Team Kyra's launching a new weekly segment, in conjunction with our friends at CNN International. Every Friday, the anchor of CNNI's BackStory, Michael Holmes, will join Kyra with his pick of the week's "BS" pieces. (I swear... that's THEIR abbreviation for the show, not mine!) The show's mission: to show you some of the behind-the-scenes stuff that goes into CNN's reporting.
We've kicked things off with a special BackStory segment, on a special day, about a special guy.
Meet Hamdi: one minute, a CNN Baghdad security consultant... the next, a stranger in a strange land. He's just moved to the States with his family after gaining refugee status.
If you want to watch the full piece BackStory ran on Hamdi's journey, you can find it here. And as Kyra said - keep an eye out for Hamdi's :30 Pitch - we hope to make it happen this Thursday!
