This weekend is Berkshire Hathaway’s annual shareholders meeting, and the business networks have coverage planned for the company, led by billionaire Warren Buffett.
Of course Buffett will also be giving interviews, both FBN and CNBC are claiming “exclusives.”
Buffett will be appearing first on CNBC Monday morning, where he will be a guest on “Squawk Box” for all three hours of the program from 6-9 AM. At 9:30 AM, Buffett will be appearing in a joint interview with Microsoft founder Bill Gates on FBN.
With Kentucky’s 67-59 win over Kansas last night, March Madness has officially come to an end. That also means that it is time to declare a winner in TVNewser’s 2012 March Madness bracket challenge.
Your 2012 TVNewser bracket challenge winner is…
Fox Business Network stocks editor Liz MacDonald!
“It was great fun going up against really tough competition,” MacDonald says. “I am honored and thrilled to be this year’s champion.”
It was a close match this year, with CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux and Kyra Phillips very close behind MacDonald in the standings. This is the second straight year that a competitor for one of the business news networks won. Last year’s winner was Bloomberg TV’s Dominic Chu. Chu also had a good showing this year, placing ninth.
In last place, tragically, was your humble TVNewser editor, who clearly needs to reevaluate his college basketball picking skills. My strategy of picking teams who had cool mascots (Blue Devils? Awesome!) may not have been the most sound.
A big “Thank You!” to all of this year’s participants.
The final standings are below.
Spring is in the air, and that can only mean two things: March Madness and TVNewser’s 2012 bracket challenge.
Every March we have TV news talent, executives and producers fill out their brackets and make their picks, with the winner receiving the ultimate prize: bragging rights.
Here is your 2012 TVNewser March Madness lineup:
Team Bloomberg TV:
Returning champ: Dominic Chu, markets reporter, Bloomberg TV
Cory Johnson, editor-at-large, Bloomberg TV
Stephanie Ruhle, correspondent, Bloomberg TV
Team Fox News/Fox Business Network:
During the handoff from “Squawk Box” to “Squawk on the Street” this morning, CNBCers Joe Kernen, Becky Quick, Andrew Ross Sorkin, Carl Quintanilla and Melissa Lee were chatting about the new CNBC set at the New York Stock Exchange, which Alex got a look at Wednesday. And it was that story which gave Kernen his first look at the set:
Quintanilla: Have you been down here yet to see it in person?
Kernen: No. I saw it on TVNewser.
Lee: Your source for news about CNBC is TVNewser?
Kernen: That’s where I saw it. I’m too honest.
Not too honest, Joe. Just honest enough.
Perhaps Becky Quick‘s nickname should be the “Business Whisperer”? And do we know what she did last summer?
What TVNewser is hinting at - ever so cleverly - is that it struck us just the other day: Quick bears a striking resemblance to actress Jennifer Love Hewitt. From their hair to the shape of their faces, well, we’re just sayin’.
Quick, by the way, has been back on the airwaves now since November after taking maternity leave for the birth of her baby boy in August.
So what do you think - is Becky Quick a doppelganger for JLH?
After a week of Wall Street gyrations a Quick delivery. CNBC’s “Squawk Box” co-host Becky Quick delivered a baby boy Sunday.
This morning on the show Joe Kernen announced:
Breaking news. Do we have a drum roll? Bouncing baby boy, blond hair. Kyle Nathaniel Quayle and for short, Kye as in pie.
Kye comes in at 6 lbs., 15 oz. And this business of family revolves around CNBC. Quick is married to Matt Quayle — an 18 year CNBC vet — who is the executive producer of “Squawk Box.”
First on TVNewser: CNBC has hired New York Times scribe and DealBook founder Andrew Ross Sorkin to be the new co-anchor of the signature morning program “Squawk Box,” TVNewser has learned.
Sorkin, who has been a contributor on CNBC, will join Becky Quick and Joe Kernen on the show Monday. This past Monday, Carl Quintanilla moved off the three-hour “Squawk Box” to co-anchor the 9amET show “Squawk on the Street.”
> More: CNBC SVP Nik Deogun writes that Sorkin will continue to write his column for The New York Times. “Andrew has long been an extended member of both the CNBC and Squawk families, and we’re pleased he will now be a part of our morning team.”
Full memo after the jump…
On CNBC’s “Squawk Box” this morning, Joe Kernen and Becky Quick spoke to the new anchors of “Squawk on the Street,” Melissa Lee and Carl Quintanilla, as well as contributors David Faber and Jim Cramer.
CNBC has decided on its new anchors for the 2-hour “Squawk on the Street” morning show. The business channel is tapping several veterans to fill the seat left vacant following the death May 25th of longtime anchor Mark Haines and the departure three weeks earlier of co-anchor Erin Burnett, now at CNN.
Lee continues with “Fast Money” at 5pm. Also, Scott Wapner has been named permanent anchor of “Fast Money Halftime Report” seen at 12:30pmET.
Cramer, who continues hosting “Mad Money,” will appear in the 9amET of “Squawk on the Street,” while Hobbs, who has been filling in on SoS, will co-anchor the 10amET hour with Lee and Quintanilla.
