CNN Atlanta to revamp Newsroom. New Set. Launch HD…

ICN has learned via a tipster that CNN is in the process of revamping its newsroom in Atlanta. A new set is under construction. The current set has been in use since 2000 1998. No specific launch date has been set though I’m hearing maybe late October. Also in the works, HD in Atlanta. It’s not clear whether the new set and HD will simultaneously debut or HD will follow later. If I were to guess, the set won’t debut until HD is ready. But that’s just a guess though it seems likely. CNN Washington launched in HD this week and CNN is also now broadcasting Larry King Live in HD from Los Angeles. That just leaves Atlanta as the most glaring hole in CNN’s HD lineup. More as I hear it…
