The best gig going
Ali Velshi, the chief business correspondent for CNN, talked with Alex Weprin of TVNewser about his new show that covers business internationally.
Weprin writes, “‘For a business journalist in 2012, I have about the best gig going,’ Velshi told TVNewser. ‘I will be doing stuff for a global audience every morning, which is their primetime. The show is 7 PM in India, 10 PM in Hong Kong, 11 PM in Tokyo, those audiences are very financially sophisticated.’
“It also means that he can wake up at a more reasonable hour, although he will be spread out more across the many CNN platforms.
”I had my first full night of rest [last Monday], it has been a long time on the mornings,’ he added. ‘I will be doing business like I used to for primetime, reporting and providing commentary and analysis from probably 4PM onward. It is going to be a long and weird schedule, but it sort of fits what I have been doing recently on different platforms.'”
