So it really is “Good-Bye Friday.”

CNBC SVP Jeremy Pink is leaving the network. Writes CNBC president Mark Hoffman in an email to staff obtained by TVNewser, “After his successful, decade-long tenure at CNBC on three continents, Jeremy Pink has decided to move on.”

Bartiromo or Burnett: “Who Will Be the Face of CNBC?”

Maria Bartiromo.jpgSome will find it shopworn, but MarketWatch’s Jon Friedman is shining the spotlight once again on the long-running ‘Bartiromo vs. Burnett’ chatter. “The question,” he writes today, “boils down to this: Who will be the face of CNBC?”

Friedman’s renewed focus is because of the arrival in May of new CNBC SVP Jeremy Pink. “Anytime you have a new boss, changes are inevitable,” Friedman tells TVNewser. “The two most prominent people [on-air at the cabler] are Maria and Erin. And they’re very different in their approaches to broadcasting. I’m beginning to wonder if CNBC will follow one or the other.”

Burnett_Erin.jpgAs Friedman asks in his column, “the no-frills, iconic Bartiromo, who has been the top anchor there for many years? Or, can the younger, breezier, fast-charging Burnett over take her? CNBC has to find a way to keep both stars…happy or risk losing one or both of them at some point.”

EP Changes At CNBC

TVNewser has learned CNBC has made some Executive Producer shifts. Jerry Burke, who joined CNBC last summer, moves from EP of Power Lunch to overseeing primetime shows including Larry Kudlow‘s program and CNBC Reports. Sandy Cannold moves from primetime back to dayside and will now oversee Power Lunch and Street Signs.

Insiders tell us these changes were in the works before new SVP Jeremy Pink took over earlier this month.
