Fund of hedge funds firm SkyBridge Capital announced Thursday that it is reviving an “iconic” financial television program.
The firm, most famous for its annual SALT conference which is currently taking place in Las Vegas, has licensed the right to "Wall Street Week" from Maryland Public Television. Former CNBC employees Susan Krakower and Raymond Borelli have joined SkyBridge to oversee creative development, programming and distribution plans for the show's re-launch.
SkyBridge explained that the show “will be an extension of the content, people and predictions that have been the hallmark of the SALT conference since its inception six years ago.” WSW, which aired from 1970 to 2005, was the must-watch program among investors Friday nights on PBS during the 35-year period.
Founded by Anthony Scaramucci in 2005, SkyBridge manages about $10.5 billion in assets.
