CNN to boost fare with rolling evening news wheel

MUMBAI: CNN will unveil its latest programming innovation next week in the form of a rolling evening news wheel Your World Today.

The fast-paced weekdays news show will be presented by two highly experienced anchor teams. The first edition features Zain Verjee anchoring alongside veteran American war correspondent Jim Clancy. Verjee also anchors Q&A on the channel.

The second edition will be presented by British anchor Daljit Dhaliwal, of PBS fame, paired with Australian journalist Michael Holmes, recently acclaimed for his reporting in Ramallah, West Bank. Showcasing their global knowledge and quick-wit, the two duos will each host a two-hour block of programming in a redesigned newsroom, beginning 21 October at 8:30 pm IST. It will air Monday - Friday.

Your World Today will showcase the depth and breadth of CNN reporting worldwide. Correspondents deployed in CNN's 42 bureaus, and across its medical, entertainment, lifestyle and sports beats, will deliver up-to-the-minute reports throughout the four-hour block. This newscast goes beyond the headlines and delves into the "how" and "why" of the news. The programme's anchors put the day's top stories into context, explaining the relevance and impact world news has on viewers' lives.

Hard-hitting and insightful interviews with top newsmakers will also form a key component of the newscast, specially highlighted in a full half-hour Q&A' segment hosted by Verjee and Clancy.

Your World Today is also to be complemented by a web page that is updated daily, inviting viewers to interact with the anchors and discuss the daily issues that are most important to them, namely in the "Question & Answer" and "Your Say" forums. The site can be found at www.cnn/
