CNBC announced Monday the expansion of its Middle East operations with a new studio set to open in October at Nasdaq Dubai.
The new studio will be at MarketSite, part of Nasdaq Dubai’s new offices in the Dubai International Financial Centre.
CNBC currently broadcasts its morning show “Capital Connection,” hosted by anchor Hadley Gamble, from its headquarters at Abu Dhabi Global Market. The network’s new Dubai studio will work in concert with programming across Abu Dhabi, Singapore and London.
“Nasdaq Dubai is at the epicenter of Dubai’s business community making it the ideal location to deepen our focus on telling the regional business story to our global audience,” said KC Suillivan, president and managing director of CNBC International, in a statement. “This new studio will quickly become an integral part of our daily business news programming around the word.”
