Trish Regan Joins Bloomberg TV
NEW YORK – Bloomberg TV has signed former CBS News and CNBC correspondent Trish Regan. The announcement was made Monday by Andrew Morse, head of Bloomberg Television in the U.S. Regan exited CNBC last March; she hosted The Call at the NBCUniversal-owned business news network.
Beginning Jan. 9, Regan will co-anchor Bloomberg TV’s afternoon market block Street Smart from 3-5 p.m. She’ll also anchor primetime specials and contribute to the network’s 2012 election coverage.
"Trish is an accomplished broadcast journalist and skilled reporter who has covered some of the most important global economic stories of our time," said Morse in a statement. "She'll play a key role on our Bloomberg team as we move forward with our goal of becoming the most influential business and financial news network."
Bloomberg TV is in 67 million U.S. homes (and nearly 300 million worldwide). The TV arm of the Bloomberg empire - which also includes Bloomberg.com, Bloomberg Markets and Bloomberg Radio - has continued to beef up its operations. Last May, Bloomberg TV rolled out in HD on several providers including Comcast, Time Warner and Dish. The network has also been in an ongoing dispute for a more competitive channel position with Comcast.
Regan is repped by Octagon.
