So I think this is pretty cool: 

Starting Monday, February 16th I, alongside Rosemary Church CNN will anchor two-hour blocks of a revamped “CNN Newsroom” airing weekdays (M-T) on #CNNInternational and simulcast nightly on #CNN in the US.

Boom -

This means literally no matter where you are in the world, for two hours each weekday you can check in with us, get updates on big #news events and connect here online. This is also technically my first “official” anchor assignment if you’re keeping track – which I am. So yes, I’m #excited about it!

Many of you already tune in joining us from time to time and I’ve got to say a big – #THANKYOU! If you didn’t already watch we wouldn’t be getting a new look and official push forward. 

Congrats to our colleagues John Vause and Zain Asher who will anchor a two-hour block of “CNN Newsroom” before us. We’re now becoming quite the competitive TV couples 

So lets keep it going. Now that it’s official - watch live or set your DVRs:

On CNN 
11p-1a in Los Angeles | 2a-4a in New York 

On CNN International
7a-9a GMT | 3p-5p in Hong Kong

Different seasons, different show times – but we’ll get to that later…

And I’m not getting #married or moving away – you guys are hilarious!

See you soon,

EB

I had the unique privilege of touching a #lion at Antelope Park in #Zimbabwe for 'Inside Africa.' For many reasons these apex predators are in steep decline in #Africa and could become extinct if the trend is not reversed. #CNN

BREAKING: Nelson #Mandela, the man considered to be the father of post-apartheid South Africa, has passed away at age 95. #Madiba, as he’s affectionately called, led a truly remarkable life in which he successfully co-founded the country’s first black law firm, fought against #apartheid, served 27 years in prison because of it and was released only to become the first democratically elected #President in South African history. He would go on to win a Nobel peace prize, negotiate conflicts in #Africa and beyond and establish himself as a global icon for #peace and #reconciliation. Stay tuned to CNN and CNN International for our special coverage of his death, his life and upcoming memorial services.

What does Mandela’s legacy mean to you?
Nelson Mandela, the revered statesman who emerged from prison after 27 years to lead South Africa out of decades of apartheid, has died.

Something for the artsy-types from a recent episode of "Inside Africa." Who is a fan of uniquely African design and architecture?
Johannesburg is now home to Africa's first design museum showcasing work by the continent's finest contemporary design artists.

There's nothing like riding on a #motorcycle through the streets of #Monrovia, #Liberia. Watch me get a tour with "Agent Red" and look at how this war-torn country in West Africa is slowly putting itself back together. +CNN  +CNN Travel +CNN International 
Ten years after the end of civil war, many former soldiers in Liberia are finding work driving motorcycle taxis.

The #Hamas/#Israel conflict has resulted in 1,800+ deaths... And counting. The UN says 70-80% are civilian casualties while the #IDF says it does not target innocent people. Watch my interview with Mark Regev, spokesmen for the #Israeli government, as we discuss concerns surrounding this ongoing war.

There's a lot of disappointment at #Africa's newest country. 1k+ killed, 190k+ displaced and $166mn in aid needed.

There have also been more clashes ahead of South Sudan peace talks which were underway Friday.

South Sudan's army battled rebel forces Thursday, a military spokesman said, as negotiators from the warring sides prepared to meet for peace talks.

Question: If you present a money-making idea to your bosses and they developed it into a success - are you entitled to a cut of the money it made? One man in South Africa says yes, as he takes his former employers at Vodacom to court. It's been going on for years but a decision could come at any moment. Watch my report and tell me what you think the judge should decide.

Did you know George #Lucas shot many scenes from #StarWars in #Tunisia? Even with huge sand dunes engulfing the fictional planet of 'Tatooine' it's still a sight to behold. Take a look at my recent trip to North Africa (article, video, pictures) and see how movie-making has long been a part of life here. #CNN  
Parts of the Star Wars films were shot in the Tunisian desert. The film set is a draw for tourists, but it will soon disappear under a sand dune.

Roughly a five-hour flight from Europe and an alternative to North #African nations experiencing unrest, #Liberia  holds the potential to become a #tourism magnet. I recently visited the West African nation and found that much has been achieved during its ten years of peace - but more needs to be done. #CNN   
10 years after the end of its ruinous civil war Liberia is hoping that peace could bring tourists to its sandy beaches.

From the UK to the States, the UAE and South Africa, I'm meeting fascinating people - so let's connect!
Introduction
ASSIGNMENT: SOUTH AFRICA

For two years I've been criss-crossing the African continent as a correspondent for CNN International and host of the documentary-style program "Inside Africa."

Almost 20 countries later, I've been to all regions of the continent and been consistently surprised by the innovation and perseverance of the African spirit.

I use this space to share some of our recent episodes, online articles and photo galleries of my journey of discovery.

Thanks for watching, feel free to comment on any post and let's continue to bring the world together!
