CNN has added another show to Richard Quest’s plate (which is already quite full with hosting the daily business shows on CNN International, Quest Express and Quest Means Business) — World of Wonder.
“Quest’s World of Wonder can be summed up in one sentence: We’re going to interesting places to meet fascinating people,” says host, Richard Quest.
“We’re not tourists, we’re travelers. It’s a show about meeting the people who reveal the heart of the city and help you understand what makes the place tick, leading you to that ‘wow’ moment when you realize you belong.”
Each month Quest will travel to a different destination to dig deep into its DNA, exploring what drives a city and the people who live in it. Viewers will meet larger than life characters who explain how the city’s past has created a unique fabric that is still evolving today. But this isn’t a show about tourism, food or culture – it’s about finding the essence of a place.
“People are fascinated by the spirit of a city – something built up over millennia, centuries or decades that defines what the place stands for and offers its residents and visitors,” says Ellana Lee, Senior Vice President, CNN International. “No one is better at finding and telling those stories than Richard Quest – a true internationalist with vast experience in travelling the world and reporting on it. Through this new show, CNN viewers will experience a world of wonder that will inform and inspire in equal measure.”
