During an appearance on CNBC’s “Fast Money” this week, Regis Philbin was offered a job — as a summer intern.
During Philbin’s appearance, Greenlight Capital president David Einhorn called in to the CNBC control room because he’s “always wanted to meet Regis.” Einhorn, who runs a New York-based hedge fund, congratulated Regis on a recent stock pick and said he’d like to bring Philbin on in an official capacity: “We’re trying to get some young blood in at Greenlight, some young minds, and I was wondering maybe if you want to come intern for the summer,” Einhorn suggested.
“Exactly what I’ve got, some young blood,” Philbin joked. Watch:
