Weekly Observations - week ending January 22, 2011
This is our weekly round-up of the tidbits that didn't make it to a post of their own, but are worth noting, along with news items that we've covered that may need a second look.
- We confirmed with CNN recently that London-based anchor/correspondent Sasha Herriman is no longer with CNN International. Herriman joined CNN in February 2007 previously freelancing at the network after coming over from ITV News.
- We also confirmed that former London-based International Security Correspondent Paula Newton is now an International Correspondent based in Canada.
- CNÑ Anchor Daniel Viotto has officially left the network. He anchored his last edition of Encuentro con Daniel Viotto on Friday, November 19th but finished out the remainder of his contract working behind-the-scenes. He tweeted on Friday (translated) "This is it. This is my last day job. [Fourteen years] with CNNE. Strange but good feeling." Viotto started with CNÑ back in 1997 when the network launched and is one of the last of CNN's original anchors.
- CNN.com's Quest Means Business show blog has now been incorporated into the newly-revamped Business 360 blog. The new blog revamp features a design focused around the CNN International Business Team.
- Former CNN Newsroom anchor Tony Harris posed a very interesting question on Twitter today.
