Nothing like a little Veuve Clicquot to round out a 16-year career with NBC.
This was Jonathan Wald‘s last day on the job as CNBC SVP. At 4pm, co-workers gathered in the CNBC boardroom for a goodbye toast. In attendance, CNBC president Mark Hoffman, and anchors Michelle Caruso-Cabrera and Margaret Brennan, among others. CNBC’s Pharmaceutical Reporter Mike Huckman Tweeted about it: “At sendoff 4 CNBC VP Biz News Jonathan Wald. He’ll be missed.”
Wald’s first job with NBC News was in 1983 as a desk assistant. His father, Richard, is a past president of the news division.
It’s not known where Wald’s next stop will be, but the NYPost reports at least two venerable names in news are in the mix to fill the vacancy, including former ABC/CNNer Victor Neufeld who, the Post reports, interviewed for the job last Friday.
