The venture will bring CNN.gr, a localised digital and mobile version of CNN to the Greek people.

Raad, Chief Commercial Officer, CNN International. “From branded channels and content syndication through our affiliates to high-profile marketing and engagement initiatives, CNN is connecting with more consumers worldwide in a multitude of ways than ever before. In an increasingly digital world, I’m delighted to welcome CNN.gr as a standalone digital CNN-branded news service, launched with a valued partner.”
