Bloomberg Television today announced the debut of the network’s new television studio in Hong Kong, located in Cheung Kong Centre in the heart of Hong Kong’s business district. The new set, incorporating the latest in interactive technology, enables Bloomberg Television to provide even more fast-paced, reliable and accurate coverage of market-moving news from the pan-Asia region.
Susan Li, host of “First Up” (7-9am Hong Kong time) and Rishaad Salamat, host of “On the Move Asia” (9-11 am Hong Kong time), will work with Bloomberg’s team of Asia-based reporters to cover breaking news, interview top business and political leaders and provide in-depth reporting on major company news and world events. Bloomberg Television’s reporting team will also utilize a state-of-the-art touch screen, presenting images, video and live market data with the look and feel of today’s handheld devices. The set design incorporates skyline views of Hong Kong and increases interaction with the Bloomberg Television newsroom of over one hundred market experts and reporters.
“Bloomberg Television’s new set brings in the pace and energy of Hong Kong, one of the leading business centres for Asia and the world,” said Parry Ravindranathan, Business Head for Bloomberg Television in Asia. “Throughout the broadcast day, we’re delivering fast-paced, engaging news from around the world to help our viewers make better-informed decisions.”
