Bloomberg’s TV and radio operations will debut a new edition of the venerable financial-discussion program, this time titled “Bloomberg Wall Street Week,” tonight, January 10, at 6 p.m. eastern. David Westin will anchor the weekly one-hour program, the result of a licensing agreement between Bloomberg and Maryland Public Television, which still holds rights to the property.
“The TV program airs at a time, at the end of the week, when people can come and hear about the two or three most interesting stories affecting business, finance and the economy, with perspective from leaders in the industry,” says Westin, in an interview. Bloomberg executives, he adds, feel that “this is something that is underserved, or unserved, right now.”
And like its predecessor, the show will have a rotating panel of influentials. Panelists regularly contributing to the program include: former Treasury Secretary Lawrence H. Summers
