CNBC DROPS THE HAMMER ON TWO PROGRAMS

It was a good run while it lasted.

CNBC is boarding up the offices of two long-running programs at the end of the year.

“Nightly Business Report”, which began life 40 years ago as a local production of Miami’s WPBT (now South Florida PBS), was a pioneering effort to focus on business news.

CNBC acquired the program in 2013, the last in a series of ownership changes.

NBR is carried by 183 public television stations in all 50 states, reaching 96 percent of all U.S. households

CNBC anchors Bill Griffeth and Sue Herera currently co-anchor the business newscast.

“On the Money” is CNBC’s half-hour weekly interview program which airs weekends in national syndication.

CNBC’s production of the program will also stop at the conclusion of 2019.

“On the Money” at one time featured Maria Bartiromo as its principal anchor, which prompted a name change to “The Wall Street Journal Report with Maria Bartiromo.”

Becky Quick took over hosting duties for in 2014 once Bartiromo left CNBC for Fox Business and the program reverted to simply “On The Money.”.
