Amanpour. is a new program hosted by CNN's chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour. The show features interviews with top news makers on current events. The program airs on CNN International (at 2100 CET/2000 GMT with a second airing for Asian audiences the following day at 2100 SIN/HK time) and on Sundays at 2:00pm EST on CNN domestic in the U.S.[1] Amanpour. airs live Monday through Friday in New York City. The Saturday and Sunday editions are a one hour compilation of the program, taped Fridays, with the exception of breaking news.

The weekday program has three segments. The first is typically with a high profile news maker or politican. The second segment is with an analyst who dissects what the previous guest just told Amanpour. And the final segment is called the "P.S." or post script, which is a short look a story not covered in the mainstream press.

Often times the "P.S." features part of the program's "GlobalDispatch" series where Amanpour plays a for a short film or a clip from a documentary or feature film.

When the anchor is reporting in the field, she anchors the entire program remotely as she has done in Abu Dhabi and Haiti since the program began.

The show has featured a number of high profile interviews: including Robert Mugabe, Jacob Zuma, Queena Rania, 'Son of Hamas' author Mosab Hassan Yousef, Isaeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak, a rare joint interview with Sec. of State Hillary Clinton and Sec. of Defense Bob Gates, an unprecedented joint interview with the U.N. Ambassadors to India, Afghanistan and Pakistan, Mohamed ElBaradei, Hans Blix, NATO Secretary General Rasmussen, Gen. McChrystal, the first-ever joint interview with media power couple Tina Brown and Harry Evans, Gen. David Petraeus.

In January of 2010 in the Haiti earthquake aftermath, Amanpour interviewed the Haitian Prime Minister and President, both sharing one microphone and an earpiece with Ms. Amanpour fluently switching between French and English.

On October 30, 2009 via Twitter, Amanpour was the first reporter in the world to report that Afghan Presidential Candidate Abdullah Abdullah was withdrawing from the elections.

On the January 10, 2010 edition of the program, Israeli opposition leader and former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livini told Amanpour that she was willing to face arrest over a UK warrant. When Amanpour questioned her, Livni cut her off and said, "For me, this is not a question." [2]

The studio is the same set on which Anderson Cooper, Campbell Brown and American Morning tape their programs, though it's reconfigured and features black, red and teal colors.
