A CNBC Original Steps Aside

ScottCohnScott Cohn, who was on of the original CNBC employees, is leaving full-time work with the business channel, and moving to Santa Cruz, CA where his wife will expand her business in the education field. Cohn will continue to contribute to the network.

In a memo from CNBC president Mark Hoffman, as first reported by Talking Biz News, Cohn joined CNBC on March 20, 1989, a month before the network launched, as part of the original NY/NJ reporting team. In 1990, Cohn opened the Chicago Bureau, where he would stay for 9 years, before returning to headquarters.

He has covered most of the biggest business and general news stories of the past 25 years—from Enron and WorldCom to Hurricane Katrina and the Boston Marathon bombings. He has interviewed the famous and infamous, from Warren Buffett (his first live interview on CNBC in 1998) to Bernie Madoff. His documentaries have showcased the best of CNBC’s reporting.

In a couple of weeks, Scott will leave CNBC to make his journey West. In addition to some teaching and trying his hand at producing documentaries, he will become a special correspondent for CNBC, continuing to spearhead the annual Top States extravaganza.

Please join us in wishing Scott all the very best in his new adventure.
