Bloomberg Television Debuts 'Eye To Eye'

Mar 31, 2011 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Bloomberg announced that it has launched "Eye To Eye," a new series on Bloomberg Television.

According to a release, hosted by Francine Lacqua, each episode of "Eye To Eye" features a new conversation with a self-made billionaire, entrepreneur or lifestyle icon, riding with Lacqua around the highest observation wheel in the world. In the premiere episode, Lacqua spoke with Sir Philip Green, founder of the famous retailer Topshop and known for his work with iconic supermodel Kate Moss.


"'Eye To Eye' captures the kind of conversations you don't have in a restaurant or boardroom," said Lacqua. "By bringing guests like Christian Louboutin, Sir Philip Green and Bianca Jagger to an unexpected venue like the London Eye, the show offers a whole new perspective on what makes these talented individuals such a powerful force in their fields." The half-hour program "Eye To Eye" airs Monday evenings at 8 pm GMT on Bloomberg Television, with additional repeats on Wednesday and Friday evenings and weekends.
