Marketplace and BBC World Service announced Tuesday a new daily global business broadcast, “Marketplace Morning Report” from BBC World Service.
The new broadcast launches Tuesday, Sept. 5 on U.S. public radio stations nationwide. The program will be hosted live from London by the BBC’s Anu Anand, who has more than two decades of experience as a global journalist.
“There are large scale shifts underway in the global economy, and our expanded relationship with the BBC will provide millions of public radio listeners in the U.S. with a fresh global perspective to start their day,” said Deborah Clark, senior vice president and general manager, “Marketplace,” in a statement. “We see this collaboration as an important element in realizing our goal to increase the economic intelligence of all Americans by applying global context and tying it together for U.S. audiences.”
Many thanks for the tip, Howard! Marketplace with Kai Ryssdal is one of my favorite radio broadcasts–I rarely miss it. I’m looking forward to the new Marketplace Morning Report collaboration.
