They'll begin the research initiative this summer

CNN and Georgia Institute of Technology have announced that they will work together this summer to study the potential use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) by the media, and explore the access and safety issues associated with such a project. 
 
“Our hope is that by working cooperatively to share knowledge, we can accelerate the process for CNN and other media organizations to safely integrate this new technology into their coverage plans,” said David Vigilante, CNN’s Senior Vice President, Legal. “It’s a natural opportunity to work with our neighbors at Georgia Tech, who have experience, expertise and insights into this area.”

Senior staff members at CNN and Georgia Tech researchers plan to share their research data with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to ensure that the national air space is used safely. 
 
While the use of UAVs could prove effective for media coverage, these vehicles haven't been well received in some other spaces (which could be an issue once CNN and Georgia Tech start their research initiative). For example, UAVs were recently banned from all U.S. national parks due to their negative effects on the environment and the animals within these parks.
