CNBC’s New Middle East Hub Is Up and Running

By Chris Ariens 

CNBC unveiled its new Middle East Headquarters in Abu Dhabi today.

The hub, which is inside the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), will be the home of Capital Connection, which is co-anchored by Hadley Gamble in Abu Dhabi and Nancy Hungerford from the network’s Asia Headquarters in Singapore. That program does not air on the CNBC U.S. channel.

“We’ve been reporting the Middle East business story to CNBC’s elite global audience for years,” said Gamble. “The launch of our new home within ADGM starts a new chapter in our reporting from the region. These new state-of-the-art studios provide us with a fantastic platform to tell the global business story through a unique Middle East lens.”


“With the addition of our new Middle East Headquarters at ADGM, we plan to connect Abu Dhabi to the world’s financial capitals,” added John Casey, CNBC’s SVP of International News and Programming.

CNBC also plans to expand its feature franchise Access Middle East as well as its regional event coverage.
