Sue HereraCNBC senior vice president and editor in chief Nik Deogun sent out the following announcement on Friday:

Breaking news has always been a hallmark of CNBC’s real-time coverage. To further bolster our efforts, I am excited to announce that Sue Herera has been named CNBC’s Breaking News Anchor.  In this newly created role, Sue will provide regular news updates throughout CNBC’s Business Day programming in addition to serving as the network’s lead anchor for breaking news stories.  With her 25-plus years of experience as a reporter and anchor, Sue has the authority and credibility viewers crave in moments of breaking news.

As previously announced, Sue recently joined Tyler Mathisen as co-anchor of “Nightly Business Report,” the longest running business news program on television.

In addition, “Power Lunch” will expand to two hours (M-F, 1PM-3PM ET).  The program will now be anchored by Tyler Mathisen, Mandy Drury and Brian Sullivan from CNBC’s Global Headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, NJ, with Melissa Lee providing daily contributions from the NASDAQ MarketSite’s new studio. “Power Lunch” will continue to focus on the big market-moving stories of the day with coverage from CNBC’s Post 9 position on the NYSE floor and from our bureaus around the world. It will showcase the best stories of the day from our roster of top-notch digital and television journalists.  Jason Gewirtz is the executive producer for “Power Lunch.”

These changes will be effective Monday, February 9.

I want to thank everyone for their hard work and continued dedication.
