Power Lunch is a television business news program on CNBC, airing between 1:00pm and 2:00pm Eastern Time. It is presented by Tyler Mathisen, Sue Herera, and Michelle Caruso-Cabrera. Simon Hobbs will fill in on occasion. Bill Griffeth anchored the program alone from 1996 to 2002. Caruso-Cabrera joined the program as Griffeth's original co-presented from 2002-02-04 to 2003-12-05, before being replaced by Herera starting on 2003-12-08. Caruso-Cabrera and Dennis Kneale appeared on the show regularly in their respective analyst capacities until both became full co-presenters in 2009. Mathisen joined the program in late 2009, after Griffeth's leave of absence began. Power Lunch used to air for two hours (noon to 2 ET) until June 7, 2010, when it moved to 1 ET and had its running time cut in half, from 2 hours to 1 hour, to make room for The Strategy Session at noon ET and the Fast Money Halftime Report at 12:30 ET.
