“Andrew is one of the most respected interviewers in the nation. His renowned expertise on all-things business and policy as well as his extraordinary talent to tell compelling stories make him the perfect addition to NBC News Now’s expanding slate of original journalism,” Oppenheim said in a statement. “We’re excited to showcase his distinctive insight and reporting, seen every morning on CNBC, to our streaming platform that represents the best of NBC News.”
