We are pleased to announce the newest members of the BusinessWeek (MHP ) family: The anchors, producers, and staff of BusinessWeek TV. Our television team produces a syndicated weekend show, BusinessWeek MoneyTalks, anchored by Jill Bennett and Brad Holbrook, plus business reports for local stations. In July, The McGraw-Hill Companies (MHP ), BusinessWeek's parent, acquired the remaining equity interest in the show. Since then we've integrated an entire television production operation into our New York editorial offices. We've also brought Glen Rochkind aboard as executive producer. Glen has 20 years of television production experience, most recently at CNBC.
From our very first show in October, 2001, the goal of BusinessWeek TV has been the same: to get ahead of the week's business events with a focus on financial advice for the consumer. BusinessWeek TV draws on the expertise of our 230-member BusinessWeek editorial staff, the editors of BusinessWeek Online, and the resources of our sister McGraw-Hill company, Standard & Poor's. Each week, subjects range from close to home (work and family, health, and housing) and the practical (travel, cars, shopping, and saving for college) to investing (mutual funds, tax law changes, and interest rates) and the big picture (jobs, the markets, oil prices, the election, the economy, and homeland security). BusinessWeek reporters make frequent appearances.
Best of all, BusinessWeek TV adds to our magazine, online, and radio platforms to provide you with timely analysis and useful information wherever you may be. Glen, Jill, Brad, and team will be rolling out improvements in coming months. As we begin our fourth season, you can catch BusinessWeek TV on 226 stations nationwide -- check your local weekend TV listings or BusinessWeekTV.com for times.
We hope you tune in.
