CNN will bring back its “State of the Race” program to CNN International as the 2024 U.S. presidential race heats up.

Anchor Kasie Hunt will anchor the show from the network’s Washington, D.C. studios. The show is being “reimagined,” according to the network.

The “hourlong show will deliver a daily look at the status of the election in America by breaking news, driving conversations and cutting through the partisan noise. With a blend of newsmaker interviews, discussions and reporting from the field, ‘State of the Race’ will also bring viewers the latest on the candidates, their campaigns and the voters they seek to represent,” the announcement says.

The show will air at 11 a.m. eastern starting Sept. 27, 2023.

CNN International is making additional enhancements to its weekday lineup with award-winning journalist Bianna Golodryga joining Zain Asher as co-anchor of a refreshed “One World” at noon eastern, covering the world’s most pressing issues with a key focus on U.S. politics as we move closer to the 2024 election.

Together Asher and Golodryga will draw from their unique backgrounds and drive conversation with the decision makers, entrepreneurs and cultural icons influencing change in the US and around the world. As part of these changes “Connect the World with Becky Anderson” moves to 9 a.m. eastern, reaching audiences in the Middle East and beyond an hour earlier at 5 p.m. UAE time.
