HistoryEdit

Following the removal of Charlie Rose in December 2017 after his sexual harassment scandal, CNN offered Amanpour to PBS to air in its place. The CNN International show aired in its exact same 30 minute format minus the CNN branding and commercials from December 2017 until September 2018 as Amanpour on PBS. From shortly after PBS picked up the show plans were in the works for an expanded PBS version of the program. The result was Amanpour & Company which was announced in May 2018 with an expanded one hour running time and a third interview block conducted by correspondents from WNET in New York.[3]
