PBS has tapped CNN’s chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour to fill the gap left by Charlie Rose in their programming line up on an interim basis.
The main PBS station in New York, WNET, will begin airing Amanpour on Monday night. It will be made available to other stations a week from now, reports CNNMoney.
CNN International will continue producing Amanpour. and it will continue to mainly originate out of the network’s London hub.
“Featuring conversations with global leaders and decision makers on the issues affecting the world today, ‘Amanpour on PBS’ adds to the long tradition of public affairs programming that has been a hallmark of public media for decades,” PBS CEO Paula Kerger said in a statement.
