New presenter line-Up as Working Lunch relaunches

The BBC's award-winning Economics and Business Unit today announces a new-look Working Lunch with a powerful new presenting team as well as new titles, set and a greater online presence.


Working Lunch, the BBC's biggest business programme, will re-launch this Autumn on BBC Two with new presenters Declan Curry and Naga Munchetty, while Adam Shaw will take the helm at Breakfast and the News Channel.


The programme's online presence will be increased with a daily blog and much greater audience interaction.


At a time of significant economic uncertainty and instability the new team will provide the most up-to-date, relevant and accessible news and analysis of the financial situation and what it means for peoples' pockets.


Jeremy Hillman, Editor of the BBC Economics and Business Unit, said: "I'm thrilled that Declan and Naga will be coming together to co-present Working Lunch at a time when our audience is crying out to understand as much as they can about what's happening in the economy and how it's affecting them.


"They both have huge experience in business journalism and will bring a real wit and incisiveness to the programme.


"Adam will be a great addition to the Breakfast line up with his long business experience and great warmth and humour."


Naga Munchetty joins the BBC from Bloomberg, where she has been a senior presenter covering economics and business in the studio and on the road.


Previously she has worked at Channel 4 News and CNBC.


Declan Curry has been the face of BBC Breakfast business news for several years and recently combined that role with regular appearances on the BBC News Channel.


Adam Shaw is making the move to mornings on BBC Breakfast and the News Channel from Working Lunch.


He has presented business for the Today programme, BBC World, the Financial World Tonight and Business Breakfast in his long and successful career.


Together they have an unbeatable wealth of business reporting experience, having interviewed hundreds of CEOs and reported widely from around the UK.
