CNN also will move the CNN digital series Go There to CNN+. The show will be hosted by CNN correspondents, live from their postings around the world.
The new shows are among a series of recent programming announcements for CNN+, which have included daily shows headlined by Chris Wallace and Kasie Hunt.
