The first channel to provide 24-hour news coverage, the CNN Center is place that takes people to see how the news is delivered around the world. Plus the place has a food court and shops, and very close to the other attractions, like the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coco-Cola.
There is an option to pick a tour time, and then when it comes, everyone has to go through security, similar to the airport. Then go up an escalator, where there is a news desk, where one can get a picture taken, sitting at it, for a fee.
First, we were shown how the news and weather are delivered, with the teleprompter and the green screen. Then the other behind-the-scenes stuff, like a peek into CNN and Headline News (HLN). The tour ends with a short promo film on CNN.
A nice way to pass an hour, as well as to cool off, while in Atlanta. The tour was very informative and interesting, and worth checking out, even if it's a bit overpriced. But that's only if time permits.
