN HOSTS JOURNEY TO FIND THEIR “ROOTS”

ROOTS_LOGO_SMALL

“ROOTS: OUR JOURNEYS HOME” kicks off Sunday, October 12th, with a two-hour primetime special airing Tuesday, October 21st at 9 pm ET

Storytelling is at the core of what CNN does, and in a week-long series beginning Sunday, October 12th, thirteen of the network’s prominent hosts and anchors set out on a journey to find their ROOTS. A project one-year in the making, these journalists embark on an emotional journey across continents as they discover never-before-known details of their family histories.

ROOTS: OUR JOURNEYS HOME will kick-off on Sunday, October 12th at 9 pm ET with a special episode of Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown and will air across the network throughout the week, culminating in a two-hour special on Tuesday, October 21st at 9 pm ET. The following is the broadcast schedule for ROOTS:

SUNDAY 10/12
Anthony Bourdain – (9 pm ET) This investigation into the puzzling history of the Bourdain’s great, great, great, grandfather, Paraguayan émigré Jean Bourdain, serves as a springboard to his first tour of this South American country. In Paraguay, Bourdain explores both jungle and desert land, a rich culture, and savory local dishes that include Bife Koygua, Bori Bori, and Sopa Paraguaya.

MONDAY 10/13
Michaela Pereira – (6am ET on New Day) Michaela Pereira’s adoption journey began when she was very young—just three-months-old in Canada. Although she “hit the jackpot” with her adoptive family, she also knows that much of what you see in front of you—the color of her skin, the curl of her hair—comes from her biological parents. After a brief search years ago led to closed doors, Michaela embarks on her roots journey again—this time not in pursuit of her birth parents, but for the place that her ancestors came from—in St. James Parish, Jamaica.

Anderson Cooper – (8pm ET on AC360) Many people know Anderson Cooper as having come from one of America’s most famous families – the Vanderbilts. But growing up, Anderson was always drawn to the southern roots of his father, Wyatt Cooper. Anderson travels to Mississippi where his father grew up and discovers ties between the poor farming family and the rich Vanderbilts that existed before his parents ever met. FULL POST

State Department: "there’s more that Israel can do to hold themselves to their own standards"

Today on New Day, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told Chris Cuomo that there is no country in the world that has done more to protect and strengthen Israel’s security, but “that does not change the fact that when you have a situation where innocent civilians are killed in Gaza, there’s more that Israel can do to hold themselves to their own standards.”  She went on to say that  “the United States, of all countries, has experienced this in places like Afghanistan.  We’re saying they need to hold themselves to their own standards and do more here in Gaza.”

Tim Howard talks to Chris Cuomo about his historic Wold Cup game

This morning on "New Day," CNN's Chris Cuomo talked to USA goalie Tim Howard about his incredible performance in the World Cup. Howard told Cuomo he felt "in rhythm" while making his record-breaking saves.

“The game has slowed down for me. I’m seeing things much earlier, my reactions have been very quick,” he said.

When asked about what's next for the soccer star, Howard said he plans to go home and relax.

He'll "hang out with the kids, get some more tattoos, you know just be me."

Philip Seymour Hoffman friend speaks in exclusive CNN interview

In an exclusive interview on New Day, the friend who found actor Philip Seymour Hoffman dead of a drug overdose, David Bar Katz, told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that media portrayals have painted an inaccurate picture of the Oscar winner’s death.  He told Cuomo, his friend was not in a destructive death-spiral the night he died. 

After the actor’s death, the National Enquirer published a false interview with Katz and claimed that the two men were lovers.  Katz sued the publication which agreed to a settlement that will be used to for an award to help playwrights.  "I always knew they made stuff up, but I never knew they made up even having an interview with someone that they never had, and then the degree of seeing how everyone picks it up and, as you just said, treats it like news," Katz told Cuomo. "I was really stunned by that." FULL POST

NJ State Senator calls for investigation of Christie administration for possible "criminal acts"

In an interview with CNN’s New Day, NJ State Senator Ray Lesniak said that he will call for a federal investigation into Gov. Chris Christie’s administration over allegations that top Christie appointees orchestrated traffic jams on the country’s busiest bridge last year as part of a political vendetta against the city’s mayor.  Sen. Lesniak said “There's certainly reasonable suspicion that criminal acts have been involved here. Not only abuse of governmental power for political purposes, but we have reckless endangerment of people's lives and possibly criminally negligent homicide.  Those investigations have to be pursued by the authorities of the U.S. attorney’s office.”
