In the just released November 2011 ratings, CNBC’s Business Day programming (9am-5pm) is up +31% in A25-54 viewers. The network’s midday show, “Street Signs” up +29% in younger viewers. Last November the show was anchored by Erin Burnett, now with CNN. This year, it’s an ensemble of Mandy Drury, Brian Sullivan, Herb Greenberg and the occasional drop-in by Jim Cramer.
Drury calls what she’s doing now her dream job. “It was my dream to come to New York,” says the Australian native Drury in part III of our Media Beat interview. “As a business journalist, there’s probably only a few cities in the world where you can get as much of a stimulating challenge as I have now.” WATCH:

People across the country today participated in “Spirit Day,” wearing purple as a sign of support for LGBT youth.

On the morning shows:
On ABC’s “Good Morning America,” George Stephanopoulos and Robin Roberts participated, as did Ann Curry and Al Roker on NBC’s “Today.” All four co-hosts on “The View” — Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Elisabeth Hasselbeck — were decked out in purple as well.

Last week, before the sad news about Mark Haines‘ untimely passing, CNBC had a moment of levity.
Jim Cramer and Herb Greenberg faced off in a taste test, to determine who made better soda: Coca Cola or a startup called Soda Stream. Soda Stream is similar to those single cup coffee makers, but instead of making coffee, the machine makes soda.
The results may surprise you, they certainly surprised Greenberg:
Texas KBTV’s Nick Kosir is blowin up, son.
His …offbeat style of delivering the forecast has gotten some notice:
Greenberg has been a financial journalist for more than 30 years and was most recently co-president of Greenberg Meritz Research & Analytics. He is a former weekend investor columnist for The Wall Street Journal and a former senior columnist for MartketWatch.
Kelly has been a staff reporter for The Wall Street Journal for nearly ten years covering Goldman Sachs, Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers and Morgan Stanley as well as the movie business and the New York Stock Exchange.
