Another big travel week for the CNN anchors and reporters as we head into Super Tuesday...
John Roberts on the 'set' of the Oval Office at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley prior to Wednesday's debate. Even while perched on director's chairs they still need their laptops available!
Meanwhile, Wolf Blitzer
and John King model
the latest in headset
outside the Kodak
Theatre in Los Angeles
They had quite a crowd
behind them, which I'm
sure contributed to a lot
of noise and necessitated
the rockstar look!
Also this week, terrorism analyst Peter Bergen had a report on NewsRoom Thursday morning. Peter is lecturing at Harvard this semester, and looks very much like a cool professor...
Where in the World...?
On Sunday, Dana Bash was in Orlando, Florida; Suzanne Malveaux was in Birmingham, Alabama; and Ali Velshi ended his bus tour in Palm Springs, California. (Nice job if you can get it!)
For the State of the Union address on Monday, John Roberts and Suzanne Malveaux were in DC, as was Wolf Blitzer, who had lunch with the President and Vice President (and several other network anchors). Wolf arrived about 20 minutes late for The Situation Room, which was broadcast from the Election Center in NYC; John King filled in until his late arrival. Elsewhere, Michael Holmes filed a report from Samarra.
Tuesday was the Florida primary, and John Roberts was in Winter Park, Florida; Dana Bash was in Miami; and Candy Crowley was in Davie, Florida. Suzanne Malveaux was in Kansas City, Missouri, while Ali Velshi reported from the Chicago Board of Trade.
CNN hosted a Republican debate on Wednesday in Simi Valley, California. Anderson Cooper moderated; also in town were John Roberts and Dana Bash, while Wolf Blitzer and Candy Crowley were in nearby Los Angeles. Suzanne Malveaux was in New Orleans. Nic Robertson reported from Nairobi, Kenya.
Thursday was the Democratic debate, hosted by Wolf Blitzer in Los Angeles. Seemed like half of CNN was in town for the event, including John Roberts, Dana Bash, Sanjay Gupta, Suzanne Malveaux, John King, and Candy Crowley. Anderson Cooper, meanwhile, was back in NY on a very bare set for 360.
Friday, Wolf Blizter was back in NY, Dana Bash was in Villa Park, Illinois, and Soledad O'Brien was in Chicago. And John Roberts went coast-to-coast, starting the day on American Morning in LA and ending it on Election Center in NY.
(Michael Holmes, pictured above, had a report from Baghdad airing on International which was not seen on Domestic because Your World Today has been preempted all week for political coverage; it is available in the Video area of CNN.com.)
