CNN's flagship news broadcast, it is anchored by Wolf Blitzer, Joie Chen, and Jim Moret. The anchors are ususally in Washington, Atlanta, and Los Angeles respectively to give the show a presence in all of CNN's reporting hubs. It was created in 1998 when the network revamped its prime time linup and shuffled much of the Washington reporting staff. The show is normally an hour long and closes with a fluff piece by fluff-master Jeannie Moos.

Yet another reason that CNN is more addictive than crack.

The show was killed in very early 2001 as CNN moved to a prime time full of 30 minute talk shows and Larry King Live. They made the switch from more polished, produced work to talk because of ratings pressure from more tabloid-style MSNBC and Fox News Channel.
