Vladimir Duthiers takes on Nigeria post for CNN


Vladimir Duthiers takes on Nigeria post for CNN

Vladimir Duthiers is to take on the role of CNN international correspondent based in Lagos, Nigeria, the network announced today.

Duthiers will join CNN’s contingent of Africa-based correspondents across the continent, as the network reaffirms its commitment to Nigeria. CNN currently has key bureaus in Lagos, Nairobi and Johannesburg – all headed up by bureau chief Kim Norgaard - as well as three weekly programs on CNN International focused on the continent: Marketplace Africa, Inside Africa and African Voices.

Parisa Khosravi, Senior Vice President for CNN Worldwide in charge of International Newsgathering, said: “Vladimir’s passion for journalism, impressive business background and his knack as a natural storyteller make him a fantastic choice to cover such a vibrant country and region.”

Duthiers joined CNN in 2009 as part of Christiane Amanpour's original news program, Amanpour. He most recently served as an associate producer for Anderson Cooper 360°.

When an earthquake shook Haiti in January 2010, Duthiers was among the first journalists to arrive in Port-au-Prince. He spent several weeks on the ground field producing for CNN – including the AC360° team – which went on to win two Emmy awards for its coverage of the quake.

Earlier this year, Duthiers was on the scene as the Occupy Nigeria movement exploded onto the streets of Lagos. His reporting put the focus on the economic struggles of ordinary Nigerians and the tensions surrounding recent attacks by the Islamist terror group, Boko Haram.

Duthiers, who is fluent in French and Haitian Creole, has taken an unusual route to a career in journalism. Prior to joining CNN, he spent nearly 20 years in the financial services industry, travelling extensively around the world for clientele in 21 countries.

Duthiers holds a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Rhode Island and an M.S. from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.

Your Views on the News 4/21/12


Mediaite pointed out: Ed Schultz‘s The Ed Show put up some impressive numbers Thursday, topping both CNN and HLN combined in the demo and total viewers. Schultz averaged 230,000 demo viewers, which was more than Anderson Cooper and Nancy Grace‘s respective programs put together. Schultz has been a tour-de-force at the network with his steadily strong 8pm slot ratings performance for MSNBC over the past couple of months.

We know you've noticed the decline in CNN's numbers. Our question? Can CNN hold on until the conventions and the elections give them a ratings bump or will changes come before November?

SANJAY GUPTA, MD – Saturday and Sunday 7:30AM – 8:00AM
For decades, doctors have relied on Body Mass Index – or BMI, a ratio of height to weight – to categorize people as overweight and obese. But a new study suggests the obesity crisis in America may be even worse than we thought. Sanjay takes a 250-pound 12-year-old boy to the hospital to show him exactly what all the extra weight is doing to his body. Also, since her 1996 Olympic debut at the age of 14, swimmer Amanda Beard has won seven Olympic medals, and is now training to land a spot in her fifth Olympics this summer in London. But throughout her career, Amanda has struggled with a negative body image and self-destructive behavior. She opens up about an adolescence filled with abuse, eating disorders and even “cutting.”

Forbes Speculation....


Under the heading of: Guessing What's Next For Keith Olbermann from Forbes

CNN might hire him, as, in fact, it tried to do so some years ago. Granted, that was under its old president, Jon Klein, not its current one, Ken Jautz. It’s definitely a long shot, as Olbermann’s outspoken liberalism would sit uneasily with CNN’s aversion to taking sides. Sensibility-wise, though, he might be a fit with Piers Morgan, another host whose visible self-regard is part of his love-him-or-hate-him appeal. An Olbermann hiring would be bad news for Erin Burnett, who show “OutFront” is the weakest link in CNN’s primetime lineup. It would also leave the network with an evening schedule consisting entirely of white men.
