CNBC Adds ‘Squawk Alley’ to Daytime Lineup

cnbcCNBC is launching “Squawk Alley,” a new weekday show that will “focus on the intersection of Wall Street and technology.” Beginning Monday, the show will air at 11amET, replacing the third hour of “Squawk on the Street.”

“Squawk Alley will be a destination for new ideas and new technologies as well as for breaking news and analysis on the titans of the technology industry. As always, the discussion will take place through the classic CNBC prism of money and investing,” CNBC senior vice president and editor-in-chief Nik Deogun wrote in a note to CNBC staff this morning.

Carl Quintanilla will anchor “Squawk Alley” from the New York Stock Exchange. He will be joined by an ensemble including Jon Fortt, CNBC’s on-air tech editor, and Kayla Tausche. Todd Bonin, the executive producer of “Squawk on the Street,” will also oversee “Squawk Alley.”

Deogun also announced that Sara Eisen, a frequent contributor to “Squawk on the Street,” has been promoted to the anchor of the 10amET hour.
