Leaders Summit Official Broadcast Partner CNBC to Host First-ever Live Broadcast from the Floor of the UN General Assembly

As the Official Broadcast partner of the UN Global Compact Leaders Summit, leading business cable network CNBC will broadcast a live special “CNBC Global Summit: The World’s Financial Future”—the first-ever live show from the floor of the UN General Assembly at 8 p.m. tonight.

From CNBC:  “Hosted by CNBC’s Erin Burnett, the special will bring together world business leaders to provide insight on topics such as the future of oil; whether BRIC nations can still be the growth engines they once were and continue to lead the way; and what CEOs think is a critical factor to the future success of their companies.”

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is the keynote guest for the program, which will be hosted by anchor Erin Burnett. Other Summit participants who will appear on the program include Jamshed Irani, Director of Tata Sons; Andrei Galaev, CEO of Sakhalin Energy; Martha Tilaar of The Martha Tilaar Company; and Antonio De Abreau, CEO of EDP Brazil.

CNBC’s coverage of the Summit will continue throughout the Global Compact Leaders Summit on Thursday, 24 June.
