Fast Chat: Nicole Lapin

Anchor discusses her CNBC departure and free agent future

Nicole Lapin left a plush gig as anchor of the CNBC program Worldwide Exchange last week, in part to start her own multimedia production company aimed at bringing her unique brand of business news to a wider (and younger) audience. While Lapin says her departure from CNBC was perfectly amicable, the decision to leave was a surprising one, given how quickly her star seemed to have been rising at the network. Adweek caught up with Lapin by phone to find out more about the move.
