CNN has launched a new primetime evening news show, CNN NewsCenter, anchored out of Hong Kong by long-time CNN anchor Monita Rajpal. Rajpal is a journalist with more than two decades of experience in broadcast news where she anchored multiple primetime news shows and reported from locations across the globe, including Asia, Europe and Latin America.
The show delivers a fast-paced and engaging summary of all the key global headlines as they develop and is the latest addition to CNN’s Hong Kong programming expansion, following the recent debut of CNN Newsroom, Live from Hong Kong, a two hour morning news show anchored by Andrew Stevens and Patricia Wu, as well as the launch of On China, a monthly show hosted by Kristie Lu Stout.
CNN NewsCenter airs in the morning in North and South America, lunchtime in Europe, afternoon in the Middle East and Africa, and evening in the Asia Pacific region. The primetime news programme airs between CNN’s signature shows Amanpour and Piers Morgan Tonight.
