CNN International names sports anchor

CNN International has named Lara Baldesarra the anchor of its program World Sport. Previously the anchor of Golf Central at Golf Channel, Baldesarra will assume her flashy new role at World Sport in December.

"Can't wait to get started!" Baldesarra tweeted.

Meanwhile, Capital New York's Alex Weprin said of the move, "CNN has hired @LaraBaldesarra to bolster its sports coverage. There is more sports coming down the pipeline."

"Welcome to the @WorldSportCNN team @LaraBaldesarra - great to have you on board!! Can I go on holiday now?" CNN World Sports Correspondent Alex Thomas asked, hopefully.
