NYSE eyeing media floor presence amid struggle to bring back traders
NYSE eyeing possible September reopening of the floor to media outlets but could be pushed back: Gasparino
Sources tell FOX Business’ Charlie Gasparino that the NYSE has opened limited media presence on its 2nd floor but most networks have balked at a return.
As New York City slowly reopens for business, one of the world’s most popular and historic business television studios is making plans to reopen as well.
The floor of the New York Stock Exchange, which has been closed to the media since March of last year because of the COVID-19 epidemic, could be eyeing a possible September return, according to people with direct knowledge of the Big Board’s thinking on the matter.
In the coming weeks, NYSE staff will be contacting media outlets that have a presence on the floor about the possible reopening and to discuss safety protocols, these people say. The situation, these people add, is fluid and largely depends on the continued receding of the pandemic; earlier in the week, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that some COVID restrictions such as outdoor mask-wearing could be eased amid a decline in cases, deaths and people needing to be hospitalized.
