Business Nets Plan Special Coverage of Facebook IPO

The business networks are gearing up for tomorrow’s Facebook IPO, which begins trading on the NASDAQ when the markets open tomorrow morning.

Bloomberg TV is kicking off coverage at 5pmET today with “Facebook: The Public Network,” a live three-hour special anchored by Emily Chang and Cory Johnson in San Francisco, Betty Liu in New York and Jon Erlichman at Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park, CA. At 8pmET, Matt Miller will anchor a live one-hour special, followed by an updated version of Bloomberg’s “Game Changers” on Mark Zuckerberg at 9pmET.

CNBC devoted the 1pmET hour this afternoon to the IPO with a special anchored by Carl Quintanilla. He and Julia Boorstin will also report from Facebook’s headquarters tomorrow. Tomorrow morning, CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street” will broadcast from the NASDAQ, where Facebook will be trading, instead of their usual perch at the NYSE.

On Fox Business Network, Stuart Varney will host a special “Varney & Co.” tomorrow morning to cover the market open and the IPO launch. Shibani Joshi will be live from Facebook’s headquarters and Lauren Simonetti will be at the NASDAQ.
