CNN is adding to its international schedule with a new nightly show presented from its EMEA headquarters in London.
From today, Emmy Award-winning journalist Isa Soares will anchor the self-titled Isa Soares Tonight at 19.00 BST. Portuguese-born Isa Soares has reported from Latin America and Southern Europe, and most recently she has played a key role in CNN’s on-the-ground coverage of the war in Ukraine.
“For more than 20 years I’ve had the privilege of reporting history and shining a light on humanity, covering the pain and sacrifice that comes with some of the most heart-wrenching stories of our times,” Soares said. “From Venezuela to Colombia and Spain to Ukraine, I’ve travelled the world to give a voice to the voiceless, driven partly by my personal links across the continents. With Isa Soares Tonight I will continue holding those in power to account and help shape an honest, smart and in-depth news program at a time of great uncertainty and division.”
CNN is also adding to its European breakfast programming with the launch of CNN Newsroom with Max Foster, which will run at 9.00 BST daily.
“With the launch of Isa Soares Tonight and move of CNN Newsroom with Max Foster, CNN International is putting our European audience at the centre of our refreshed evening and morning lineups,” said Meara Erdozain, senior vice president of programming for CNN International. “Isa and Max are both exceptional, highly experienced journalists with unique perspectives on the stories that resonate with audiences in Europe and beyond. Their warm, engaging style and empathetic storytelling will help lead viewers through the key news of the day.”
The new shows are the first major changes to CNN International since the news channel came under the wing of Warner Bros. Discovery.
