The first live video report from the trading floor of the New York Stock Exchange was in 1987, when CNN sent Jan Hopkins to report live during the stock market crash of that year. Immediately thereafter, the NYSE established its broadcast and multimedia center which coordinates all the newscasts from the Exchange.

Today, CNBC has its own elaborate set in the place where one of the trading posts stood, and over 30 broadcasters report live to audiences around the world every day, not to mention the dozens of other media outlets that cover the financial markets from within the NYSE and utilize its multimedia center.
