Investment advisor TD Ameritrade is launching a financial news network featuring former Bloomberg journalist Oliver Renick.
TD Ameritrade Network is available for free and is starting with four hours of live original programming. It will expand to six hours next month.
Currently, programming begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 12:30 p.m. Renick hosts a two-hour show beginning at 9 a.m. called “Morning Trade Live.”
Renick had been at Bloomberg since June 2014, co-anchoring on Bloomberg Television and writing for Bloomberg News about the stock market.
“With more than 10 million client accounts we have incredible insight into retail investors and what kind of content they’re craving,” said Steve Quirk, executive vice president of trading and education for TD Ameritrade, in a statement. “The TD Ameritrade Network is exactly what the new generation of cord-cutting investors is looking for; real-time market news and investor education that can be viewed anywhere, anytime, on any device – for free.”
Also appearing on the network are TD Ameritrade market commentators Victor Jones and JJ Kinahan and former president of Tradersaudio.com Ben Lichtenstein.
Lichtenstein will host a 30-minute show beginning at 8:30 a.m.
