Business and financial news network, CNBC, has broadcast live from its new Middle East headquarters in Abu Dhabi for the first time today.
The new studios, based within Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) will act as CNBC’s hub in the Middle East and the broadcaster will use the new facility to deliver business news programming from across the region.
“CNBC broadcasts daily from the network’s international headquarters in New York, London and Singapore,” said John Casey, CNBC’s senior vice-president of international news and programming.
“With the addition of our new Middle East Headquarters at ADGM, we plan to connect Abu Dhabi to the world’s financial capitals.”
CNBC International Middle East anchor, Hadley Gamble, said: “We’ve been reporting the Middle East business story to CNBC’s elite global audience for years. 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.”
