CNN goes on recession road trip

Anderson Cooper to hit five cities next week

Anderson Cooper will follow Tom Brokaw out on the American road to report on the economic crisis.

CNN announced Thursday that Cooper will file recession-related dispatches from five U.S. cities as part of a weeklong special package of economy-related coverage branded “Road to the Rescue: A CNN Survival Guide.”

The full week of coverage starts Monday and will extend across the news cabler’s international and broadband platforms.

During this week, all CNN daytime and primetime programs will focus on the economic crises at home and abroad.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Brokaw will be hitting the road this spring for NBC Universal, filing economy-related dispatches for a wide-ranging project involving NBC, USA Network and MSNBC.
