News Around CNN: Thursday Edition

Former CNN correspondent Miles O'Brien will join the Webcast for the next shuttle launch. The five-hour live video broadcast will cover the March 11 launch of Discovery.

TVNewser is reporting that D.L Hughley is ending his show. Insiders tell us CNN's "D.L. Hughley Breaks the News" will end its run at the end of the month, and we're told the decision was Hughleys.

From CNN: "D.L. approached CNN about being permanently based in Los Angeles, where his family lives. To accommodate this, we agreed upon a new role where he will be a contributor for the network based in Los Angeles. We are eager to continue our relationship with D.L., who is a tremendous talent and a valued colleague."

Insiders tell TVNewser it would have become cost-prohibitive to produce the show in Los Angeles. The one-hour, Saturday night news/comedy show had been drawing about 200,000 viewers in the A25-54 demo in recent weeks.It's not known what will happen to the staff of "Hughley" who were made aware of the news in a meeting this afternoon. The show debuted Oct. 25, 2008.

Looks like we will be seeing Dr. Sanjay Gupta on the CNN airwaves for a while longer. Gupta opts out of surgeon general consideration You can read the full story here.

CNN will be increasing its coverage on Africa. With Nkepile Mabuse, Isha Sesay, Robyn Curnow, David McKenzie and Christian Purefoy leading the coverage.

The Daily News had a great article with Campbell Brown where Campbell talks O’Reilly, Olbermann and mold. Interesting combination I know. To read more click here.

A group of Washington State and Toronto youth have started a campaign to get Anderson Cooper to cover the plight of those in Sri Lanka. I could not agree more and I would guess Anderson would love to get out into the field and cover these stories. To read more click here.
That is it for me this week. Another huge thank you to Julie for her terrific finds ~ Sapphire

Wow. When it rains it pours. Now CNN needs
to find new weekend programs. Which is more
important. Weekdays or weekends.

Miles has been getting a lot of time on the air both radio and television lately. He was on Fox Business Channel the other afternoon and on the radio the other day. I love hearing him talk about Space - the final frontier.

I watched DL's show once and while it was a nice change it really didn't belong on CNN. Maybe we'll get some repeats of their great documentaries at that hour, how long has it been since we saw
Homicide in Hollenbeck?

I think Hughley does some decent reports
when he goes out in the field. Maybe he can
do reports for State of the Union. The current
format is not working for me. Why is the Kurtz
program a part of SOU.I am scratching my head
on that one. Something tells me to look for a
big shakeup at CNN. This is just the first.
