London — Bloomberg Television today announces Guy Johnson is to join the network as its new London-based anchor.
Prior to joining Bloomberg, Johnson spent the last 14 years as a lead presenter at CNBC Europe, most recently anchoring “European Closing Bell”. Earlier in his career he also held positions at ITN (Channel 5) and Financial Times Television reporting on global financial and business activity.
Malcolm Fried, head of Bloomberg Television in Europe says: “Guy has a great deal of relevant experience and is a strong addition to the Bloomberg Television presenting team here in Europe. He’s covered many major global economic and corporate events, interviewed countless political and business leaders and his experience of covering the rapidly moving developments in the eurozone will enhance our current output.”
Guy Johnson adds: “At a time of such extraordinary tension in the global economy, my move to Bloomberg is an incredible opportunity. Bloomberg Television’s multiple media platforms represent a real advantage as my colleagues and I continue to report from the forefront of the eurozone crisis. I eagerly look forward to the challenge of making sense of this story for the millions of viewers that tune in every day.”
Johnson will officially begin his presenting duties on 1 April 2012.
