Joe Kernen, Carl Quintanilla and David Faber hosted last night’s tribute special to Mark Haines, who died Tuesday night. A cause of death has not been revealed. Kernen and Faber were fixtures with Haines on the original “Squawk Box” in the early days of CNBC.
Scott Cohn reported the lead-off obituary story, which had a technical glitch midway through, the remainder of which was played later.
Haines’ co-hosts over the years on “Squawk on the Street”, Melissa Lee, Simon Hobbs, and Erin Burnett, who left CNBC earlier this month, all shared memories of Haines from the floor of the NYSE — showing video of his office, including a shirt which still had its IFB cord hanging from the collar.
Jim Cramer, host of “Mad Money” talked about when he joined the network: “I was a nobody. Haines made me somebody.”
