CNN Intl makes correspondent, anchor appointments

MUMBAI: CNN International has appointed three new international correspondents in London, Bangkok and Tokyo as well as a new London-based anchor.

The broadcaster has hired multilingual TV anchor Andrea Sanke to join the London network as a news and business anchor. Sanke begins broadcasting in July. For the past four years Andrea has been presenting Deutsche Welle TV's weekly business magazine Made in Germany, as well as The Journal, a half-hour, news programme.

Meanwhile Paula Hancocks, recently deployed to cover the ongoing Israelis/Palestinian conflict, has been promoted from producer/reporter to full-time video correspondent.

Based out of the network's regional headquarters in London, Hancocks joined CNN six years ago as an intern and has worked her way up through various programme production responsibilities in London to her most recent post.

Also taking on the role of video correspondent is Aneesh Raman, who will be based in Bangkok, Thailand. Raman brings with him the experience of digital editing and filming as well as strong editorial skills from his current position as a assignment desk editor based in Atlanta.

Atika Shubert currently a Tokyo-based correspondent for CNN, has been appointed as the full-time correspondent in Japan. From her current base in Jakarta, Indonesia, Shubert has, during the last four years, reported extensively on the increased terrorist activity in the region.

Talking about these new appointments CNN International MD Chris Cramer added, "These new positions reinforce CNN's commitment to hiring and deploying highly energised and talented correspondents and anchors. Their enthusiasm and agility in their new roles will further enhance our global newsgathering and anchor teams."
