WNET and PBS have recently added Amanpour & Company to their stable of daily news and public affairs series. The one-hour program, presented by PBS stations every weeknight, can also be streamed the following day at PBS.org and Passport. Featuring award-winning CNN Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour, who is based in London, the series features wide-ranging in-depth conversations with global thought leaders on the issues and trends of the day. Subjects range from politics, business and technology to arts, science and sports. The broadcast also features four correspondents based in New York: Hari Sreenivasen, Michel Martin, Walter Isaacson, and Alicia Menendez, who provide additional interviews and content. Amanpour & Company is a collaboration between WLIW LLC for WNET, and CNN.
Co-Executive Producer Gina Kim sits down with Tom Stewart and WNET Up Next to provide a behind the scenes look into how the program is created. She also shares the arc of her career in the world of media, including stints with filmmaker Michael Moore, broadcaster Phil Donahue, and journalist Bill Moyers. Earlier this year, she was Executibe Producer of #Me Too, Now What? for PBS.
