January 13, 2010

Nicole Lapin has been named an anchor on CNBC’s “Worldwide Exchange” based in the United States, effective mid-January.

CNBC’s “Worldwide Exchange,” which airs from 4 a.m. to 6 a.m. during the week,  is the first worldwide daily business news program with anchors in the U.S., Europe and Asia.

Each weekday Ross Westgate in London and Christine Tan in Singapore and Lapin in the U.S. cover local stories with global significance. “Worldwide Exchange” is the network’s most distributed show, simultaneously available in more than 100 countries across the globe.

“Nicole’s experience and talent make her a great addition to CNBC,” said Jeremy Pink, senior vice president business news, in a statement. “‘Worldwide Exchange’ is an integral part of CNBC’s global coverage, and Nicole will bring a fresh perspective on business news.”

Previously, Lapin was an anchor at CNN based in Atlanta where she reported breaking news coverage on prominent national and international stories including the Virginia Tech shootings, the Israel-Hezbollah conflict, the Mumbai terror attacks, the Hudson River plane crash and the 2008 presidential election. Lapin also interviewed CEOs, celebrities and politicians including an extended sit-down interview with California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in the thick of the state’s 2009 budget crisis. Additionally, Lapin wrote a weekly column for CNN.com.

Prior to joining CNN, Lapin worked as a business and technology reporter for First Business Network on the floor of the major stock exchanges in Chicago. Lapin began her career as a general assignment and investigative reporter at local CBS affiliates in Palm Springs, Calif., Lexington, Ky., and Sioux Falls, S.D.
