CNBC’s Amanda Drury Makes US Stopover

By kevin Comment

This week, TVNewser visited CNBC’s world headquarters across the Hudson River in Englewood Cliffs, NJ (population: 5,322; multinational news organizations: 1).

While we were there, we got to sit down for a moment with CNBC Asia Pacific’s Amanda Drury who is in New York for a brief stint filling in on several CNBC shows until she returns to Sydney next month. This week, she was on “Power Lunch” (Mon-Tues) and “The Call” (Wed-Fri, 11amET). All next week, you can catch her on “Squawk Box” with Carl Quintanilla from 6-9amET. Drury normally hosts “Squawk Box” and “CNBC’s Cash Flow” on the overseas network and spent a number of years based in Singapore.

She spoke with us about her experience coming to New York and what she’s excited about covering while she’s stateside. It turns out, she also does a surprisingly solid Brooklyn accent.

Bonus: after the jump, you can see TVNewser playing with the sound-effects board on the “Mad Money” set. Boo-yah.
