New Look, New Editorial Focus, New San Francisco Bureau
CNN Business launched today with a new site, design, editorial focus and San Francisco bureau in our mission to chronicle the biggest business story of our time – the digital transformation of business disrupting every corner of the global economy.
From retail to media to energy and everything in between, technology has changed business as we knew it. Through exclusive interviews and breaking news, new franchises and verticals, and digital video including an expanded suite of live streaming content, CNN Business covers the transformation underway in our economy and your investments. With a wide range of news, analysis, market data and opinion, CNN Business is designed to appeal to those who want to learn about, profit from and lead business.
“To understand business in 2018, we have to recognise that every company is now a technology company,” said Vice President and General Manager of CNN Business, Jason Farkas, “At CNN Business, we’re living the story we’re reporting – and transforming how we will cover the future.”
Adding to a suite of bureaus in New York, Washington, Hong Kong, London, UAE and India with deep expertise in global business including companies, markets, tech, and the best media team in the business, a new San Francisco location is now open with reporters covering big tech, startups, venture capital, and cryptocurrency.
CNN Business will be fully integrated across CNN and CNN International on-air programming, with branded segments fronted by anchor Julia Chatterley, anchor Christine Romans, anchor and chief media correspondent Brian Stelter, anchor, correspondent and CNN Business editor-at-large Richard Quest, and other correspondents and reporters beginning on October 4, 2018. There will also be close collaboration and programming initiatives that utilise the wide reach and expertise of CNN Business and CNN International’s business shows, including Quest Means Business, First Move with Julia Chatterley, The Express, and CNN Marketplace Africa.
Two new verticals within CNN Business tackle the companies, personalities, and innovations that are driving business forward:
- Perspectives: Tapping the brightest minds and biggest names in tech and finance, thought leaders in global business like Melinda Gates, Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi, Eurasia Group’s Ian Bremmer, and Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman share their insights on the future and opinions on the present.

This annual list of influencers will be revealed over the course of a month-long multiplatform experience.
