CNN International to broadcast the first ever live TV programme from London’s Shard

London 25 June 2014: CNN International is to broadcast what will be the first ever live TV programme from The Shard – the tallest building in the European Union – in a special edition of The World Right Now with Hala Gorani this Thursday.

Gorani, who recently moved to CNN’s London bureau from its Atlanta headquarters to anchor a new show for the network, will present an hour long news programme, covering the key stories of the day across news, business and sport.

“The Shard has become an iconic symbol of this global city in a very short space of time,” Gorani said. “It’s the perfect place to anchor an international news programme, and you couldn’t wish for a more stunning backdrop of the London skyline.” FULL POST

MIKE ROWE BRINGS ORIGINAL SERIES TO CNN

Series To Launch this Fall 

 For more than a decade, Mike Rowe has been nationally known as the “dirtiest man on TV,” as host and the executive producer of the Discovery Channel’s Dirty Jobs (2005-2012).  He traveled to all 50 states and completed 300 different jobs, transforming cable television into a landscape of swamps, sewers, ice roads, coal mines, and oil derricks.  He initiated a hands–on way to pay tribute to a nation of unsung heroes, conclusively demonstrating that fun and hard work are two sides of the same coin and confirmed the value of delayed gratification, sacrifice, hard work, good humor and optimism.  He is now on a brand new mission and he will bringthat mission to CNN beginning this fall.
