CNN TRAVELS ON THE ROAD TO SINGAPORE
Thursday, September 3, 2015
Special week of coverage from 14-21 September
Singapore is the latest stop in CNN International’s On The Road series, the programming strand that examines the culture, heritage, business and customs of a country.
The series, which has also visited Thailand, Japan, Indonesia, and Myanmar embraces a wide range of topics, from arts and cuisine, through to technology, architecture and sport.
Beginning on September 14, CNN International correspondent Paula Newton, will explore the nation that is celebrating its 50th birthday and looking to reinvent itself without losing sight of its past. As well as featuring on CNN International TV, On The Road Singapore will also have a dedicated web page at CNN.com/Singapore.
Vice President of Advertising Sales, CNN International Asia Pacific, Sunita Rajan: “CNN’s On The Road series is popular with both audiences and advertisers. Our viewers like it because it’s high-quality content that digs deep and shows a different side to a destination, while our advertisers like it because they can engage with an audience of business decision-makers and influencers. SC Global will have messaging around the TV content while the Singapore Tourism Promotion Board will have visibility on digital.”
On The Road Singapore stories air September 14-18 during CNN Today at 7am HKT and News Stream at 8pm HKT while a 30-min special will air September 19-21.
