CNN is sharing the premiere dates and an on-air look for its new daytime programming block, CNN News Central. The news block, modeled after CNN’s special election programming, will have a staggered rollout — launching its 9 a.m.-12 p.m. ET block on Monday, April 3, and the 1-4 p.m. block two weeks later on Monday, April 17. Both editions of CNN News Central will broadcast from redesigned studios featuring heavy use of graphics and emphasizing on-location reporting. Victor Blackwell, who most recently co-anchored the weekday afternoon edition of CNN Newsroom, has returned to his former weekend home as the co-anchor of CNN This Morning Weekend, making his first appearance alongside Amara Walker in Atlanta this past weekend.
