As TVNewser first speculated yesterday, CNBC has announced an expansion of “Squawk Box,” including a new “tri-anchor format” and a “Squawk on the Street” set at the New York Stock Exchange. Here is the press release.
Beginning Dec. 19, the “ensemble-formatted” Squawk will air from 6 to 10am. Joe Kernen, Becky Quick and former NBC News correspondent Carl Quintanilla will tri-anchor the program. Mark Haines will host a 9am live “Squawk on the Street” show from a new set at the New York Stock Exchange.
