CNN International adds new programming from Middle East regional hub

CNN International announced that it is expanding its Middle East programming portfolio with the launch of ‘One Square Meter’, a new segment within CNN’s ‘Global Exchange’ which will explore the development of residential and commercial real estate in fast-growing emerging markets.

The new weekly segment airs Tuesdays at 1600 GMT / 2000 UAE and joins ‘Inside the Middle East’ and ‘Marketplace Middle East’ as the latest addition to the feature programming output from CNN’s Middle East broadcast and production centre in Abu Dhabi.

From Sao Paolo to St. Petersburg, Shanghai to Dubai, Mumbai to Lusaka, ‘One Square Meter’ goes to every corner of the world to explore leading architectural designs, rising hotspots and demand for property internationally.

Deborah Rayner, VP and Managaing Editor for CNN International EMEA, said, “As the leading international news brand in the Middle East, we’re pleased to continue our investment in highly relevant programming from the region for our international audiences with the addition of ‘One Square Meter’. Understanding the economics of the emerging markets through the prism of the property market will provide added insight for viewers for whom this part of the world is of increasing relevance for their business.”
