John had a busy week last week hosting AC360 three nights in a row. It was great to see him hosting more than just one night. I don’t know if Anderson will be returning back this week, but if The Coop is still off, I’m sure hoping John will get to fill in again.
Each night of the program opened with a crime story…
Hopefully AC360 will report some follow ups on these stories. It’s probably a given that we’ll be hearing more about Natalee Holloway in the upcoming days, but it would be interesting to also see what the developments are in the “Defensive Neighbor” case as well as the “American Student” Italian murder case.
Coming up this week, we can expect to see John reporting from St. Petersburg, Florida, for the Republican YouTube debate. It will air this Wednesday night and I’m very curious how it will all unfold.
The first YouTube event several months ago was a true experiment, and now that CNN has some experience with the format, it should be interesting to see what kinds of tweaking they have done. For example, many people complained that the screens on stage showing the videos were very hard to see because the images were too small. Will this be adjusted? We’ll find out Wednesday!
Here’s John when he was at The Citadel for the Democratic YouTube debate:
CNN posted a story about the process of selecting questions for the Republican version of the debate.
It reads in part, “CNN’s political unit is keeping the questions a secret, but those selecting them say viewers should be prepared for presentations that are funny, questions that are poignant and a format that is unprecedented for the GOP… There are plenty of animated figures out there, there are certainly some funny questions, but more importantly, there are hundreds, if not thousands of really, really good, solid questions from real people on real issues.”
In addition to the debate, we have John’s Q&A over at All Things Anderson to look forward to. ATA has not posted a date when his answers will be added to their blog, but hopefully it won’t be too long.
It should be a busy week here at johnthenewsking!
