AC360 Executive Producer Charlie Moore

Here's an excerpt from an article Missy sent ATA featuring AC360's executive producer Charlie Moore. It's from the Georgia Alumni Magazine, June 2002.

When CNN Headline News recently launched its "New Look" info screen, it got everybody's attention—including USA Today, which described the fact-packed graphics package as "headache inducing."
But for Atlanta's Charlie Moore (AB '93), who rose from intern to executive producer of CNN Headline News in less than five years, the "New Look" package marked the culmination of countless hours of work. And, fortunately, some people liked it—Georgia Trend, for example, naming Moore one of its "Top 40 Under 40" for 2001.

"The format of the viewing screen was changed to resemble a web site, which offers numerous news options," says Moore, whose creation may have taken some getting used to. But to the dismay of its critics, Moore's "New Look" screen has now been copied by every other 24-hour news network.
During the Headline News revamp, Moore logged 18- to 20-hour days. Fortunately, his work schedule has become somewhat normal again, enabling him to get reacquainted with his wife, a clothing designer in Atlanta.


It's a bit like playing 'where's Waldo', but here are a few pictures of Charlie on remotes with Anderson Cooper. Can you find Waldo errr...Charlie?

Thank you Sheryn a look at something good from 360. Love to read his blog posts when they're out in the field - they are always so informative about things other than what the other regulars post.

Charlie Moore sounds like a very hard working and smart guy. And AC 360 is very lucky to have him! Charlie is, also, a native of Albany, Georgia.
