CNBC, the US-based business and financial news network, has unveiled its new studios at the heart of the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).

CNBC will use the new facility, based within Nasdaq Dubai’s Market Site, to deliver a deeper focus on the Middle East business story and further enhance its editorial presence across the region, it said in a statement.

Earlier this year, CNBC opened its Middle East headquarters in Abu Dhabi at Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) and has since broadcast Capital Connection from the facility, fronted by Hadley Gamble and Nancy Hungerford.

Television output from CNBC’s Dubai studio will now feed into Capital Connection and across CNBC’s headquarters around the world.

Spearheading coverage from the new studio will be the network’s newly appointed Dubai correspondent, Dan Murphy, who relocates from the CNBC’s Asia Pacific headquarters in Singapore, where he regularly fronted CNBC’s business day programming.

Murphy said: “We’re going to be at the epicentre of Dubai’s business community telling the dynamic Middle East business story to our global audience.”

CNBC also announced it has appointed a number of production, technical operations and digital roles at the new Dubai studios.

KC Sullivan, president and managing director at CNBC International, said: “Our Dubai bureau will give further bandwidth to our headquarters in Abu Dhabi and provide us with the opportunity to enhance our coverage from the region.”
