Wake Up Call is a show on CNBC that aired in the early morning, premiered from 6 to 8AM ET on February 4, 2002.[1] Later it was moved to 5 to 7AM timeslot. Previous program shown in the same time slot was Today's Business.

Originally co-anchored by Liz Claman and Carl Quintanilla (see complete anchor listing below), Wake Up Call was hosted by Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, sometimes in conjunction with a guest host. The programme used a slightly different graphics package to other CNBC programmes; in particular, a different format for the ticker.

The program ended its run on December 16, 2005 and was replaced by Worldwide Exchange on December 19.

Today's Business was the equivalent program on CNBC Europe and used the same theme music as Wake Up Call. That program, which was hosted by Steve Sedgwick, ended its run on March 23, 2007 and replaced by Capital Connection on March 26, 2007.

There was also a program on CNBC Asia called Asia Wake Up Call. It merged with Asia Squawk Box in 2003.
