13 years to the day after joining CNBC, Michelle Caruso-Cabrera is taking on a new role with the NBCU business channel: Chief International Correspondent.
Caruso-Cabrera joined CNBC from WTSP-TV in Tampa/St. Pete where she was a general assignement reporter. Over the past 13 years she has anchored shows — most recently as co-co-anchor on “Power Lunch” — and reported from Europe, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East. Last month she was in Athens reporting on the economic situation there. And last week, when she returned from Greece, Andrew Ross Sorkin hinted at her new role: “I’m joined by the one and only Michelle Caruso-Cabrera who will be talking a lot about what is going on in Europe.”
When not covering her main beat, Caruso-Cabrera will be anchoring and reporting across CNBC’s Business Day programming.
Not only is this a new role for Caruso-Cabrera, it’s a new job title at CNBC. In a memo to staff obtained by TVNewser, Nik Deogun, SVP and EIC of Business News says, the job “requires guts and discretion, a sense for storytelling and, at times, a sense of humor. Michelle has all those qualities, and more.”
