Singapore, 15 April 2009 – CNBC’s weekly reach grew 37% in Singapore in March among affluent viewers according to TNS Singapore people-meter data.* CNBC also had the widest reach of pay-television news channels on a weekly basis among this elite audience, according to TNS data.*
“This is phenomenal growth and it reinforces the quality of CNBC’s content, offering fast, accurate, actionable and unbiased information and analysis to our audience of C-Suite elite, high net worth, and financial investors,” said Jeremy Pink, President and Managing Director, CNBC Asia Pacific.
“When it matters most, people turn to CNBC, First in Business Worldwide, anytime, anywhere,” he added. “These results are a testament to the value of this network as being an important and compelling voice of business and financial news and analysis.”
The increase in reach, though, does not fully reflect CNBC’s total reach, as it only measures in-home viewing and does not take into consideration out of home viewing in office buildings, trading floors, fitness centers and the like.
