CNN announced the premiere dates for CNN News Central today, the network’s new dayside programming lineup that will bring a more dynamic and illustrative approach to covering news and the developing stories of the day. 

The weekday 9am-12pm ET programming block, anchored by John Berman, Kate Bolduan and Sara Sidner, will debut on Monday, April 3 out of CNN’s New York bureau. The weekday 1pm-4pm ET block, anchored by Brianna Keilar, Boris Sanchez, and Jim Sciutto, will debut on Monday, April 17 out of CNN’s Washington bureau. Both programs will be produced out of Atlanta.
