"I'm going to be anchoring there, and hopefully expanding my reporting as well...It's a tremendous opportunity to join an already great team. My background and my interest is in international news. I'd love to tap into that. I've been covering the consumer and retail for a few good years now at CNBC....I think across the board, you can't separate the business stories from the international political stories any longer.
