New England Cable News to end “This Week in Business”

Doug Banks, the executive editor of the Boston Business Journal, writes about the end of “This Week in Business,” a Sunday television show on New England Cable News.

Banks writes, “For 18 years, New England Cable News has aired a half-hour Sunday news program focused on the business called This Week in Business, offering three segments featuring business leaders, executives and, in the final “block,” a local business journalist.

“Most weeks, either The Boston Globe’s Shirley Leung or I would appear in that third slot, known as the ‘C Block,’ and pre-Covid, once a month, Shirley and I would join anchor Brian Burnell (or Mike Nikitas before him) for the entire half hour, discussing and analyzing the week’s business news. But all good things must come to an end, and that’s the case this Sunday morning for This Week in Business: Sunday will be its last show. Going forward, business news will be folded into regular newscasts and programming at both NECN and NBC10 Boston.

“Behind the scenes of it all has been producer Mimi Wishner Segel, who is an absolute pleasure to work with. She will be joining the NBC10 Boston special projects team.”
