It's funny to see how three different presenters deal with the same introduction. Mark Barton celebrates the very existence of the English language, while Rishaad Salamat is more of a down-to-earth guy tumbling over the words on the prompter first before playing it cool afterwards. And Andrea Catherwood? She has a pretty characteristic pronounciation as well. They all have at Bloomberg.

Let's listen to them talking about the celebrities and moguls at Cannes 2010...

anyone watch Charlie Rose? I think his 'standard' of guests has gone downhill loads
I've watched him now and again. But i tune over to CNBC when he's on now as most of his guests focus on the USA economy / politics.

I saw her. She also anchors 'Last Word' sometimes when Andrea is off and Maryam isn't there. Maryam usually covers for Andrea.

Yes lots of different accents. Poppy Trowbridge has a most unusual accent. I think she grew up in Toronto. Sounds half British / half Canadian to me.

The show that is on at 8:00PM - 10PM

I got bored with Streetsmart on Bloomberg. So watch CNBC in the evenings.

Exactly what I was alluding to, he used to have a good mixture of guests, but now as you say they are all economy.
Don't get me wrong I like a bit of economy, (economy starts at home ) but it's nice to have some light relief too

Bloomberg only take the Charlie Rose Show because of the type of guests he has. If you want trivia you've got Leno on CNBC!

The show that's on from 8-10pm is US Closing Bell. It was one of the first CNBC shows I watched Is Streetsmart on Bloomberg their equivalent of the Closing Bell? I remember a few years ago (2007) their equivalent was called The Final Word and I watched it one night. Mum said she couldn't tell the difference between the two as she was listening in the kitchen and not watching!

Like I was saying, Charlie Rose's show used to be a good mix of economy and 'trivia' as epsom calls it, Bloomberg used to take it.then too

Thankfully i don't have to suffer that drivel as Bloomberg West goes out on Bloomberg at the same time.

Ah yes, Closing Bell. That's what it's called! Yes, Streetsmart is the Bloomberg equivalent of Closing Bell. Maybe it's just me. But i've noticed that Closing Bell cover more interesting topics than Streetsmart.

Don't know of 'The Final Word' as i started watching Bloomberg / CNBC in Dec 2009.

I did notice he interviewed the creator's of Southpark about a month ago. Celebs of a sort but some light relief for sure.

That's interesting. I've never seen Streetsmart so I don't know what topics they have. The Final Word was on Bloomberg around 2007/2008 and I only watched it once or twice. It was a two hour show like Closing Bell but it seemed to have less ad breaks. The night I watched that show was in May 2007. I've been watching CNBC since 2006 and I occasionally checked out Bloomberg too.

Topics like the 'Fed' and IPO's. QE2 and QE3. Were not talking luxury ocean liners here!

I still miss Coooooooooooooooooooooonaaaaaaaaaaaan o' Briiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeennnnnnnn

That's how they used to announce him right ?

And I've just realized that this should also be in CNBC thread

So who do I miss from Bloomberg? Andrea Catherwood since she left the 'mornings'
