Business Networks Head To Davos For World Economic Forum

This week the World Economic Forum is once again  being held in the sleepy ski town of Davos, Switzerland, and the business networks are on the scene to try and score chats with market shakers and world leaders.

CNBC has anchors Maria Bartiromo and Andrew Ross Sorkin in Davos, along with senior economics reporter Steve Liesman, Sorkin will co-anchor “Squawk Box” from Davos Wednesday-Friday, while Bartiromo and Liesman will be appearing on various programs throughout the week.

Fox Business Network has Liz Claman in Davos, with coverage kicking off Wednesday at 11 AM, and continuing through Friday.

Bloomberg TV has Erik Schatzker, Tom Keene and Francine Lacqua at the Forum, along with reporter Olivia Sterns. BTV coverage starts at 1 AM ET (6 AM GMT) tomorrow, and continues through Friday. Lacqua will anchor “On the Move,” Keene will anchor “Bloomberg Surveillance” and Schatzker will co-anchor “Market Makers” from Davos.

Bloomberg Launches New Program; New Faces Coming Too

Lacqua_9-1.jpgBloomberg TV recently launched a new program, “On The Move with Francine Lacqua,” mostly covering the European market openings and financial news out of Asia. “On the Move” debuted on August 25th, but Bloomberg viewers in the U.S. might have missed it because Lacqua appears in the middle of the night.

The program, which airs at 3am our time, broadcasts out of the UK and is primarily targeted toward the network’s international audience.

Bloomberg TV’s new strategy appears to involve getting more aggressive overseas and TVNewser hears that Bloomberg will be announcing the addition of new broadcast talent in Asia and Europe in the coming weeks.
