Broadcast from the CNBC London studio, and airing from 4-6amET weekdays, the show aims to be the “essential business and investment news from the Asian, EMEA and American markets.”
Frost, a former fund manager, is new to CNBC. He’s chosen journalism, the career of his late father, Sir David Frost, who died a year ago Sunday. Frost graduated from Oxford with a degree in Politics, Philosophy & Economics and worked for five years at an investment house. Seema Mody has been a reporter with CNBC in New York since 2011. She was previously an anchor and reporter at CNBC-TV18 in Mumbai where she co-anchored “Power Breakfast” and “After the Bell.”
“The ensemble format, with personalities representing rich and diverse experiences, will guide our investor audience through the myriad news stories that break and develop each business day in markets all over the world,” says CNBC SVP & Editor-in-Chief, Nikhil Deogun. “The show provides our viewers with a curated selection of the events that most affect their investment decisions.”
Frost joins Monday. Mody will join in mid-September.
