Maryam Nemazee back on Sky News tonight doing the Midnight news slot perfect news story for her do with the Budget 2013 .Much better with Maryam Nemazee doing this kind news event on Sky News despite it being on so late .Perhaps she get more weekday slots on the twilight shifts and hopefully more shows to fill in for other anchors come the summer.
Just knew when this came around Maryam would be no where to be seen and stuck away on the graveyard shift. Hope your right about her filling in for anchors in the summer. But Sky News seem to be hanging on to everyone they have got and Anna Botting will probably be back soon too.

Still not watching the London bloomberg shows as the presentation is still just way too dull.

I see Ms Sterns is now based in New York as correspondent there for the Countdown programme despite saying on her twitter account she is still a London based correspondent and Flacqua despite her mentioning on her twitter she was going to New York on 4th March is not there and still presenting her usual output from London on BTV .
Kind of leaves you a little confused and perplexed as they are saying one thing or doing something on their twitter accounts but doing the complete opposite in regard to what they are doing regarding their anchoring and presenting duties on BTV .
Anybody know what is going on here ?
These are journalists and they are supposed to convey accurate and truthful and also reliable information if they cannot have the information they put on their twitter accounts relating to their anchoring and correspondent duties as it relates to BTV it makes them appear something other than what they are whether by accident or design .Which is rather unfortunate and rather sad to say the least.
Not too sure myself. Doesn't make much sense Olivia being over in NYC as correspondent for the Countdown with the 5 hr time zone difference. I know it's the city that never sleeps but she'd be better off staying in London.

I saw on my epg on my sat tv that Bloomberg tv had reshuffled some shows last week but this week on my epg on my sat tv they were back to normal again on a little confusing to say the least .
Also CNBC TV Europe has also reshuffled its morning shows around with the show presented by Kelly Evans now starting at 12noon instead of 09.00 .
Maryam Nemazee again is presenting and anchoring Sky Midnight News on week night/morning six hour graveyard shift just now Tuesday 26th March. looks like she is perhaps getting a regular week night slot to do apart from the weekend slot as well.Clearly she is Sky News's gain and Bloomberg tv loss after her axing in 2012 .Hope she gets a weekend daytime slot in the summer so I can see her at a more at a regular hour ..

I gather Bloomberg WEST is now going to be on twice a day on European tv schedules and Taking Stock is going to be on as well in the evening daily with Bloomberg Surv being cut back to a one hour programme along with Street Smart also losing a hour from its running time .If I am wrong I stand to be corrected and will be more than happy for someone to clarify this even further.With Bloomberg Game Changers getting the 0600 slot which is a complete waste of space space I wish BTV could show some backbone in London did a U-TURN and got this slot back for a London based live tv programme with Caroline Hyde the economist presenting it.At least it would then reduce the number of reruns of much repeated U.S programmes then at least at that time of the morning .
Amazing to think with Easter coming up this week how quickly BTV bosses in U.S have been mucking about with their schedule once again .After ruthlessly axing the number of programmes ,tv output and tv anchors in London in December 2012 .CNBC Europe tv will be have pleased with their antics and good fortune at the axing the tv anchors and programmes last year .Which gave them a free run in Europe without a serious challenge to them .

Caroline left Bloomberg too?

She hasn't been on for a few weeks.

Well she is still listed on her twitter account as being with them from her last entry 19/3/13 and is on there website as still being with them .They let go their other economist Linda Yueh before xmas so unless they have got another replacement lined up soon .I presume she is away on holiday and will be back next week .They are lets face it one or two tv anchors short for even presenting what remaining output they do have compared even with Hong Kong .People do go on hoiliday and tv anchors are like the rest of us and need breaks from time to time.Which begs the question who will come into to cover for them if anybody?
Olivia Sterns is now based in New York for the Countdown programme supposedly and if as you said Caroline Hyde has left to go eslewhere then good luck her she deserves it she is top class economist and presenter and will be a success anywhere she goes.So what would happen when Mark Barton goes on holiday as the Countdown programme is based around him as the sole tv anchor these days ?
Will Manus Lunny fill in or will Flacqua fill in back in her old job?
When Flacqua and Guy Johnson rotate and go on holiday who will fill in for them as well on The Pulse
?
This is all presuming the current staff stay in post and are not poached by other networks in the meantime of course in 2013 .If you or anyone else knows then please enlighten us it has been a rather stange period at BTV over the last four or five months to say the least.I cannot understand or make sense of it anymore as I said if you know or anybody else knows then please be my guest.Hopefully we will have at BTV some fresh intake of talent coming in to breathe some new life into it at some point in the shape of Sarah Firth ,Rachel Reilly or Sarah Jane Mee or Luisa Baldini before the start of summer .2013.So at least there is a viable alternative to CNBC Europe tv and CNN as well.

