Ivan Watson spends time in the anchor chair

Hong Kong-based senior international correspondent Ivan Watson has made some surprise anchoring appearances of late, breaking from his usual in-depth reporting.

Watson, who relocated to the Hong Kong bureau about a year ago, previously served as the Istanbul-based correspondent, where he was once detained by Turkish police, while reporting.

In addition to anchoring bulletins of CNN Newsroom for CNN International, Watson also anchored the simulcast on CNN Domestic on Saturday.

It is something of a surprise to see Watson in the anchor chair from Hong Kong, especially after the network ended all of HK’s programs except for Kristie Lu Stout’s NewsStream.

As a side note: also based in Hong Kong, the network’s Asia-Pacific editor Andrew Stevens did some anchoring recently as well.
