After getting some criticism for staying in infomercial and other taped programming on recent weekends, CNBC is going wall-to-wall for Hurricane Irene coverage Sunday. CNBC will be live from 6am-11pmET Sunday, when Irene is expected to be hammering the New Jersey, New York and New England coasts. Making matters more challenging, CNBC is based in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, which means some New York City-based employees may have to hunker down in Jersey for the weekend. CNBC’s Melissa Lee and Carl Quintanilla will host Sunday’s primetime special from 8pm-11pm.
