CNBC to Amp Up Real-Estate Coverage

CNBC announced today that it will be increasing its real-estate coverage in a series of ongoing reports under the rubric "The Home Front."

"CNBC Washington-based real estate correspondent Diana Olick, among others, will provide news and analysis affecting home buyers, sellers, owners, builders, lenders and investors," noted the press release. "With housing prices falling in virtually all regions, and foreclosures rising sharply, real estate is a growing concern for millions of Americans."

It’ll be interesting to see whether Fox Business, which generally hasn’t made real-estate a priority snice launching, follows suit.
