Former X Factor presenter Kate Thornton and T4 presenter Rick Edwards will be among the hosts of CNBC’s new three-hour live show City Limits: Live, broadcasting from Amsterdam, Madrid and London.
The show’s reporters will get involved with various foodie, cultural and sporting challenges and offer tips and advice on travelling in these three cities.
“We are spoilt for choice in Europe for exciting city destinations, however we chose London, Madrid and Amsterdam as they currently offer a wide range of vibrant and diverse attractions, many off the beaten track,” explained Martin Conroy, executive producer, CNBC. “City Limits: Live will highlight the very best that these cities have to offer,” he continued.
Kiss 100’s Melvin O’Doom, Dutch presenter Levi Van Kempen, Spanish presenter Javier ‘Maldo’ Maldonado and former This Morning presenter Samanthi Jayawardena will also feature in the project.
“As part of our weekend programming, we wanted to make an engaging cultural programme that would appeal to a younger audience,” continued Conroy. “On the weekends we already show a variety of lifestyle, sports and entertainment shows including The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, and think that City Limits: Live fits in well within that strand.”
The live show will transmit across Europe from 5-8pm on Saturday, 19 July, on CNBC (channel 505 on Sky, channel 613 on Virgin and channel 210 on Freesat).
