Posted Friday, September 8, 2018 by RODNEY HO/rho@ajc.com on his AJC Radio & TV Talk blog

CNN is currently putting together a one-hour tribute to Anthony Bourdain that will air tonight at 10 p.m. and repeated at 10 p.m. Sunday after Bourdain’s newest episode of “Parts Unknown” set in Berlin.

It will also air some of Bourdain’s favorite episodes of the show on Saturday night.

The Emmy-winning series, which came to CNN in 2013, is currently in its 11th season. 

The Atlanta-based network’s home page of cnn.com features a National Suicide Prevention Lifeline ad across the top. And it has a running set of stories related to Bourdain including a tribute from his friend Eric Ripert and how the owner of Bourdain’s favorite deli left Bourdain’s usual breakfast order alongside an empty chair today. 

The Travel Channel, which aired 142 episodes of Bourdain’s previous show “No Reservations” from 2005 to 2012, will hold a 12-hour marathon of past episodes from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday. 

Among the episodes are those where he visited Laos, Spain’s Costa Brava and the “two Maines.”
