CNBC’s “Squawk Box” unveils a new set
Morning business news show “Squawk Box” unveiled a new set on Wednesday.
The high-tech anchor desk is comprised of 57-degree angles and therefore appears to defy gravity. The studio also features cutting-edge lighting, motorized trusses and hydraulic floors.
The entire set of the CNBC show can be stored in its entirety within mere minutes, making way for the NASDAQ to open for trading at 9:30 a.m., only 30 minutes after the show ends.
The set overlooks the streets of Times Square.
The show, which airs from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m., moved to NASDAQ in early 2017. For the previous year, the show had been broadcast from a studio in midtown Manhattan. It previously aired from CNBC’s headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.
“Squawk Box” is currently anchored by Joe Kernen, Becky Quick and Andrew Ross Sorkin and has been on the air since 1995.
