CNN turns its eye on Africa

CNN is reassessing its news agenda with a week of programmes entitled Eye on Africa, focusing on the developments and the “potential for hope” across the continent.

CNN International Network’s managing director, Chris Cramer, said: “What is important about this week is that it takes the news agenda from Africa away from the perceptions that are so often, by necessity, the main focus of the media’s reporting from the continent.

Instead, we will be highlighting the trends and the positive impact they are having on growth and development in Africa.”

Some of CNN’s most seasoned and experienced journalists will present programmes, and headline guests include UN secretary general, Kofi Annan.
