The new series, an expansion of CNN’s flagship program Amanpour, will continue to air on CNN International weekdays.
“I’m delighted to expand my role at PBS from interim to permanent along with this remarkable diversity of voices and views. Never has the time for exploring our world and America’s place in it been so urgent. And I am also thrilled to be a female filling this role at this time!” said Amanpour.
