Review: CNN Studio Tour, Atlanta, Georgia, United States

On our last full day in town, we ended up doing the CNN Studio Tour. Cable News Network offers both a general tour and a more exclusive VIP Tour with smaller groups. We opted for the VIP tour, mostly to avoid large scale tours. 

We walked over from the hotel towards the CNN Center just one block from the hotel. The building was pretty unmistakable with the large sign right outside.

Once inside, we waited at the ticket desks until it was our time to get going.

The start of the tour involved the usual funny studio tour photographs. It was fun and a great souvenir.

Some hurricane damage as well… …I am reporting in a T – Shirt no less.

The tour took us through some control rooms and television sets. We weren’t able to take photographs through all areas of the tour, only a few rooms at the start.

We also got the opportunity to visit the Headline News (HLN) sets and got to have quite a chat with one of the part time anchors. One of the more interesting aspects of the tour was their ability to broadcast live news events within 5 minutes (for major catastrophic stories) to the entire population of the US. It was a pretty neat interactive experience overall and I’d highly recommend a visit if you are a news consumer like I am.
