Secret To Success

What's the secret to success at CNN? Other than being on good terms with Jon Klein...well, it could quite possibly be working on ABC News' World News Now broadcast. Never heard of it? Well, you must have never found yourself channel flipping in the middle of the night. ABC's World News Now is their overnight news program- but it's nothing like World News with Charlie Gibson.

World News Now is celebrating their 16th birthday this week and they've been showing clips and interviews with former anchors and producers. Monday morning's broadcast included an interview with former CNN anchor Aaron Brown. Did you know that Aaron Brown was one of the first anchors of the overnight broadcast?


He's not the only person who found their way from ABC to CNN. CNN Washington Bureau Chief, David Bohrman once produced World News Now. He was on the set Monday discussing his time on the program.


Did you see another familiar CNN face in that clip? Anderson Cooper also anchored the World News Now broadcast at one time.

While we're on the topic of ABC news, did you wonder why CNN rebroadcast an ABC debate? President of CNN/U.S, Jon Klein, explained the decision on Howard Kurtz' Reliable Sources on Sunday.


I just couldn't stay away from politics completely. I tried. Anyway, three video clips and I'm done for the night. Have a good week.

Awesome clip of David Bohrman. I had no idea he was so funny. And it was just great to see Aaron from the early days. Thanks, BA.
