Financial Times Lex column takes to the airwaves on Bloomberg TV

The Financial Times today announces collaboration with the BLOOMBERG TELEVISION® network to bring the FT’s agenda-setting Lex commentary to Bloomberg’s 200 million global viewers.

Lex columnists will appear on Bloomberg Television every weekday between 6:30–7:30 AM EST to expand on commentary addressed in the day’s column, providing sharp and insightful analysis on the biggest business and financial news. The featured segments will also appear on FT.com and the BLOOMBERG.COM® website.

Lex, the flagship daily opinion column on the back of the Financial Times, has an estimated daily readership of 1.3 million. First appearing in 1945, the column has proven to be the incisive and authoritative voice on business and financial topics ranging from individual companies to global economics.

John Ridding, Chief Executive Officer of the Financial Times, commented: “The FT’s goal is to bring the very best news and analysis to the world’s financial decision-makers across all platforms. This agreement with Bloomberg Television provides another channel and a quality audience for our premium commentary.”
