ntv / Stock Exchange News

Stock exchange news on TV since 1992

ntv began in Berlin at the end of 1992 as the first German news broadcaster, belonging to the RTL Media Group, headquartered in Cologne. Its four primary programming categories are news, finance, talk, and documentaries. Katja Dofel is a member of the ntv economic editorial staff and reports stock market news from the trading hall of the German Stock Exchange in Frankfurt.

The „mother“ of all stock market broadcasts

In 1997 she began reporting stock market news as an independent journalist from the New York Stock exchange. Since the year 2000 she has appeared exclusively on ntv, based in the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in the city of Main-Metropole. Since 2002 she has headed the ntv Stock Exchange Studio, where ntv produces stock market news broadcasts from the German Stock Exchange.

Live reports from the Frankfurt Stock Exchange are an essential component of ntv stock exchange coverage. These begin every trading day at 7:15 AM with the trading outlook, and end around 10:50 PM with a wrap-up of the topics of the day. Ntv also offers stock market information online at The ntv program „Telebörse“ is like the mother of all stock market programs – and celebrated its 50,000th broadcast in November 2014! Take a look at an ntv video about this wonderful anniversary here.

A trusted face

As a trusted stock exchange reporter, Katja Dofel is a veritable icon of German financial television. She often thinks back fondly about her time at the New York Stock Exchange at the end of the 1990’s. She frequently travels back to New York to fill in on camera for her ntv colleague Jens Korte (see photo below) while he is on vacation, and also to visit old friends.
