CNBC Asia Pacific promotes heads of operations and news programming

MUMBAI: CNBC Asia Pacific has promoted Peter Juno to senior vice president and director of operations and Cynthia Owens to senior vice president, news programming. Both Juno and Owens previously held the vice president title in their respective roles.

Juno will be in charge of CNBC Asia Pacific's operations and engineering requirements and will be based in the business news network's headquarters in Singapore.

Juno will also coordinate the operational requirements between CNBC Asia Pacific and CNBC networks in the US and Europe. His responsibilities include ensuring operational and budget efficiency within the network's news bureaus in Tokyo and Hong Kong.

Juno joined Asia Business News in 1993 and has been with the station through the merger with CNBC. He was part of the negotiation team in talks between Dow Jones and NBC, the parent companies of ABN and CNBC, prior to the merger.

Prior to his work at Asia Business News and CNBC Asia Pacific, he was with TVNZ/Avalon Studios in New Zealand in various production and technical roles.

Owens, on the other hand, leads CNBC Asia Pacific's news programming division and is responsible for CNBC Asia Pacific's news production and presentation, programming format development and newsgathering techniques. She will be based in CNBC's Asia Pacific headquarters in Singapore.

She has been credited for launching the business news unit for ABC News in New York, organising and coordinating business reporting for World News Tonight with Peter Jennings and for her contribution to other ABC News programmes.

Owens has also worked for Dow Jones & Company as executive producer for Wall Street Journal Television in New York and as deputy news director for WBIS. A print reporter for several years, she has also worked with The Asian Wall Street Journal in Hong Kong and Bangkok, and at Knight Ridder with their Financial News arm in Tokyo as congressional correspondent in Washington DC and as a business reporter in Chicago.

Before rejoining CNBC Asia Pacific, she was vice president of professional channels for iVillage, the largest women's web portal based in New York.

CNBC Asia Pacific president and CEO Alexander Brown said, "Both Peter and Cynthia have played very significant roles in the growth of the network. Given that we produce 10 hours of live programming every business day, we take pride in the quality, accuracy and presentation of our news output. The number of awards and accolades that our anchors and programmes have received over the years is testament to the hard work and commitment of our staff. These two individuals have led the charge in their respective areas, and their promotions are a reflection of their efforts."
