TORONTO – Amanda Lang is joining Bloomberg TV Canada.

The soon-to-be-launched business channel says Lang will produce and host a half-hour show called “Bloomberg North.”

The weekday series will dissect local and global business news and is set to debut early next year.

Lang joins the channel from CBC-TV where she filed occasional reports for “The National.” She also hosted the daily business series “The Exchange with Amanda Lang” on CBC News Network.

Bloomberg TV Canada is a 24/7 Canadian business and financial news channel, to be operated by Channel Zero. It’s set to launch Nov. 16.

Other recent hires include Pamela Ritchie as anchor of “The Daily Brief” and Michael Bancroft as executive producer of the channel.

“At the core of Bloomberg TV Canada is quality locally produced business news that’s important and relevant to Canadians,” Channel Zero’s vice president of news Mike Katrycz said Thursday in a release.

“Amanda’s strength as one of this country’s top business journalists will play a key role in delivering this.”
