Atlanta CNN Center

The Atlanta CNN Center is the headquarters of the cable-TV news service. A visit here will give you a behind-the-scenes glance at the 24-hour news organization in high-tech action, including a visit to production areas not accessible to the general public.

Your first stop at the Atlanta CNN Center is in the lobby, where you can have a videotape made of yourself while reading news stories from a CNN anchor desk. Next, you’ll learn about the history of CNN through interactive kiosks and CNN memorabilia. In the special-effects studio, see how global news is produced via modern technology.

The highlight of the a visit to the Atlanta CNN Center is watching the action of the main CNN newsroom from a glass-walled observation tower. You’ll see writers composing new scripts, camera operators positioning cameras, and maybe even a live broadcast.

Practical Info

The Atlanta CNN Center is located in downtown Atlanta on Marietta Street, just south of the Centennial Olympic Park. You can get to the center via bus or MARTA trains. The walk through the center itself will take about an hour, including a very steep escalator ride.

In the atrium of the CNN Center are several restaurants and shops. Make a point to stop by the Turner Store, which sells movie paraphernalia, network-logo clothing, and gifts.
