The journalist was the news channel’s first hired anchor

This Tuesday (2), Christiane Pelajo was announced as the first anchor hired by CNBC Brasil. The journalist worked for Globo for 26 years and became one of the presenters of the first Brazilian news program run by three women, Conexão Globonews.

In 1996, Christiane Pelajo was hired by the broadcaster to be part of the team of presenters that put the channel on air. After nine years at Globonews, she was reassigned to the anchor duo at Jornal da Globo, where she remained for more than ten years.

The journalist still speaks fluent English and French and has provided special coverage in all Brazilian regions and in several countries, such as France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Greece, India, the United States, the Dominican Republic and Chile. The communicator was also responsible for covering the World Cups in France and Germany and interviewing the main candidates for the presidency of the Republic of Brazil.

In November 2022, she resigned from Globo to dedicate herself to business journalism and became a TedX Speaker as one of the most reputable speakers in the country. Christiane Pelajo presented conferences at the Innovation, Technology and Creativity Festivals SXSW (Austin, Texas), WebSummit Rio and Lisbon, South Summit, Rio Innovation Week and Rio2C and is one of the authors of the books Ser + Em Comunicação, Uma Sobe and Puxa a Outra and Rise and Raise Others.

With his arrival at CNBC Brasil, he will take over one of the main prime-time newspapers on the new news channel. “I’m honored and excited to be an anchor at CNBC in Brazil. I’m immersed in the universe of business, innovation, technology and creativity. This new challenge has total synergy with the work I’ve been doing over the last two years. Let’s move with business journalism here in Brazil (…) It’s going to be historic and I can’t wait to say ‘Good evening’ again, on air!”, he confessed.

“Our first video name could not fail to be a woman who so well represents the strength, talent and intelligence of Brazilian journalism. Her knowledge in the business world, added to the news structure of CNBC Times Brasil, will contribute to quality of information in the country and present an innovative television journalism project”, said Douglas Tavolaro, founder and CEO of CNBC in Brazil.
