We stopped in to CNBC Global Headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, NJ this afternoon as crews prepare to cover tonight’s election returns.
“In an election where the economy is a big story, if not the big story, we are a logical place turn turn, because that’s all we do,” says CNBC senior VP Jonathan Wald.
CNBC’s Election Night programming begins at 7pmET with anchors Mark Haines and Burnett. Dylan Ratigan and Maria Bartiromo pick up coverage at 8pm followed by Carl Quintanilla and Bartiromo at 9, with Michelle Caruso-Cabrera picking up at 10.
So, what about after the election? How will CNBC hold on to those viewers? Wald talks about that, after the jump. First, Sandy Cannold, EP of Squawk on the Street as well as the prime time election special, gives us a tour of the studio.
