CNBC’s Frost to stop anchoring “Closing Bell”
Dan Colarusso, senior vice president of business news at CNBC, sent out the following on Thursday to the staff:
The pandemic has shown many of us how important it is to be close to our families. It’s no different for Wilfred Frost, who last summer informed us of his desire to move back to the UK. In the spring, Wilf will start a new adventure in London, including working with our sister network, Sky News, while remaining a CNBC and NBC News Contributor. Wilf’s last day on “Closing Bell” will be February 16th.
Wilf joined us in 2014 as Co-Anchor of “Worldwide Exchange” in London and moved to the U.S. the following year when the program began broadcasting from our Global Headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, N.J. He went from kicking off viewers’ mornings on “Worldwide Exchange” to taking them through the final trading hour on “Closing Bell” from the New York Stock Exchange alongside his on-air partner, Sara Eisen.
Throughout his CNBC career, Wilf routinely sat down with the biggest names in banking, business, politics and pop culture — asking them tough questions that consistently generated newsworthy headlines.
We are grateful for Wilf’s expertise and are delighted he’ll still appear on our screens, albeit from across the pond.
We will be announcing our plans for “Closing Bell” and banks coverage in the upcoming weeks, but in the meantime, please join me in wishing Wilf the very best.
