Bloomberg signs deals for Quicktake shows
Bloomberg Media is turning to some notable public figures to lead the new primetime lineup for Quicktake, the company’s streaming news service, reports Alex Weprin of The Hollywood Reporter.
Weprin reports, “NBA all star Chris Paul, The Business of Fashion founder and CEO Imran Amed and NYU professor, author and podcaster Scott Galloway will each host programs for Quicktake starting later this year. The London-based Bloomberg host and editor-at-large Francine Lacqua will also launch a show for the streaming service.
“The new primetime shows will complement a live dayside lineup led by correspondents and anchors Scarlet Fu, Jason Kelly, Mady Mills, Kurumi Mori, Tim Stenovec, Ashlee Vance, and Jennifer Zabasajja. The company plans to detail its new programing slate at an upfront presentation for advertisers later this month.
“Bloomberg relaunched Quicktake late last year, with the goal of ‘creating in some ways the first post-COVID business network, a brand that is designed to explain and chronicle this new business world that we are all living in,’ Bloomberg Media CEO Justin Smith told The Hollywood Reporter at the time.”
