Europe Tonight is a television business news programme on CNBC Europe, broadcast from Monday to Thursday between 7pm and 8pm CET (6pm and 7pm WET). The programme is currently presented by Guy Johnson and Anna Martin.

History

The original Europe Tonight was a 30-minute market review broadcast on weekdays at 6:30pm CET until 2001. Launched in September 2004, the current incarnation of Europe Tonight replaced Frankfurt Closing Bell, which was shown at 8pm CET and co-presented from the Frankfurt Stock Exchange by Silvia Wadhwa and by Simon Hobbs in Londonmarker. Until 2004, the Deutsche Börse remained open later than the other European markets - until 20:00 CET. After the hours of electronic trading on the Xetra system were changed so as to stop at 17:30 CET, Wadhwa remained as co-host of the new Europe Tonight. The programme time previously filled by updates on late German trade was replaced by interviews with Frankfurt-based strategists, commentators and CEOs. The remainder of this version of the programme was essentially an update from European Closing Bell, in which Hobbs reviewed the day's business events and covered any late breaking news.

2007 revamp

The programme length was extended from 30 minutes to one hour on 26 March 2007 as part of schedule changes at the network, which also saw European Closing Bell have its runtime halved. Johnson was installed as presenter, and the show was given a new title sequence and its theme music was changed from that formerly used by Closing Bell to that used by Street Signs before December 2005. The format of the programme was heavily revamped, gaining some of the segments previously contained in the second hour of European Closing Bell, such as a daily Guest Investor. New features introduced include The Editor, where the editor of a European business publication discusses how they will be covering notable events, and an update on the US markets which comes live from the NASDAQ MarketSitemarker. Wadhwa no longer acts as co-host of Europe Tonight, but remains a contributor to the show. Anna Martin joined Johnson as co-host of the programme in January 2008, having previously been the show's regular reporter.

The show's timeslot was brought forward by an hour to 7pm CET from 4 February, 2008.
