CNBC’s Amanda Drury Becoming U.S. Anchor

drury_4-26.jpgJust announced: CNBC Asia anchor Amanda Drury is joining the stateside CNBC network as a business day anchor. Drury will start May 10th, when she begins as a fill in for Melissa Francis on the “The Call” while she is out on maternity leave.

Drury was most recently based out of Sydney, Australia, her home country, where she anchored CNBC Asia Pacific’s “Squawk Box” and “Cash Flow.” Prior to that she’d been based out of Singapore for a number of years.

In recent months, Drury has made regular trips to the U.S. to fill-in as an anchor on a number of CNBC programs. During one of those stopovers in the fall, TVNewser caught up with her for a video interview about working in the United States. Check it out here.

More from CNBC after the jump. No word right now on what her role will be following her stint on “The Call.”

This morning on “Squawk Box,” CNBC’s Amanda Drury teased a segment about Bernie Madoff’s mansion that’s going on sale and said, “And another CNBC exclusive: inside Madoff’s mansion in Montauk. It’s for sale and we have exclusive video.” This graphic accompanied it.

Apparently, it was released to everyone for broadcast today. On a related note, maybe this will help Jonathan Silverman make a comeback.

While we were there, we got to sit down for a moment with CNBC Asia Pacific’s Amanda Drury who is in New York for a brief stint filling in on several CNBC shows until she returns to Sydney next month. This week, she was on “Power Lunch” (Mon-Tues) and “The Call” (Wed-Fri, 11amET). All next week, you can catch her on “Squawk Box” with Carl Quintanilla from 6-9amET. Drury normally hosts “Squawk Box” and “CNBC’s Cash Flow” on the overseas network and spent a number of years based in Singapore.

She spoke with us about her experience coming to New York and what she’s excited about covering while she’s stateside. It turns out, she also does a surprisingly solid Brooklyn accent.

Bonus: after the jump, you can see TVNewser playing with the sound-effects board on the “Mad Money” set. Boo-yah.
