In its new format, BIZ ASIA AMERICA provides a daily business news magazine aimed at the general interest viewer.  With a special focus on US-China trade, finance, and investment, BIZ ASIA AMERICA explores the trends that shape the increasingly integrated economic world in which we live.

The program combines business news with in depth global news reports from an increasing line-up of Correspondents across Asia, South America, Africa, and Europe.  The increase in broadcast hours allows CCTV America to explore comprehensively global issues which other news channels treat in a repetitive, headline format. 

The new programming team is anchored by Phillip Yin, Mike Walter, and Elaine Reyes in Washington and Michelle Makori in New York.

Joining the CCTV America team, the newest addition is Anand Naidoo, former anchor at CNN International and Al Jazeera English.*

Special segments of the new program will highlight developments in new technology with regular reports from Silicon Valley.  The two hour program also increases CCTV News' commitment to coverage of Central and South America.   A new team has been assembled in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo to explore the growth of Brazil.   An expanded operation in Mexico City will complement a continuing presence in Havana, Buenos Aires, Bogota, and Lima to provide more extensive coverage of this region than any other English language news broadcaster.

CCTV America was launched on February 6, 2012 to provide both North American and global viewers, additional perspectives on China, world and U-S developments.   The move was part of the effort by CCTV News to increase the quality, breadth, and reach of the its global news channel founded in April 2010.    In addition to broadcasts from Beijing, CCTV News has also pioneered extensive contributions on the African continent with its one year old Africa programming center in Nairobi.

In the United States, CCTV News aims to be a fully competitive television news service.   It is distributed across the US on DISH TV, satellite channel 265.   In the greater Washington DC area on digital terrestrial MHz Network channel 3.    On Cable: Comcast Channel 273.

In New York:  Time Warner Cable channel 134;   Verizon FIOS Channel 277.
