Today's Business: Early Edition
In 1999, Today's Business: Early Edition was added on weekdays from 4–5 am ET on CNBC. It was hosted by Bob Sellers and Bonnie Behrand, which expanded the whole Today's Business block to 3 hours.
Today's Business: Early Edition provided frequent round-ups of key business and general news stories, along with sports updates. Regular segments included "Wake Up with Jay", highlights from Jay Leno's Tonight Show monologue, and live weather reports from Chief Meteorologist Joe Witte.
CNBC Europe edition
A business news television program also titled Today's Business aired on CNBC Europe from 6–7 am CET (5–6 am WET) between January 2001 and March 2007. It was originally based on the CNBC U.S. morning version of Today's Business.
The European Today's Business was presented by Steve Sedgwick from 2006 through the end of the program's run in 2007. Earlier presenters of the program were Simon Hobbs (2001–2003), Serena Al-Awa (2003), and Guy Johnson (2003–2006).
Segments on the program included a review of the previous day's business, a news headlines round-up, as well as early results from the markey. The program also linked up with CNBC Asia for continuing coverage of the Asian session.
The program was renamed from Today's Business Europe in May 2003. While the title was only slightly altered, the program was reduced from two hours to one (with the then-titled CNBC Europe Squawk Box gaining an hour). While Today's Business Europe had been presented in front of CNBC Europe's video wall, the new program, initially co-anchored by Guy Johnson and Serena Al-Awa, was presented from behind a desk.
The program ended its run on March 23, 2007 and was replaced on March 26, 2007 by a new show, Capital Connection, co-anchored by Maura Fogarty at CNBC Asia in Singapore and Sedgwick in London.
