CBS & CNN To Renew Talks

Spokesmen for both CBS and Turner Broadcasting System April 29 confirmed reports that the two will renew discussions about a working partnership between CBS News and % Cable News Network in the gathering of news.

The relationship presumably would go well beyond the “limited experiment” in which CNN and CBS News shared a bureau and satellite equipment in Berlin.

The talks come just as CBS News is laying off about 100 staffers and downsizing bureaus, while CNN is expanding bureaus.

Last year, CBS prexy Laurence A. Tisch met with Ted Turner for what was then described as a “far-ranging, initial conversation.”

Industry sources say that one way CBS News and CNN could come together is via an expansion of the Berlin bureau experiment, with the two sharing not only bureau facilities domestically and internationally, but also some news footage.
