Bill Griffeth Taking A Leave From CNBC

Griffeth_11.9.jpgTVNewser has learned longtime CNBC anchor Bill Griffeth is taking a leave from CNBC for the next year. CNBC president Mark Hoffman made the announcement in an email to staff. Griffeth, who co-hosts “Power Lunch,” will take the time off to travel, read and do other things people who take leaves of absence do. Watercolors?

Griffeth was part of the team that started the Financial News Network in 1981. He joined CNBC in 1991 when NBC purchased FNN and merged it with CNBC.

His last day, at least for the next year, is Wednesday, Nov. 25.
