Robert Wolf

Reuters TV, the wire company’s video wing, is launching a new program hosted by outgoing UBS executive Robert Wolf, who the New York Times recently called President Obama’s “favorite banker.”

The series, “Impact Players,” will debut in September right around the Democratic National Convention, and feature Wolf interviewing policy makers and financial experts, as well as guests from the world of entertainment and sports.

Mark White, the former EP of Bloomberg TV’s morning programs, will produce the series, which will live at the Reuters TV YouTube Channel.

Matthews Senate Run Talk Continues

matthews_10-22.jpgSo, will MSNBC’s Chris Matthews be moving from the anchor chair to the political arena? The question has certainly been asked before (in February, and April, and May, and August…), but there appears to be new details as this election winds down.

The New York Times’ Bill Carter writes on The Caucus blog about a dinner last week between Matthews and one of Sen. Barack Obama‘s biggest fundraisers, UBS president Robert Wolf.

Said Matthews of the dinner: “Bob is a wonderful guy, and he told me we were going to talk about the political year and business and nothing about any election prospects.”

Wolf said, “It came up, but when you have 12 guys at a dinner you move from topic to topic.”

Once the election ends in two weeks, the Senate talk may pick up. TVNewser has learned that Democratic donors have received exploratory calls regarding a possible foray into politics for Matthews.
