Filling Up and Hunkering Down in Newsrooms

This is no doubt a familiar site in newsrooms across the Northeast. Air mattresses are being filled up as staffers spend the night — or whenver they can catch some sleep — at work as coverage of Hurricane Sandy continues.

CNBC’s Michelle Caruso-Cabrera who is anchoring primetime coverage with Bill Griffeth Tweeted this picture of “Squawk Box” senior producer Robert Contino who’s got his queen size all ready to go at CNBC HQ in Englewood Cliffs, NJ. (Do the production assistants only get twin size?).

This has become somewhat of a tradition for Caruso-Cabrera, who Tweeted the air mattress situation during Hurricane Irene last year.
