About the show

The CNBC US program Closing Bell airs on CNBC between 3pm and 5pm, Eastern Time. The program is dual-anchored by Maria Bartiromo (primarily at the network's Englewood Cliffs, NJ studio) and another CNBC anchor (at the NYSE) between 3-4pm. If one of the anchors is out, the show is anchored by a substitute host. They include Melissa Francis, Melissa Lee and Rebecca Jarvis. Other regular fill-ins include Bob Pisani and Sue Herera (for Maria Bartiromo). During the 4-5pm ET block, Maria anchors solo (as per her contract). Tyler Mathisen was the former co-anchor from 3-4pm ET (originally from 4-5pm ET), until he was promoted to an off-camera job (CNBC managing editor) in 2005. That same year, Dylan Ratigan took over the 3-4pm ET co-anchoring duties until his departure from the network in March 2009.

The program covers the last hour of trading in the US stock markets, covering the closing bells of the NYSE and NASDAQ Stock Market at 4pm ET. Bob Pisani provides live reports from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Scott Wapner provides live reports from the NASDAQ. Like the "Opening Bell Countdown" segment on Squawk on the Street (which takes viewers to the opening bell), the "Closing Countdown" segment on this program (which takes viewers to the closing bell) also uses a countdown clock on the lower right of the screen (where the network bug usually appears).

After 4pm ET, there is analysis of the day's winners and losers, company results that are issued after the close of trade, and other business news.

As the major Asian markets all close at different times, there is no "Asian Closing Bell". The equivalent programme is Worldwide Exchange, which replaced Asia Market Wrap on 2005-12-19.

Logos

The current Closing Bell logo, had a similar resemblance to the Morning Call logo (used from 2005-12-19 to 2007-08-07), as both of those respective programmes used identical opening titles. The aforementioned Morning Call logo was dropped entirely on 2007-08-08 as that program was renamed, The Call.
