“For more than three decades, CNBC has had a unique place in covering the nation’s political landscape – our audience demands we expose and explain connections between policy, the markets and business,” Dan Colarusso, senior vice president of CNBC Business News, wrote in a memo to staff. “Now we have a dual mandate to drive deep, original reporting on economic issues for Business Day and attack sharp, new angles on the day’s critical politics stories for The News with Shepard Smith.”
Shepard Smith launched his show in September, bringing a newscast to CNBC’s 7 PM ET hour.
