Fareed Zakaria will debut his first primetime special this weekend, solidifying his new role at CNN. The special, Restoring the American Dream: A Fareed Zakaria GPS Special, will feature Zakaria’s talks with four global CEOs, who provide advice for businesses and political leaders in the U.S.
His guests will include: Former IBM chairman and CEO Lou Gerstner, Google, Inc. chairman/CEO Eric Schmidt, Coca Cola Company chairman/CEO Muhtar Kent and Alcoa, Inc. chairman/CEO Klaus Kleinfeld.
The CNN press release tells ustheCEOs will discuss “America’s unacceptable unemployment rateÃƒÆ’Â¢ÃƒÂ¢”Å¡Â¬Ãƒâ€šÂ¦and how America can leverage the keys to bringing good jobs back to America–education and innovation.” Because when I want to know about unemployment and the state of the American dream, the first–and only–people I want to hear from are CEOs.
Is Zakaria looking to take Charlie Rose‘s job?
