“Bloomberg Daybreak” adds Middle East show
Bloomberg Television has started a new morning show “Bloomberg Daybreak: Middle East” from its studio in Dubai.
“Bloomberg Daybreak” also airs from Hong Kong, London, New York and Sydney, with the Middle East edition bridging the gap between Asia and Europe’s trading days.
It replaces “Bloomberg Markets: Middle East.”
The announcement follows the recent news that Bloomberg and Saudi Research and Marketing Group have signed a long-term agreement to launch a new Arabic-language business and financial news service. It will provide Arabic-speaking audiences with news and analysis on the companies, markets, economies and politics shaping the Middle East.
Long-standing European anchor Manus Cranny relocates to Dubai from London to co-anchor the new morning show with Yousef Gamal El-Din. They are joined on air by Tracy Alloway, executive editor of Bloomberg Markets from Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
“The relocation of senior anchor Manus Cranny to join our growing network of more than 80 reporters, analysts and economists across 12 bureaus in the Middle East, not only strengthens our global footprint, but gives business and financial professionals deeper access to the region’s news makers and market-moving news,” said Al Mayers, global head of Bloomberg Television and Bloomberg Radio.
Cranny will continue to co-anchor “Bloomberg Daybreak: Europe” on Bloomberg Television and Radio from Dubai, with Anna Edwards in London.
Cranny has more than 30 years of business, finance and news experience. He joined Bloomberg Television in 2010 as an anchor and European markets editor, having previously covered equity, commodity and Forex markets as a broker and salesperson.
