Amanpour, O'Hearn set new CNN show

Half-hour weekday program to launch in September

Veteran news producer Kathy O'Hearn has teamed with CNN's chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour for a new program.

O'Hearn will executive produce the New York-based, half-hour weekday program, which will launch in September airing during European primetime on CNN International and on Sunday afternoons on CNN.

This marks the return of O'Hearn to CNN, where she navigated the network's coverage of the Sept.11 attacks and shepherded the launch of "American Morning With Paula Zahn."

O'Hearn most recently worked at ABC, where she was involved in the network's coverage of the 2008 U.S. presidential election and served as executive producer for "This Week With George Stephanopoulos" for three years.
