CNBC UNVEILS NEW DUBAI STUDIOS AT NASDAQ MARKET SITE
NEW STUDIOS OPENED IN THE HEART OF DUBAI INTL. FINANCIAL CENTRE
CNBC, the US-based business and financial news network, has unveiled its new studios at the heart of the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC). CNBC will use the new facility, based within Nasdaq Dubai’s Market Site, to deliver a deeper focus on the Middle East business story.
Earlier this year, CNBC opened its Middle East headquarters in Abu Dhabi at Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) and has since broadcast Capital Connection from the facility, fronted by Hadley Gamble and Nancy Hungerford. Television output from CNBC’s Dubai studio will now feed into Capital Connection and across CNBC’s headquarters around the world.
Spearheading coverage from the new studio will be newly appointed Dubai correspondent, Dan Murphy, who relocates from the CNBC’s Singapore office, where he regularly fronted CNBC’s business day programming.
Murphy said: “We’re going to be at the epicentre of Dubai’s business community telling the dynamic Middle East business story to our global audience.” CNBC has also appointed a number of production, technical operations and digital staff at the new Dubai studios.
