The Exchange with Amanda Lang (formerly The Lang and O'Leary Exchange) is a Canadian business news television series, which airs weekdays on CBC Television and CBC News Network. Hosted by CBC's senior business correspondent Amanda Lang and formerly co-hosted by entrepreneur/investor Kevin O'Leary, the series presents a summary of the day's major business stories in a manner similar to Lang and O'Leary's earlier Business News Network series SqueezePlay.[1]

The show originally aired as a half-hour daily series, starting at 4:30 p.m. Eastern. As of March 1, 2010 The Lang and O'Leary Exchange became an hour-long show starting at 7 p.m., pre-taped earlier in the evening, and aired on the CBC News Network. In September 2012, the show was revised into two half-hour formats, and gained an airing at 6:30 p.m. local time for the first half hour on CBC Television following local newscasts. That format featured the Big Three in the first half hour, and the top two in its second half hour.

Guest hosts, when Lang or O'Leary have been absent, have included Rudyard Griffiths, Bruce Sellery, Preet Banerjee, Som Seif, Mike Abramsky, Dianne Buckner, Danielle Bochove, Michael Hyatt, David Chilton and David Kaufman.

On August 11, 2014, it was announced that Kevin O'Leary would leave the CBC, and join Bell Media to return to his previous home of BNN. As a result of the change, Amanda Lang became the sole host of the program, which was re-named The Exchange the following Monday.[2]
