Karen Tso, currently an anchor for CNBC in Singapore, is moving to its London office in January.

Tso currently co-anchors CNBC Asia’s flagship program “Squawk Box Asia” and “The Call.”   In London, Tso will work across CNBC’s business day programming in Europe, the Middle East and Africa and will also provide reports and analysis into CNBC and MSNBC in the United States.

“Karen has been an integral part of the CNBC team for the last four years both in our Sydney office and at our regional Asia Pacific headquarters in Singapore,” said John Casey, CNBC’s vice president of international news & programming, in a statement. “She will be an excellent addition to an already powerful roster of journalists in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.”

With more than 10 years of experience, Tso joined CNBC from the Nine Network in Australia, where she presented business and finance stories for the country’s top rating evening bulletin “National Nine News” and other network programs including “Business Sunday,” “The Today Show,” “Nightline” and “My Home Property.”  Tso also anchored the evening program “Sky Business Report” for Sky News, which was affiliated to Nine Network.

Prior to Nine, Tso was a key player in finance coverage for Australian public broadcaster ABC.  Tso anchored the first live nightly finance segment on flagship news and current affairs program “Lateline” and pioneered live breaking stock market coverage on ABC’s “Midday News and Business,” and ABC’s Asia Pacific service, ASPAC.
