Bloomberg Radio also plans for programming changes to “Sound On,” “Bloomberg Markets,” and “Bloomberg Businessweek”
New York, March 1, 2023 — Bloomberg Television today announced an expansion to “Wall Street Week,” as well as key changes to its flagship daily technology and politics shows.
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 6pm ET. 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 5pm 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 12pm ET hour, allowing BTV 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 to the BTV lineup will be effective on March 13.
Key details for each show:
- “Wall Street Week”, one of the most popular programs in the history of business television, debuted in 1970 with Louis Rukeyser in the anchor seat. Bloomberg’s “Wall Street Week” targets sophisticated investors with news veteran David Westin interviewing top names in finance and economics to discuss the week’s biggest stories. The daily segments will feature a rotating panel of influential voices and thought leaders.
- “Balance of Power” delivers news and analysis at the intersection of politics and business live from Bloomberg’s recently renovated studio in Washington, leveraging Bloomberg’s robust reporting and analysis in the capital city. In addition to co-hosting Balance of Power, Joe Mathieu will also host an extra hour of his Bloomberg Radio Show “Sound On” daily from 1-3pm ET (this change begins on March 6).
- “Bloomberg Technology” will move into the 12pm ET hour, allowing BTV to capture more of the urgency of market-moving tech news in real time. The show will drive forward its digital presence with innovative social media engagement and a deep commitment to diversity of thought. Caroline Hyde and Ed Ludlow will co-host the only daily network technology show from New York and San Francisco, respectively.
“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. “The change in lineup also gives our on-air contributors a chance to showcase their content strength and dig deeper on coverage.”
In addition to the changes on BTV, Bloomberg Radio will roll out programming changes to its “Bloomberg Markets” program, which will air from 10am -1pm ET. “Sound On” will air from 1pm – 3pm ET, and “Bloomberg Businessweek” will air from 3pm – 6pm ET, effective March 6th.
