My apologies for the absence of updated blogs on our site. We promise to change this and improve our efforts in the coming weeks. And, here's why:
Starting next Monday, the people behind the scenes are switching up their roles. On your televisions, the changes will be mostly unnoticeable. The presenters remain the same - Isha will host the earlier edition of I-Desk, while Hala hosts the later edition. But, behind the scenes, the producers are tweaking their duties. Terri the Wall Producer, who helped launch the I-Desk show last year, is moving up to main producer of Isha's programme. It's a well deserved promotion. Meanwhile, the man handling those duties now, David the Producer, is moving over to Hala's programme. And, the current producer of Hala's programme, Javier the Senior Producer, is going to move over to Isha's programme as the Supervisor.
So, what does this mean for you? Bottom line: A little bit of a different feel to both shows, but nothing dramatic. And, more importantly - A more active focus on this blog site, as well as our Facebook page (Search: CNN I-Desk). Hala and Javier will share duties, to keep you posted on what's happening at the I-Desk.
And, as always, we want YOUR feedback. Let us know what you like, don't like, what works, doesn't work, etc. We love hearing from you!
See you at the I-Desk!
