MUMBAI: Business and financial news channel CNBC Asia has added two new correspondents to its news team. Betty Liu joins the network's Hong Kong bureau while Sri Jegarajah will be based in CNBC's regional headquarters in Singapore.

Liu has been appointed CNBC's Hong Kong correspondent. She will cover the network's morning programmes Asia Squawk Box and Asia Market Watch, while Jane Ong continues her role as the Hong Kong correspondent for the evening programmes Asia Market Wrap and CNBC Tonight. Liu was the Atlanta bureau chief for Financial Times, where she made frequent television appearances on CNN. She has also been a business correspondent with PBS in the US, and Taiwan bureau chief with Dow Jones Newswires.

Jegarajah will be one of CNBC's Singapore-based correspondents for the network's evening programmes Asia Market Wrap and CNBC Tonight.

Prior to Bloomberg, Sri was with Dow Jones Newswires, in London as commodities reporter and subsequently as a Singapore-based energy reporter. He was a regular commentator on CNBC during his time at Dow Jones.

CNBC Asia senior VP progamming Cynthia Owens said, "Betty and Sri are terrific additions to our award-winning on-air team. Both of them have extensive experience in business reporting and are at home in Asia. It is a reflection of CNBC's position as the world leader in business news that we can attract top talent like Betty and Sri."
