Hosted by CNN's chief Washington correspondent Jake Tapper, "State of the Union" features one-on-one interviews with top newsmakers on politics and policy. Often joined by a round table of expert guests, the Sunday morning program covers Washington, the country, and the world, and goes beyond the Beltway for a perspective on how everyday Americans are faring.
Veteran journalist Howard Kurtz is no stranger to criticizing the media. He did it for 20 years as a media columnist for The Washington Post and as host of CNN's long-running "Reliable Sources" from 1998 through the first half of 2013. So it's no surprise that shortly after departing CNN in mid-2013 for rival Fox News Channel he would premiere a show for his new employer that is modeled after his previous program. In addition to Kurtz and his weekly panel discussing how the press covers a variety of topics that include technology, social media, politics and sports, the host also interviews some of the country's top journalists. And, as you might expect in these social mediacentric times, "MediaBuzz" features some viewers' questions and comments on the show.

The Monday to Friday nightly news program features compelling newsmaker interviews, provides lively debates and offers in-depth analysis of the latest news and global headlines.

After airing several different programs in this time slot in recent years, CNN attempts to solidify its prime-time schedule by moving Chris Cuomo to the toughest hour in cable news. Cuomo, the former co-anchor of CNN's morning show "New Day," eschews panel discussions in favor of in-depth one-on-one interviews that test politicians and newsmakers on their positions. He also analyzes the news of the day and presents breaking news. Described by one publication as "America's toughest news anchor," Cuomo wants his show to be known as one that debates with decency. "The need is clear," he says. "Hopefully we help fill it."
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines with in-depth reporting and investigations. Through nightly "Keeping Them Honest" reports, Anderson keeps his commitment to holding those in power accountable. And, of course, there's the RidicuList, a tongue-in-cheek commentary on the day's news that may leave viewers (and Anderson) laughing. Joining him are guests that frequently include political and legal analysts.
