Jakarta, 15 January 2018 – Indonesian financiers and executives can now get their daily dose of business updates from a world leader in business news, CNBC, in Bahasa Indonesia, following the soft launch of CNBCIndonesia.com today. 2 years ago, CNBC and Trans entered a partnership and have been trailing the service. They finally decided that they have enough elements in lace now and that’s why they soft-launched the portal.
Helmed by former Detik Finance managing editor Wahyu Daniel, CNBCIndonesia.com brings together familiar names from Indonesian media industry, including Herdaru Purnomo (formerly in Bloomberg), Gustidha Budiartie (formerly inTempo), and Arif Gunawan (formerly in Bisnis Indonesia, Bloomberg TV, The Jakarta Post). Having old hands with extensive background in economy and business reporting in its editorial team, CNBC Indonesia promises to facilitate better information flow for business decision making and help the country realize the full potential of its capital markets and businesses.
In addition to the freshly-launched news portal, CNBC Indonesia will deliver the latest business and financial news through its upcoming TV station by the same name. From what we’ve heard, the TV station expects to air its first broadcast in October 2018, and will have a dedicated editorial team different to the news portal’s just as CNN Indonesia does. In the meantime, CNBC Indonesia delivers its video-based contents via YouTube.
CNBC Indonesia joins the rank of Chairul Tanjung’s other media portfolio, namely TransTV, Trans7, Detik.com, and CNN Indonesia.
