Business Networks Going All In on Markets Chaos

By Brian Flood 

Bloomberg, CNBC and Fox Busniess are all airing special coverage tonight after stock markets tumbled this afternoon.

CNBC will air a live, one-hour special, CNBC Special Report: Markets in Turmoil, at 7 p.m. ET from CNBC Global Headquarters. The special will be anchored by Carl Quintanilla and Becky Quick with Jim Cramer contributing.

“In some ways, China’s opening bell has become almost as important as our own. It makes sense that we give it the attention we do to our own — comprehensive, well-rounded coverage with a live component,” Quintanilla told TVNewser.


Fox Business Network will air a special two-hour edition of Lou Dobbs Tonight at 7 p.m. regarding the breaking market news. FBN went commercial free leading up to the market close today because of all the chaos.

Over on Bloomberg, a one-hour special report started at 5 p.m. ET hosted by Joe Weisenthal, Scarlet Fu, and Tom Keene. They are breaking down what we’ve seen in markets around the world and what to expect for tomorrow. Guests include Evercore ISI senior managing director Donald Straszheim and PIMCO evp Tony Crescenzi.
