Turner, CNN to relocate London offices in 2019

Turner, the parent company of CNN, will relocate its London offices and European headquarters in January 2019 to 160 Old Street EC1, leaving its current location on Great Marlborough Street.

The change will mean a new purpose-built CNN London newsroom and studio to house the network’s Europe, Middle East and Africa newsgathering, production and broadcast operations, along with a new global hub for CNN International Commercial operations.

“We found a building that will allow us to execute our diverse and expanding range of businesses, reflects our culture and is attractive to existing and future employees, all of which was vital to our growth plans,” said Giorgio Stock, president Turner EMEA. 

The move will also include the London staff of HBO and Time Warner.

“This is an exciting move which will put us at the heart of a vibrant and creative community which shares our values of enterprise and innovation. The thinking has been long in the making and this is an important moment for us as a company to mark our next incarnation in London.”

The lease begins at the new location in early 2019 with staff expected to occupy the premises in autumn 2019.
