Local business execs to appear on CNBC's Squawk Box

Dan Amos will appear on CNBC's Squawk Box Wednesday morning.

The business news and talk television show will feature the Aflac chairman and chief executive officer as a guest host.

He'll talk business with two hand-picked guests: Phil Tomlinson, chairman and CEO of Columbus-based credit card processing business TSYS, and David Ratcliffe, chairman, president and CEO of Atlanta-based energy firm Southern Company.

The group plans to touch on company news, the latest economic issues and how they are affecting their businesses.

Amos has appeared as a guest on the morning show several times before, but this will be his first time hosting.

The show runs on CNBC from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. Amos will co-host the show between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m.

Squawk Box is anchored by Becky Quick, Carl Quintanilla and Joe Kernen. It regularly features big names in business and politics.
