Exec named new veep for international news

NEW YORK — CNBC tapped Jeremy Pink as vice president of international news and programming, as the financial news net consolidates its international channels at its U.S. headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, N.J.

CNBC took sole ownership of CNBC Intl., including CNBC Europe and CNBC Asia Pacific, in December after buying out partner Dow Jones, which held 50% of the venture. Dow Jones retained a 25% interest in CNBC World.

CNBC took full operational control of the international nets last month. Pink, who had been vice president of news at CNBC Europe, will oversee the international nets from CNBC’s world headquarters in New Jersey.

“Now that we’ve acquired sole ownership of the international networks, we’re looking to build our global strength,” said CNBC prexy Mark Hoffman.

Replacing Pink at CNBC Europe is Barbara Selzner, who comes to the net from Sky News in Ireland.
