Worldwide Exchange is a television business news program on CNBC channels around the world. It used to be broadcast live from studios on three continents until May 11, 2012. The global program is anchored by Wilfred Frost, Carolin Roth & Susan Li and is produced by CNBC Europe in London. Billed as "the first ever global business news broadcast", Worldwide Exchange began its broadcast on 2005, and is the first CNBCprogram to be jointly produced by three of the network's regional channels. It airs from 4am to 6am ET on the main CNBC channel and CNBC World in the United States, 10am to noon CET on CNBC Europe, and 4pm to 6pm (with DST) or 5pm to 7pm (without DST) Hong Kong/Singapore/Taiwan Time on CNBC Asia. As a result of the success of Worldwide Exchange, a second joint production, Capital Connection, debuted on CNBC Europe and CNBC Asia on March 26, 2007.
Worldwide Exchange replaced Wake Up Call, an early morning pre-market program on CNBC US; Morning Exchange, a mid-morning program on CNBC Europe; as well as Asia Market Wrap and CNBC Tonight on CNBC Asia, a daily wrap-up of the top business news in Asia. On October 13, 2014, Worldwide Exchange was switched to a full 16:9 letterbox presentation and re-launched in 1080i high-definition on CNBC US.
