ATLANTA - Princell Hair, who heads the U.S. news operations at CNN, is giving the term "road show" new meaning.
Anchor Paula Zahn will be the host of a town hall meeting at 8 tonight in Canton, Ohio. Folks from the battleground state will get the chance to pose questions to campaign operatives for President Bush and Sen. John Kerry.
"It is a format I like a lot because I think it is spontaneous," said Zahn.
But Hair plans to send anchors of the prime-time shows, as well as the afternoon political programs, on the road as well. Lou Dobbs is going to Washington, Aaron Brown to Seattle, Judy Woodruff to Philadelphia.
