PREMIERE talk host GLENN BECK is joining CNN HEADLINE NEWS for a new prime-time TV show. BECK's new one-hour nightly show is described as "an unconventional look at the news of the day featuring Beck’s unique and often amusing perspective" looking at "water cooler issues." The show launches in APRIL from the network's NEW YORK studios, and BECK will continue to host his radio show for PREMIERE.
"When we revamped HEADLINE NEWS a year ago, we said we were eager to launch different types of programming, and this new show is the next step in that evolution," said CNN WORLDWIDE EVP KEN JAUTZ. "GLENN is an incredibly entertaining personality and we’re excited to embark on this collaboration. He will be a great addition to our HEADLINE PRIME line-up."
