It is worth the time and cost to take a tour of the CNN facility in Atlanta as you actually watch some live broadcasts from behind windows such as the weather with a blue screen behind the person, yet it has the weather maps showing up on the TV screen.

We also were fortunate to see two CNN news anchors do their work and then we ran into them in the CNN lobby afterwards when they were on their coffee break. One of them was Anderson Cooper.
