Hello!

Tomorrow at X p.m. Bloomberg's Erik Schatzker will anchor investment bankers at ... (some place).


The citation may not be exactly accurate, but I am pretty sure the main grammar structure is intact.

What I know about anchor only gives rise to blurred and rather blood freezing associations when I hear this... but I suppose there should be some explanation. I wonder about anchoring people, is this a common thing.
Thanks!

The verb 'anchor' can be used figuratively in many ways but considering the fact that Erik Schatzker ia an anchor it must be something about news programmes:

And one usually anchors a programme or presentation - not people. You may need to present a link to an article that has the actual wording in it.

აბა ყვავებს ვინ დაიჭერს, კარგო? გალიაში ბულბულები ზიან.

Thanks. This was said by a presenter, so no link.

I guess in more serious terms my question is exactly whether to anchor can be used this way, i.e. "to anchor somebody (e.g. guests of a show)".
