New studio located at Singapore's financial market core to support SGX as Asian gateway.
CNBC, First in Business Worldwide, and Singapore Exchange (SGX) jointly announce the official launch of CNBC’s new primary studio facility at SGX. The new studio began operations on the second floor of SGX Centre 1 in Shenton Way, the heart of Singapore’s financial district. To coincide with the unveiling of the new studio, CNBC Asia is introducing a new morning programming line-up, according to an SGX report.
“Business news is going through an era of unprecedented importance and complexity, so it's important we innovate our story-telling capabilities to continue delivering clear, real-time coverage,” said John Casey, Vice President of News and Programming, CNBC Asia Pacific. “That's what this move is about. The state-of-the-art studio we've created to broadcast live from SGX not only enhances our ability for dynamic discussion and instant analysis, it also incorporates exciting new tools that will enable us to make sense of even the most complex stories.”
The new look will include visual enhancements such as touch screens, video walls and tickers providing real-time market data that will frame the new studio space at SGX.
Along with the new studio comes an enhanced line-up which includes an earlier and more dynamic three-hour Squawk Box Asia from 6am, a brand new one-hour programme, The Call, an updated two-hour programme, Cash Flow from Australia and a fresh approach to Capital Connection with the introduction of a new bureau in Bahrain.
Satpal Brainch, President and Managing Director, CNBC Asia Pacific said, “For over two decades, CNBC globally has been at the forefront of providing accurate and actionable financial news and information. Our investment in a new studio along with our partnership with Singapore Exchange not only strengthens our global identity, but enhances our ability to provide the best viewing experience for our audience while reinforcing our commitment to the region.”
Mr. Magnus Bocker, CEO of SGX said, “We are pleased to welcome CNBC to SGX. The new studio is perfectly positioned at the core of Singapore's financial market. Reaching out to the global business community in every possible financial market, the presence of CNBC here at SGX supports our position as the Asian gateway with a global reach.”
