CNN is bringing its digital style site to television.
Aptly named “CNN Style,” the show will debut on April 9.
The monthly, half-hour show will premier on CNN International, and will be a companion to the network’s digital style vertical, which was launched in July.
According to CNN, the TV show will be informed by the work of Elsa Klensch, who produced and hosted “Style with Elsa Klensch” for the network from 1980 to 2001. The new show, which will be hosted by Derek Blasberg, will cover luxury, art, fashion, autos, architecture and design, CNN said, offering that the first episode will feature pop star Rita Ora, Qatari art collector Sheikha Al-Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani, British artist Tracey Emin and F1 star Lewis Hamilton.
This year, CNN Style will cover a variety of events including New York’s Met Gala, Milan Design Week and the Venice Architecture Biennale.
“We are taking inspiration from CNN’s rich past in style and reverse engineering the DNA from our hugely successful digital product to bring CNN Style to TV viewers worldwide,” Ellana Lee, senior vice president of CNN International said.
