New York (HedgeCo.Net) – CNBC’s Susan Krakower and Raymond Borelli are set to oversee creative development, programming and distribution plans for the revival of PBS’ “Wall Street Week”, with hedge fund giant Skybridge Capital talking the lead. At its peak, the 1970’s show aired on more than 300 stations nationwide and had over four million weekly viewers.
Wall Street Week (styled Wall $treet Week [W$W]) was an investment news and information TV program that was broadcast weekly each Friday on Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) in the United States. It had a host (or hosts) and guest experts participating in discussions on the stock market and focused on forecasts. The program, created by Anne Truax Darlington, aired from 1970 to 2005 and was officially titled Wall Street Week with Louis Rukeyser during the 32 years he hosted.
SkyBridge Capital (SkyBridge), a global investment management firm and producer of the SALT Conference which is currently underway in Las Vegas, announced it has licensed the rights to the iconic financial television program from Maryland Public Television.
The new Wall Street Week will be an extension of the content, people and predictions that have been the hallmark of the SALT conference since its inception six years ago.
“‘Wall Street Week’ was once the most powerful name in financial television. We will recreate the premier platform for both retail and institutional investors to tune in for a thoughtful analysis of the markets and other relevant financial topics,” said Anthony Scaramucci, founder and co-managing partner of SkyBridge.
