NEW YORK (AP) — Bill Weir's new series on CNN will entail a lot of travel.

CNN said Monday the former ABC newsman will host "The Wonder List" starting next year. The series will be about people, places and cultures at a crossroad.

The last person to see a Bengal tiger in the wild or hike a glacier in Montana may actually be alive today, given the rate of planetary change. Weir said the series will examine the reasons for that and also take viewers to places like the Dead Sea; Venice, Italy; and Africa.

CNN said "The Wonder List" will debut with eight episodes in prime time early in the year.
