CNBC takes its hit morning show Street Signs to Facebook

London. Monday 11th July. CNBC International, Europe's number one business and financial news channel, will trial streaming its daily morning show Street Signs via its Facebook page this week.

With Brexit continuing to send shockwaves through the global financial markets, CNBC has seen an unprecedented volume of people coming to the network over the last two weeks.

CNBC International's head of news and programming, John Casey said:

"Alongside surging traffic from our core C-Suite and investor audience, we have noted a marked increase in the number of millennials using our product. They are mainly consuming social content via mobile and tablet. Our Facebook Live trial will allow our digital native audience to trial our TV product for the first time."

The live streaming of Street Signs will be broadcast daily on CNBC International's Facebook page – Facebook.com/CNBCInternational - between 9am and 10am BST. Following the trial the network will make a decision as to whether the daily Facebook Live stream will become a permanent feature.

During the TV ad-breaks, CNBC International's social media team have a host of immersive content planned for Facebook users to become involved in the show taking place live on-air. The ad-breaks will also give viewers a behind the scenes look at CNBC International's London headquarters and a chance to meet some of its most popular journalists.
