Report: CNBC’s David Faber to Host Half Hour Daytime Show

Faber_4.17.jpgPage Six has a bit more on Business Insider’s story from earlier this month — that longtime CNBC correspondent David Faber is closer to getting his own daytime show.

Change is afoot at CNBC. We hear the cable network is cutting its two-hour “Power Lunch” show in half and will devote the leftover hour to a new show, “Strategy Session,” hosted by David Faber, and an expanded version of “Fast Money Halftime Report,” from 15 minutes to 30.

Faber’s filling of the Noon-12:30pmET slot would be his third go-round as an anchor on the business channel. The last two shows were met with little success. Faber hosted a program, “Bull Session,” from 6-7 PM. He also anchored the short-lived primetime magazine, “Business Nation.”

TVNewser hears Faber recently signed a new deal with CNBC, after being courted by a joint contract with Bloomberg and ABC News, so perhaps anchoring is one part of the new deal.
