Longtime CNBC correspondent Mike Huckman is leaving the network, and heading to the world of PR. Huckman, who covers pharmaceuticals, biotech and medical devices for the business channel, is joining MS&L as senior VP and director of media strategy. Manhattan-based MS&L is part of the Publicis Groupe.
“After nearly 10 great years at CNBC and nearly 27 years in TV news I have decided to leave the media business for an exciting second act,” Huckman tells TVNewser.
It might be another month or so before Huckman signs off CNBC where he’s covered the medical beat for the last eight years.