There is some fresh intake at last. Anna Edwards is moving to Bloomberg.

So if Mark Barton goes on holiday Anna will have probably started with Countdown by then.

Rachel Riley and Sarah Jane Mee? Don't think those two are business presenter material and Sarah Jane Mee is more of an expert on sport. Rachel is good with numbers but i can't see her leaving countdown. Luisa Baldini and Sarah Firth are more the investigative type of reporters more suited to BBC / Sky News. I still say they should go for RT's Katie Pilbeam to co-host The Pulse.

Interesting news. I think CNBC appears to be going downhill and Bloomberg is on the up and up. I hardly ever watch CNBC these days. Maybe I chose the wrong username

I've been saying that for ages. I also think Dylan Ratigan's departure in 2009 didn't help. The last time I watched any of CNBC's business shows was Tuesday morning when Doug Parker, the CEO of US Airways, was on US Squawk Box. That interview was worth listening to. I still watch the NBC Nighty News every night though.

The UK CNBC shows still look good to me. I watch Kelly Evans on Worldwide Exchange now as The Pulse has a very boring look to it since they got rid of Maryam. Also Anna Edwards started on Countdown this week but still no sign of Caroline Hyde.

Personally I do not like Kelly Evans on Worldwide Exchange. Looked to be she was parachuted in to keep the American viewers happy, as they don't like getting their news from foreigners!

Worldwide Exchange was much better in its original 3 centres format in my view!

Many thanks for your post I was little worried nobody else was going to bother to post something about BTV or cared about it which I am sure is not the case .Glad to see Anna Edwards going to BTV and Countdown after many speculative posts on the forum at last you have found the answer to who was going to be Linzie Janis replacement some three months after she left BTV .Mind you Anna Edwards had not long left CNBC to go to CNN and jump ship to go to BTV must be getting a big pay increase and good contract to take up this anchor role.She is a very good choice and am sure she will do a good job.Wish I had time to watch but too busy with my honours projects just now to watch it.Hopefully I will get a chance to in a few months time when my honours course projects are finished .All journalists shift and move around to do different areas from business to sport to news etc and people like Kate Silverton who is at the BBC News came from a non journalistic background that was the point I was trying to make .It is standard practice for tv reporters and presenters to move and switch around to different roles when switching between employers .The presenters mentioned had all done this in the past and will no doubt do this again in their industry .
Remember in the U.S they have tv anchors who been brought without any tv experience straight from Wall St onto BTV Stephanie Ruhle is one example .The only point I was making between her and Rachel Reilly was that she had worked in the city briefly but she had more experience as a tv presenter four years for a network to be exact than her as a example that was all .I hope Caroline Hyde if she has left BTV goes to another top tv job real soon doubt somehow she will going the BBC NEWS 24 and getting Stephanie Flanders job that would be real surprise if that were the case and Ms Flanders going in the opposite direction to BTV .Maybe she is going GMTV /Daybreak perhaps or ITV NEWS which would sound more plausible as Sky News ALREADY has Maryam Nemazee and Poppy Trowbridge .Have not seen Maryam Nemazee on Sky News this week yet though she is now listed on wiki something or other as being a freelance standin on their graveyard shift at weekends .Perhaps she may be also be doing other tv work elsewhere for another contractor on Channel 4 or Channel 5 hopefully as well real soon.

Nice to hear from someone with a different point of view please keep making posts to the forum as it is always interesting to find what other peoples opinions and views are about programmes and presenters even if they are different form other peoples it is the only way to learn about how other people think about other programmes and forum members views on it .I like Kelly Evans as a tv anchor but she is not Linzie Janis for sure who was in a completely different class for sure .

