Yahoo Finance and CNBC launch new show
Yahoo Finance and CNBC are premiering the first two episodes of a new show called “Big Data Download” on Wednesday.
The show is hosted by CNBC’s Courtney Reagan and will regularly feature Yahoo Finance’s editor-in-chief Aaron Task, senior columnist Michael Santoli and co-host of “The Daily Ticker” Lauren Lyster.
“Big Data Download” is a daily digital program that taps into the big data revolution to deliver information to everyday investors and business decision makers. The show, which will air twice each day, will draw upon sources including Yahoo search data, social sentiment and investing algorithms created exclusively for this program from the Yahoo Labs team.
“Big Data Download” airs Monday through Friday, with original episodes at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. ET.
The inaugural episode of “Big Data Download” examines whether the housing market is really in recovery by looking at both housing stocks and Yahoo! Search data. In the second episode, “Big Data Download” drills into gas prices. “Big Data Download” explores oil, gas, distillate inventory numbers to shed light on where prices should be and which companies will get a lift when the price goes up.
