CNBC announced Thursday that two new anchors will join incumbent Julia Chatterley as hosts of daily global business show “Worldwide Exchange.”

Wilfred Frost will make his on-air debut on Sept. 1, while Seema Mody will complete the new three-anchor line-up from the middle of the month.

“The ensemble format, with personalities representing rich and diverse experiences, will guide our investor audience through the myriad news stories that break and develop each business day in markets all over the world,” said senior vice president and editor in chief Nikhil Deogun in a statement. “The show provides our viewers with a curated selection of the events that most affect their investment decisions.”

Broadcast from the CNBC London studio, the show includes business and investment news from the Asian, EMEA and American markets and involves CNBC reporters around the globe.

Frost has been a fund manager in the City of London. Having graduated from Oxford University with a degree in politics, philosophy and economics, he worked for five years with an investment house, only recently deciding to follow his late father into journalism.

Mody has been a reporter with CNBC in New York since 2011, focusing on stories that impact Wall Street and tracking the tech and IPO market from the NASDAQ exchange. She was previously an anchor and reporter at CNBC-TV18 in Mumbai, India, where she co-anchored two shows, “Power Breakfast” and “After the Bell,” at the height of the country’s economic boom.
