CNBC officially announced today that David Faber’s new half-hour lunchtime show “The Strategy Session” will be cutting into “Power Lunch’s” existing two-hour time slot starting June 7.
We broke the news that CNBC was planning such a change back in April and The New York Times’ Brian Stelter was first today with the update.
The show will air at noon and Faber will be joined by co-host Gary Kaminsky, a contributing editor at the network.
“Fast Money Halftime Report” will air at 12:30, leaving “Power Lunch” with an hour from 1-2 p.m.
UPDATE – Here’s the press release with a description of the show:

The goal of the program: to keep viewers in front of the money so they can become more informed investors.
