CNN Newsroom is an American news program on CNN/US.

Broadcasting throughout the week, Newsroom features live and taped news reports, in addition to analysis from experts on the issues being covered, and headlines throughout each hour. The program tends to focus on softer news than their hard news primetime lineup. The program is the standard "brand" for general rolling-news programming for the network, originating from their headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. It debuted in September 2006 replacing CNN Live Today, Live From, CNN Saturday, CNN Saturday Night, CNN Sunday and CNN Sunday Night.[1]


CNN Newsroom airs continuously for seven hours starting from 9:00am ET until 4:00pm ET on weekdays and since the start of September 8, 2008, the program has employed a single-presenter format on such days. On weekends, it airs at various times with late-night editions.[2]

The program shares the same name of an earlier CNN program, debuted in 1989, that was shown commercial-free by teachers in schools.[3][4][5]

On June 18, 2012, CNN introduced, Newsroom International presented by Suzanne Malveaux.[6] This hour-long block of news focuses on news across the globe. The show is based from CNN's World Headquarters in Atlanta. On February 25, 2013, Newsroom International was changed to Around the World.

On August 12, 2013, CNN rebranded the 11:00am hour of CNN Newsroom as well, as Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield. The 60-minute-long show focuses on the most important legal news of the day, and is based in New York.

From August 12, 2013 to February 7, 2014, Newsroom with its reduced airtime aired weekdays from 9:00am to 11:00am anchored by Carol Costello, Wolf Blitzer anchored the 1:00pm-2:00pm hour with Brooke Baldwin having been on air for two hours from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.

Weekend mornings are anchored by Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul, Fredricka Whitfield anchors daytime hours with Poppy Harlow being the primetime weekend anchor for Newsroom.

On February 10, 2014, the 11am hour of CNN Newsroom was renamed @This Hour with Berman and Michaela hosted by John Berman and Michaela Pereira, and the 1pm hour of CNN Newsroom was renamed as Wolf, anchored by Wolf Blitzer. The new show details the latest on politics, breaking news and international news.

In November 2014, Poppy Harlow took over anchoring duties on weekend evening editions of CNN Newsroom. The shift had even covered by rotating anchors following Don Lemon's move to Primetime in early 2014.
