MUMBAI: Rolando Santos is joining CNN International as senior VP, international relations. The announcement was made by CNN international MD Chris Cramer. In this role, Santos will play an integral part in the development of future CNN services around the world while working closely with CNN?s International affiliates and joint venture partnerships.

Santos, currently executive vice president and general manager of Headline News, takes up his new role with CNN in mid-September. Cramer says, "Rolando has unrivaled experience in the creation of numerous CNN services, including CNN en Espa?ol in 1997, CNN + in Spain and CNN Turk in 1999," Cramer said. "As we continue to build upon CNN?s international heritage and global influence, he is the perfect choice to work alongside our worldwide partners, affiliates and colleagues."

As a member of CNN International?s senior management group, Santos will work closely with Turner Broadcasting?s global business development teams identifying potential new platforms and editorial partnerships. He will also assume editorial liaison with some of CNN?s sister channels, CNN-IBN in India and CNN Turk in Turkey and will oversee CNN?s International Professional Program, which brings together journalists from around the world for hands-on editorial training in Atlanta

He says, "I have enjoyed working in the international arena and helping launch so many successful CNN services around the world and, more recently, building Headline News into the dynamic news channel that it has become. This is the perfect opportunity to return and help shape CNN?s international growth and future."

Since 2002 Santos has served as executive VP and GM of Headline News, responsible for its development and overall operations. Prior to that he was president of CNN en Espa?ol, CNN?s 24-hour Spanish-language news network, where he oversaw all daily operations and editorial content of CNN en Espa?ol and CNN en Espa?ol Radio. He was also played a significant role in the development and launch of new international news networks such as CNN+ and CNN Turk.

Additionally, he oversaw the Spanish-language newsgathering operations, including a fully bilingual staff in Atlanta, a worldwide network of Spanish-speaking correspondents and eight full-service bureaus in Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Washington, D.C., Buenos Aires, Jerusalem, London and Mexico City.
