Acerca de NewsNight with Aaron Brown
NewsNight with Aaron Brown was a live international news broadcast, which appeared on the CNN network from 2001 to 2005. It aired at 10 p.m. ET on weeknights, hosted by Aaron Brown. In its final year, it was co-hosted by Anderson Cooper.
The show focused on investigative journalism and had a strong emphasis on interviews. It included segments such as The Whip, On the Rise, and Segment 7. The Morning Papers segment, known as The Rooster, featured a brief preview of compelling or interesting headlines from the next day’s newspapers around the world. The segment concluded with the weather forecast in Chicago as provided in the Chicago Sun-Times.
To cover the increased amount of news generated by Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath in September 2005, CNN expanded NewsNight to two hours and added Anderson Cooper as a co-host. These changes were intended to last for the duration of the hurricane’s aftermath, but CNN later announced that it would keep the new format and make Cooper a permanent co-host.
On November 2, 2005, CNN announced that it was cancelling NewsNight and that Brown would leave the network. As of November 7, 2005 the timeslot was given to Cooper’s show, Anderson Cooper 360°.
