Closing Bell can refer to two CNBC programs, the original Closing Bell on CNBC (which debuted on February 4, 2002), and European Closing Bell on CNBC Europe.


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 and Bill Griffeth(at the NYSE) between 3-4pm. If Maria Bartiromo is out, the show is anchored by a substitute host. They include Melissa Francis, Melissa Lee and Trish Regan. 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. Starting January 2011, Bill Griffeth became co-anchor after co-anchoring Power Lunch since 1996-2009 and taking a 1 year leave of absence.

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.

Worldwide Closing Bell

Around CNBC's global branches, there are many counterparts of Closing Bell in the world:

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.


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.
