Anthony Bourdain Joins CNN to Host New Weekend Program
Anthony Bourdain is moving over to CNN from the Travel Channel to be the host of a new weekend program that will expand the network's coverage on food and travel.
Bourdain will still be managed by Zero Point Zero Production, who has been working with Bourdain for over a decade. According to a CNN press release, the show is slated to launch early in 2013 and will be shot on location. It will air domestically on Sundays in prime time with repeat airings on Saturday nights.
Bourdain will also be offering commentary on other CNN programs and platforms and "providing insights into current events and debates around food and health and other cultural conversations."
According to Media Bistro, Bourdain will be exclusive to CNN when the new show launches. Travel Channel will either have to cancel or find a new host for "No Reservations" at that time.
The man is literally going everywhere.
