Robyn Curnow is a CNN anchor and host of CNN International's CNN Newsroom with Robyn Curnow, which airs Friday at 6pm and 7pm ET, Saturday at 2pm and 4pm ET, and Sunday at 5pm, 6pm and 7pm ET.

Curnow previously served as a CNN correspondent in Johannesburg and London. She is based at CNN’s headquarters in Atlanta.

Curnow has reported extensively on U.S. President Donald Trump and his administration, tracking the diplomatic and geopolitical implications for CNN’s international viewers around the world.

She has anchored CNN’s coverage of multiple terror attacks across Europe and North Africa, and continues to report on North Korea and the ongoing Syrian war. She was part of CNN’s Emmy-nominated coverage of a 2018 airstrike on a school bus in Yemen that killed dozens of children.

When Robert Mugabe resigned as Zimbabwe’s president in 2017, Curnow was integral to the network’s coverage of the long-ruling autocrat, which was recognized with a 2019 Royal Television Society Award in the Breaking News category.

Curnow was on air when coalition forces launched the Mosul offensive in October 2016, which contributed to News and Documentary Emmy nomination for CNN, and she reported live from Havana on the death of Fidel Castro as well as U.S. President Barack Obama’s historic trip to Cuba in 2016.

While based in South Africa as a correspondent, Curnow led CNN's coverage of Nelson Mandela's death and reported live from his funeral. Curnow had a long association with Mandela, interviewing him a number of times during and after his presidency. Her conversation with him on his 90th birthday was the last interview he gave.

Curnow has interviewed Oscar Pistorius and was based in Pretoria during his murder trial. Her documentary on the Olympian, commissioned by Anderson Cooper 360°, also featured exclusive footage and interviews with Pistorius' inner circle.

Curnow has interviewed former U.S. President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, as well as former U.S. President Bill Clinton. Separately, she has also spoken to former First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

She has covered a wide range of stories from Africa such as the HIV/AIDS epidemic, the soccer World Cup, political scandals involving South African President Jacob Zuma and Boko Haram. She traveled extensively on the continent and reported from Zimbabwe on human rights abuses and corruption.

Curnow started reporting for CNN in 2001 in London, covering stories like the death of Pope John Paul II from the Vatican, the South Asian tsunami and the London bombings in 2005.

Before joining CNN, Curnow was a reporter for the BBC and for the South African Broadcasting Corporation.

Curnow is South African and graduated with a master’s degree in International Relations from Cambridge University.

Next week's lunch will be in Ann Cramer Room
Hello Kiwanians!
Next Tuesday, our Kiwanis Club of Atlanta luncheon will be upstairs in the Ann Cramer room!  This is a smaller room, so be sure to arrive early.  Once we reach capacity, all others, as well as late arrivals, will be directed to the overflow room down the hall, which has been piped in for audio.  You can reach the Ann Cramer room by the back stairs, or take the elevator to the 2nd floor, turn right and join your Kiwanis friends for a fabulous lunch and program
Thanks for your flexibility as we work with the Loudermilk Center for a win-win partnership!

KCA Communications and Bulletins - We Want to Talk to You!
Are you having trouble receiving the KCA Bulletins and other email communications?  It appears that computer systems/servers who use Symantec are having trouble getting communications from our ClubRunner system delivered to their inboxes.  While we work on this issue with ClubRunner, I have an email list serve set up through Outlook to send the bulletins out each week to those who need it.  And if you are  having trouble receiving your quarterly bills, I can send them to you through QuickBooks.  Just email me at and I will add you to the list!
We Need YOU to be a part of the "Lunch Bunch"!
Our club is looking for folks who are willing to become part of the "Lunch Bunch" team!  Team members will help the lunch meetings operate smoothly by working the a/v board and sounds system in the back, ensuring that any a/v the speakers use are properly set up, and working the microphones during the Q&A sessions!
While no technical experience is necessary, volunteers should feel comfortable and confident adjusting sound levels and setting up the computer for power point and video presentations.  And the benefit is a dedicated comfy seat at the a/v table during lunch!  wink
Please contact Karen at to sign up!
Member Networking - Have a Spotlight Shine on You!
Do you want to let the members of our club know more about you and your business?  Do you want to network and cultivate more business contacts?  If you answered yes, then you need to sign up to do a "Member Spotlight" at one of our club meetings!
