Jeff Macke Officially Out at CNBC

macke_6-15.jpgAfter weeks of speculation over whether he would be leaving the network, TVNewser has confirmed Jeff Macke is out at CNBC.

“Jeff is no longer with CNBC,” says spokesperson Brian Steel. “We wish him all the best, and we thank him for his quality contributions.”

Macke’s appearance on the May 19 CNBC Reports led to rumors he would be off his regular duty at Fast Money. Instead, he was on vacation for a week and returned to the show, appearing through last Friday.

Jeff Macke Out at CNBC?

macke_5-25.jpgFollowing his bizarre on-air comments last week, CNBC contributor Jeff Macke‘s future with the network is in doubt.

Business Insider’s Joe Weisenthal reports Macke will not be back on CNBC, while sources tell TVNewser no decision has been made.

Still, we hear Macke’s appearance on Fast Money the following night was being watched closely by Susan Krakower, the show’s co-creator and CNBC VP. A “backup” trader was ready in case Macke was deemed unable to go on-air.

Macke has not been on CNBC since last Wednesday’s appearance.

A CNBC spokesperson gave TVNewser a “no comment” on the situation.

Jeff Macke: “Either I’ve Gotten Off The Bus in Crazytown…”

Every couple weeks there’s another entertaining on-air CNBC anchor argument, but last night on CNBC Reports was an especially weird one.

Dennis Kneale hosted, but it was Fast Money contributor Jeff Macke who was angry about…something:

Macke: “I’m going to talk to you like a child. Nod if you’re with me.”

Kneale: Nod if you’re with me…I have no idea what you’re saying.

Macke: I’m saying that you’re talking to people who seem crazy, and either I’m a tremendous relief to you, or this is a really elaborate joke on me, but I’m thinking you’re smart enough to get this joke, at this point, 34 minutes into the show when you’ve started talking to auto people, that you’ve gone crazy. Nod.

We’re not nodding. Here’s the clip of the whole exchange:
