CNN Beefs Up International Coverage

Nov 14, 2007  •  Post A Comment

CNN Worldwide is beefing up its newsgathering capacity with at least four additional correspondents, a regional hub in the United Arab Emirates, a digital production unit based in London, additional personnel for CNN en Español and investments in CNN’s International Newsource and in-house wire operations.
“This is all about owning more content. These new resources will have a huge impact across all of CNN’s networks and platforms,” Tony Maddox, executive VP and managing director of CNN International, said in an announcement Wednesday.
The commitment is described as CNN’s largest expansion of international newsgathering resources in 27 years. “Owning the content we broadcast, publish and make available to affiliates and other platforms is the backbone of this business,” Mr. Maddox said. “This multimillion-dollar investment in staff and resources bolsters our world-class, award-winning journalism as well as gives us the power to move swiftly into developing new business models.”
Additional correspondents are planned in CNN bureaus in Johannesburg, London and Istanbul. Staffing will increase at the Asia-Pacific newsgathering hub in Hong Kong, in Beijing, Jakarta and Pakistan. Additional newsgathering presence also is planned for Afghanistan, Belgium, India, Kenya, Malaysia, Nigeria, the Philippines, Poland and Vietnam. The Tokyo bureau is going to add additional reporting duties in South Korea to its assignments.
The goal of the expansion of the newsgathering and production facilities in the United Arab Emirates is increased programming and reporting, including more business coverage.
CNN en Español will hire an anchor and correspondent and an additional editor working from the network’s Mexico City newsgathering bureau and production center. The CNN en Español editorial team in Atlanta also will grow to handle the increased volume of affiliate and stringer content and the development of new digital services.
