I've been reading the CNBC appreciation thread for a while now. It's great to see that there is no bullying but a contructive approach to your "passion" coming from the others. That made me feel welcome to sign up.
They all seem really interested, that might be why it has so many views. When I joined DS first I did get some stick though.

Why did you not tell me before that you were going to check on the pigeons, that means they have been fed twice then does it? If we carry on like this we wont get the pie in the oven

Yep, but I didn't give them too much this time! They weren't very hungry, I think it's because the end of the world is nigh

To get back to Bloomberg matters!

Mark Barton sometimes stands in for Francine or Maryam when they are off. However I think that Manus is now the top male London based reporter for Bloomberg.

Stephanie, you said in the past you rarely watch Bloomberg. Is that going to change in the future?

I think there's a difference between a host and a markets reporter. Manus is obviously a reporter. Mark has been a reporter for a short time when he had nothing to host, but nevertheless he's a host. Now he's lost his show to Owen, and with Manus being the main reporter he's been made redundant. I don't know, working as a fill-in is obviously not a dream job... or is it?

He could join Rishaad Salamat and John Dawson in Hong Kong. Bloomberg Asia offers a lot of potential. They don't have something like "Last Word Asia." It'd be a significant change for him, though.

It might well do, it all depends on what CNBC is like post-Erin Burnett (if I can get used to it or not).

Yes Mark originally a markets man. But that post seems to have been taken over by the stunning Caroline Hyde. Remains to be seen what will happen to him. But it looks like a 4:00 AM start for Linzie after all. Just checked the Europe Schedule on the Bloomberg website and looks like that what's going to happen. Dont think a Last Word Asia would work with Linzie updating us on the Asian markets on First Look anyway.

Great to see this thread. Good to see Linzie has improved - I remember when she started - still liked a laugh before I went to work! Like Francine and Judith and her amazing collection of necklaces. Caroline I find patronising. Was sad to see Rish and John go to HK. Manus makes me laugh - he so wants to be the alpha dog!

I started watching Bloomberg after Linzie joined so i missed her early days. We'll have to agree to disagree about Caroline. I think she's great. I'm not expecting "The Pulse" to look any different tomorrow.

I think I told you that in an earlier post or two

Yeah you did. It's just that there was a lot of confusion about the start times. I wish Bloomberg would get rid of all this dreary sport they show at the weekend. The sports car racing is but ditch the rest. Were not getting Political Capital anymore unless it's on overnight. I miss Julianna Goldman

Probably, but one things for certain, It won't last as long as the CNBC thread, right CNBC'er?

Stephanie watches CNBC but doesn't really watch CNN or Bloomberg, that why the CNBC thread will last and the other will not.

Yes she does only watch CNBC, but the Bloomberg thread is not her thread, so?

And why you using people's real name's?

Perhaps we should get back to a discussion about Bloomberg TV instead of all these stupid comments about whether this thread will survive.

First names are no big deal are they? Presumeably yours is Rob, mine is Stuart!

Well, today I've only been able to see "The Pulse." At 10am BST Maryam welcomed the viewers to the second hour... so I guess there's no additional hour for her after all. Also, the graphics remained the same, which is kind of surprising.

Has anyone seen "First Look" and "Countdown"? Is the former shown at 4am? How was the latter show with Owen?

Mark Barton was just on the air during the top story of "Inside Track."
