Errol Barnett Named New Host Of CNN International's Inside Africa

Errol Barnett has been named as the new host of CNN International's Inside Africa. Barnett replaces Isha Sesay. The announcement was made on the Inside Africa facebook page late Tuesday.

"We have a very special announcement about Inside Africa. We are pleased to welcome CNN’s Errol Barnett, who has moved to the continent to become the new host of Inside Africa.

Errol will be embarking on a journey of discovery around Africa, and we invite you to take this journey with him. This week, we start in Zambia – where you will experience everything from the historical town of Livingstone to a bungee jump from the bridge near Victoria Falls.

After years of incredible work on the show, Isha Sesay will be moving on to focus on BackStory and her work with AC360, among her many other projects. Thanks again to Isha for everything, and welcome Errol to the IA Team!"

Barnett's appointment to hosting duties means the program will now be hosted full time from the African continent itself. It was previously taped at CNN International's headquarters in Atlanta. On Twitter, Barnett commented that he was "thrilled to be joining the [Inside Africa] team".
