Bloomberg Television announced Wednesday an expansion to “Wall Street Week” as well as key changes to its flagship daily technology and politics shows.
“This overall shift in timing will help us better serve our viewers with real time, breaking market news coverage when it matters the most,” says Julie Alnwick McHale, global head of Bloomberg Television, in a statement. “The change in lineup also gives our on-air contributors a chance to showcase their content strength and dig deeper on coverage.”
David Westin, host of “Wall Street Week” since its relaunch three years ago, will now also anchor daily segments tied to the program, featuring conversations with influential voices. The contributions will highlight original content from each week’s coming episode, which airs Friday at 6 p.m.
As part of these moves, Westin will step away from his role as host of the politics-focused “Balance of Power.”
“Balance of Power ” will now air at 5 p.m. ET daily and the program will move to Washington from New York. It will include more original reporting and roundtable conversations led by correspondents Annmarie Hordern and Joe Mathieu.
The program also will feature Kailey Leinz, who recently relocated to Bloomberg’s Washington bureau to focus on reporting around financial regulation coverage.
“Bloomberg Technology” will move into the noon hour, allowing it to capture more of the urgency of market-moving technology news in real time. Caroline Hyde and Ed Ludlow will continue to co-host the show from New York and San Francisco, respectively.
All changes will be effective on March 13.
