CNN Newsroom is an American news program on CNN.

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 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 in CNN's World Headquarters in Atlanta. On February 25, 2013, Newsroom International was changed to Around the World.

Weekend mornings, which formerly aired under the Newsroom banner before being relaunched as weekend editions of New Day in June 2013, are anchored by Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul. Fredricka Whitfield hosts the weekend daytime edition of Newsroom.

On August 12, 2013, CNN rebranded the 11am ET hour of Newsroom as Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield. The 60-minute-long show based in New York focused on the most important legal news of the day, and aired its last episode on September 16, 2016.

From August 12, 2013 to February 7, 2014, Newsroom, with its reduced airtime, aired weekday mornings for two hours anchored by Carol Costello. Wolf Blitzer anchored the 1pm ET hour of the program with Brooke Baldwin until February 2014, when the slot was renamed as Wolf. The new show details the latest on politics, breaking news and international news, and was simulcast on CNN International.

On February 10, 2014, the 11.00 ET hour of CNN Newsroom was renamed @THIS HOUR with Berman and Michaela hosted by John Berman and Michaela Pereira.

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

In February 2017, Carol Costello left CNN for HLN, and was succeeded by John Berman and Poppy Harlow. Ana Cabrera took over Harlow's weekend evening slot.

In May 2018, John Berman left the 9.00 ET show to become the new co-anchor of New Day, the flagship morning program for CNN.

In September 2018 Jim Sciutto became the new co-anchor in CNN Newsroom on the 9.00 ET show with Poppy Harlow.

In 2010, CNN Newsroom was nominated for a GLAAD Media Award for "Outstanding TV Journalism - Newsmagazine" for the episode "Gay Killings in Iraq" during the 21st GLAAD Media Awards. Also that year, it was nominated for "Outstanding TV Journalism Segment" for the segment "Lt. Col. Victor Fehrenbach 'I Was Utterly Devastated'".[7]


In June 2015, a London gay pride parade included an ISIL parody flag, replacing the Arabic letters with dildos and butt plugs. Malveaux described the presence of an ISIS flag at a gay pride parade as "unnerving" before a seven-minute live cross to a CNN "terrorism expert" in London.[8][9][10]
