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.

During today’s “Closing Bell,” Bartiromo is getting some well-wishes from her colleagues:

From Sharon Epperson: “Maria, I have to say in addition to all the contributions you’ve made to CNBC, I will most remember everything you’ve done to improve financial literacy for all ages, for everybody, outside of CNBC on your own time. I know you’ll continue to do and I really have to say, it’s been such a pleasure to work with you.”

Bertha Coombs: “I just want to say, it has been a privilege and a pleasure to be your colleague.”

Courtney Reagan: “Maria, good luck and we’ll miss you.”

Kayla Tausche: “Maria, back to you for the last time, and best wishes.”

In Covering ‘Occupy’ Protests, Confusion, Misinformation and Police

As we noted earlier, cable news channels and local TV have been busy covering the “Occupy Wall Street” protest here in New York City. Above, you can watch a report from Bloomberg’s Micha Rondeau from Wall Street. Rondeau filed a blog post about trying to get in a position to cover the event:

It was the crowd. Just like a crowd at a rock concert. I only saw one other reporter trying to do a live shot in that crowd.

At the NY Times, Brian Stelter writes about some apparent misinformation spread by WNYW anchor Greg Kelly (who happens to be the son of NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly):

TVNewsers Wear Purple To Show Their ‘Spirit’

People across the country today participated in “Spirit Day,” wearing purple as a sign of support for LGBT youth. The movement, started by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, counted several visible people as champions of the anti-bullying cause: morning anchors, evening anchors and cable anchors on several networks were color-coordinated today.

On the morning shows:

On ABC’s “Good Morning America,” George Stephanopoulos and Robin Roberts participated, as did Ann Curry and Al Roker on NBC’s “Today.” All four co-hosts on “The View” — Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Elisabeth Hasselbeck — were decked out in purple as well.
