Bloomberg TV has been around for years, but it has generally been considered too wonky for all but the wonkiest finance types.

"There's an audience that may have been with CNBC that's going to be attracted by the kind of presentation we're doing," says recently hired head of Bloomberg TV, David Rhodes.
