Bloomberg Quicktake is launching a new half hour weekly show on Thursday called “Emma Barnett Meets…”

The show will be hosted by award-winning British broadcaster and journalist Emma Barnett and features conversations with leaders in their fields who are advancing and reshaping the global debate.

“I am greatly looking forward to bringing this program to audiences around the world,” said Barnett in a statement. “My guests are those you want to hear more from – away from soundbites and short clips. Here’s to many surprising and memorable conversations throughout 2022 – at a time when we arguably need our horizons expanded more than ever.”

The half hour show will air on Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on the Bloomberg Quicktake streaming network and on-demand. The show will be broadcast from a newly designed studio space located within Bloomberg’s European headquarters in London.

Barnett was recently been named Interviewer of the Year at the prestigious 2021 British Journalism Awards.

She is the current host of the world’s longest running women’s program, “Woman’s Hour” on BBC Radio 4 and is a regular presenter of the current affairs program “Newsnight” on BBC Two. She is known for her exclusive, personal, and journalistic interviews.
