The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer is an afternoon, early evening newscast on CNN and CNN International hosted by Wolf Blitzer that first aired on August 8, 2005.

The broadcast currently airs weekdays live from 5:00PM to 6:30PM ET from Washington D.C.

The show begins with the following open: "Happening Now ..... We want to welcome our viewers in the United States and around the world. I'm Wolf Blitzer, and You're in the Situation Room", which includes highlights of what the show will discuss. Current events, breaking news, and political headlines all with discussions happen during the lively program.

While the show has its own correspondents such as Brian Todd and Mary Snow, the show also makes use of top CNN journalists from across the network and political analysts such as Gloria Borger, John King, and Candy Crowley.

The show features multiple segments such as Top Stories that showcases headlines of the day as well as Hot Shots which are pictures coming in from around the world.

Normally at the end of the program, a report by Jeanne Moos is shown that talks about unusual, off-beat soft news stories that focus on subjects related to popular culture. The report makes use of street style interviews, shots of tabloid magazine headlines, and clips garnered from videos on YouTube.[1]

By 2012, CNN's Washington D.C. studios were completely redesigned giving The Situation Room a newly updated look.[2]

Former Situation Room contributors include Lisa Sylvester, Jack Cafferty who presented The Cafferty File, and Kate Bolduan who briefly co-hosted part of the program with Wolf Blitzer.
