Two upcoming events for Baghdad correspondent Michael Ware. He was announced last night as a guest on the next "Real Time with Bill Maher," airing March 21st (not sure yet whether this will be a satellite interview as his prior appearance on the show was) and he will also be speaking at an event in DC on April 2nd, as part of a special series about the Iraq war being presented by the think-tank Center for American Progress. Full details on the series can be found here.

Miles O'Brien visited the Grand Canyon to report on an experiment currently underway there -- one that environmentalists say doesn't go far enough to undo the damage caused by damming the river 45 years ago:

Where in the World...?

Saturday, Suzanne Malveaux was at a Clinton rally in Dallas; Ali Velshi was still riding the bus in Seguin, Texas; John King was in Cincinnati; Candy Crowley was in Mansfield, Ohio; and Dana Bash was in Sedona, Arizona for the McCain barbeque.

Sunday Ali reported in from both Greune and Junction, Texas; Wolf Blitzer hosted Late Edition from Miami, John King was in Boston; Candy in Cleveland; and Aneesh Raman reported from Tehran.

On Monday, Suzanne was in Dallas, Candy in Columbus, and Ali went to Bandera, Texas. Tuesday, Alino Cho filled in for Kiran Chetry; Suzanne was in Austin, Texas; Wolf was in NYC for the primary coverage; and Dana Bash was at McCain HQ in Dallas.

Wednesday, Dana was at the White House to cover the president's endorsement of McCain; and Campbell Brown hosted Election Center. Thursday Suzanne hosted Election Center; Dana was in Atlanta.

Friday we had John Roberts in DC for American Morning and also hosting Election Center from there; Rick Sanchez (above) was in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; and Soledad O'Brien hosted AC360. 

Also, I forgot to note down which day, but Ali is safely back in NY and back to his usual dapper self. (Not that the cowboy look wasn't impressive, but you know that nobody works the three-piece suit quite like Ali!)

That's a wrap for this week; enjoy your weekend!

Congrats to all the CNN National Headliner Award winners!
Looking forward to seeing Michael Ware on Bill Maher’s show. Wish I could attend Michael’s talk on Iraq in DC – guess I’ll have to settle for the podcast.
Informative environmental piece Miles O’Brien did about the Colorado River. Thanks for the clip Cyn, great post.