I forgot to point out Luisa Baldini was a very good news along with Louisa Preston ( who are both at the BBC now) as tv anchors on Five News for a number of years as well when ITN produced it and Sky as well .Sarah Jane Mee also is a freelance sport/ poltical and news anchor on Sky News .She presents the main news programmes as well on Sky News as well as a stand in and has done for some time now as well. Andrea Catherwood who was at BTV as tv anchor a few years ago had a simliar background as a tv newscaster at ITV News for some years before she went to BTV to work there as well for a purely financial news network as well.I like have different points of view please keep making posts and thanks for pointing out the one about Anna Edwards I did not see that one .Truthfully I watch more NTV and N24 for my news than UKTV the German blonde tv female presenters are quite professional and speak in a friendly informal to viewers that is easy to follow and understand .

Sarah Jane Mee is actually a freelance newscaster/ .sports caster and co-presents the political show Bolton and Co on Sky News she also often presents as a newscaster on Sky News different newscasts as well she has been doing this for sometime .She did radio shows and presented other tv programmes on ITV regional news as well in the past also.Luisa Baldini also anchored quite well Five News main newscasts in 2000s for quite a while along with Louisa Preston also both are now at BBC News .Andrea Catherwood when she was a anchor at Btv came from much the same background as them.She worked as a newscaster at ITV news channel for many years quite successfully before going ot BTV .Anyway nice to see you took the time to respond and take the time to post something even a different point of view which is good as it shows there are other people out there with other views and you can learn about what other people are saying and getting a better appreciation of what people think about BTV and other forum members opinions are .Thanks again for posting that info on Anna Edwards again I did not know that one even though I emailed the organization concerned who posted this news about any changes at BTV IN JAN and they told me they had no info on it.

She was on the graveyard shift on Sky News for a few nights about a week ago. Hate watching her on there as she deserves something so much better.

Have also heard rumors that Kelly Evans might be heading back to the USA soon so might be all change on WE again.

Caroline Hyde could possibly take up a role as a markets analyst in the city somewhere much like Jane Foley and Louise Cooper.

I miss the old Worldwide Exchange I used to watch it during school holidays or when I was off school sick. I used to watch it in the mornings before college, but now I prefer to look at the internet before I leave the house in the mornings.

"This is Worldwide Exchange, broadcasting live from Asia, Europe and the United States"

Great to see Maryam Nemazee back on twitter again yesterday and today with a updated profile could not see any new updated photos of her though .She is usually pretty good on this media forum and started highlighting financial news again which is really her main strength and main asset apart from her brown eyes and fair complexion though.Hope she gets gets something in business and economic affairs real soon with the BBC or GMTV they could do with immense talents and presenting skills .Noticed Caroline Hyde is also back on twitter apparently been away on holiday in Japan for two weeks just as they have come out of recession .I know she is a good economist but she could not have turned around their economy that quickly surely .Hope she now turn her attention to U.K economy and get it back on track as well .As I am s completing my Honours option in microeconomics just now I am glad she is back on tv she is very good economist and can explain things on economic issues relevant to my course studies that nobody can with her knowledge and expertise on the subject.

I almost overlooked one of Maryam's entries on her twitter account from yesterday 08/04/13 confirming she is soon going to be making an appearance on AL Jaz English real soon to paraphrase her .Great to see her get more tv work again missed her in her former role at her former employer recently though it is great to see her back presenting news programmes again.Hope though gets something with CNBC in the coming months in the financial news there where she really excels and thrives in that environment especially and is at her best as tv anchor .Wonder if this means she is still freelancing from Sky News on the graveyard shift there.?

Susan is single and it would take a lot of dollars to induce a move from Hong Kong. She has a long time partner.

I was trying to get on Maryam Nemazee's twitter page today but got a computer malware warning several times earlier today anybody else had the same problem at all?There were no entries on her account today which is strange as she was making several of them on Monday and Tuesday maybe it was due to this perhaps?Shame really as it was nice having her back on her twitter account after a break as she always has a lot of interesting things to say.
