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.

Sara Eisen, Justin Dial Leave Bloomberg TV

BLOOMBERG-tv-LOGOTVNewser has learned about a handful of notable departures from Bloomberg Television recently.

Justin Dial, who joined Bloomberg in 2011 as head of U.S. newsgathering, has joined Al Jazeera America as deputy head of newsgathering. In his new role, he will report to Marcy McGinnis, Al Jazeera America’s senior vice president of newsgathering.

Another recent departure from Bloomberg TV is Sara Eisen, who anchored “Bloomberg Surveillance” alongside Tom Keene. Eisen announced on Twitter she will join CNBC on December 16.

TVNewser hears there have been other departures from the network recently, including a show producer who is leaving for Fox Business and Chris Berend head of digital video, is joining CNN. Andrew Morse, who had been the head of U.S. television for Bloomberg left for CNN in August.

Under the leadership of newly-installed CEO Justin Smith, Bloomberg Media Group is the midst of a 100-day review as “a strategic planning exercise to map our future course,” according to AdWeek. Bloomberg Businessweek editor Josh Tyrangiel has temporarily moved to the TV side. And as TVSpy reported, the company is ending production of its local market reports, seen on nearly 200 stations across the country.

Margaret Brennan leaving Bloomberg TV as Net Shakes Up Mornings

Margaret Brennan, who has been with Bloomberg TV for nearly three years, is leaving the network, TVNewser has learned. Brennan joined Bloomberg from CNBC in 2009. Brennan’s departure, described as mutual, comes as the network plans changes to its morning lineup later this Spring.

Andrew Morse, head of U.S. TV for Bloomberg, says the changes are a continuation of Bloomberg’s “evolution into a digital, multi-platform news organization.” The changes have included a round of staff cuts as well as the posting of new positions, last month.

The programming shifts include a simulcast of Tom Keene‘s radio program “Surveillance” which airs from 6-8amET replacing “Inside Track” which was hosted by Erik Schatzker and Stephanie Ruhle.

“It’s not just doing TV on the radio,” Morse tells TVNewser, “but a true multi-media program.” The show will stream on Bloomberg.com and on the Bloomberg TV+ and Radio+ tablet apps. Keene will be joined by Sara Eisen, Scarlet Fu and Ken Prewitt.

Betty Liu will continue to anchor “In the Loop” from 8-10amET. Then, Schatzker and Ruhle will host a new show at 10am, replacing Brennan’s “In Business.”

In a Media Beat interview last summer, Brennan told us about her decision to leave CNBC for Bloomberg, and also hinted at a true passion: international reporting. Brennan’s final day hosting “In Business” is this Friday.

Keene’s NoonET program goes away and will be replaced by a what Morse calls a “high-profile ensemble cast” who will be assessing the market at Midday.

The Weekend Ticker: Eisen, Gregory, Wright

  • Bloomberg TV’s Sara Eisen talks to Wall Street Sector Selector about anchoring “Inside Track” from 6-8amET. “The goal is to talk about all the stories that you’re going to be hearing about all day long before they actually manifest themselves in the markets,” she says. “It’s a 6 to 8 am show so it’s just the perfect way to set up the day.”
  • After appearing on “The Tonight Show” two weeks ago, David Gregory turned the tables on Jay Leno for this week’s “Meet the Press” PRESS Pass. “There’s just so much more media now that you do,” Leno told Gregory on how his program has changed over the years. “You have to tweet out stuff, then you Instagram stuff, then you send out pictures. The show doesn’t just end anymore.”
  • Fox News’ Kelly Wright has been recognized by Morehouse College for his “Beyond the Dream” series. The school inducted him this year into the Martin Luther King, Jr. Board of Sponsors. “What it means for me to recieve this award is  just a fantastic feeling of appreciation, not only to Morehouse but to the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,” Wright said.
