Lisa Du of Business Insider reports that Kelly Evans, recently hired by CNBC from The Wall Street Journal, will be the new anchor for its “Worldwide Exchange” show.
Du writes, “Now, sources at CNBC have confirmed to Business Insider that Evans’s new gig in London will be hosting Worldwide Exchange—the global business-focused show that is broadcast on CNBC networks in Europe, Asia and the U.S.
“Evans will be co-hosting Worldwide Exchange with Ross Westgate, who previously anchored the show by himself. Westgate’s profile on CNBC already states that he will be co-hosting Worldwide Exchange with Evans.
“In addition, Worldwide Exchange will change formats and be broadcast from London between 4 am to 6 am EST, sources told Business Insider. Formerly, the show consisted of anchors pitching in from London, Singapore and CNBC’s Englewood Cliffs, NJ, headquarters.
“The move should be great for both Evans and CNBC, and guarantee Evans a lot more face recognition in global financial and media circles. CNBC currently reaches about 400 million homes worldwide, compared to its reach of about 95 million households in the U.S.”
