CNBC’s Tribute to Mark Haines

Joe Kernen, Carl Quintanilla and David Faber hosted last night’s tribute special to Mark Haines, who died Tuesday night. A cause of death has not been revealed. Kernen and Faber were fixtures with Haines on the original “Squawk Box” in the early days of CNBC.

Scott Cohn reported the lead-off obituary story, which had a technical glitch midway through, the remainder of which was played later.

Haines’ co-hosts over the years on “Squawk on the Street”, Melissa Lee, Simon Hobbs, and Erin Burnett, who left CNBC earlier this month, all shared memories of Haines from the floor of the NYSE — showing video of his office, including a shirt which still had its IFB cord hanging from the collar.

Jim Cramer, host of “Mad Money” talked about when he joined the network: “I was a nobody. Haines made me somebody.”

Cable News Channels, Anchors and Reporters Pay Tribute to CNBC’s Mark Haines

The news of CNBC anchor Mark Haines‘ death has been reverberating through the TV news business, and a number of other cable news channels took time out of their programming to pay tribute.

On Fox News Channel, former CNBC anchor Martha MacCallum said of Haines on “America’s Newsroom”: “He will be missed by so many in this business, he was one of the pioneers of the financial business news coverage, and a great market reporter, who worked at the stock exchange for many years and we will miss him.”

On CNBC competitor Fox Business Network, Stuart Varney reported the news at 10 AM, and had Nicole Petallides get the reaction from the New York Stock Exchange floor:

CNBC Anchor Mark Haines Passes Away

CNBC’s Mark Haines died last night. His death was announced at 9:53amET during the show that he would normally be anchoring, “Squawk on the Street,” by anchor Carl Quintanilla who read a statement from CNBC president Mark Hoffman.

At this hour, most of CNBC’s coverage is being devoted to Haines’ death, which has come as a shock to colleagues. Haines was 65. A cause of death has not been announced.

Haines joined CNBC in 1989 and was the founding anchor of the network’s signature morning show, “Squawk Box” before moving to “Squawk on the Street.”

Haines, who had a law degree from the University of Pennsylvania Law School and was a member of the New Jersey State Bar, had been a news anchor for KYW-TV in Philadelphia, WABC-TV in New York, and WPRI-TV in Providence.

It was Haines who delivered an emotional goodbye to his longtime co-anchor Erin Burnett less than three weeks ago as Burnett departed for CNN.

> More: Burnett phoned in to CNBC’s coverage at 10:50am to share her thoughts: “One of the most important things I learned was just that generosity and graciousness he showed that first day.” And about her final day on CNBC: “It was an unforgettable moment in my life and I’m glad we had it. I’m glad we had it.”

> More: Bob Pisani reads a statement from the NYSE: “Mark was an outstanding colleague and will be missed.”

> More: FBN achor Liz Claman who co-anchored with Haines on CNBC’s “Morning Call” from 2003-2007, and who was given the nickname “La Liz” by Haines, writes, “The day I left, he called me and said, ‘I’ll miss you, kid.’ I cried that day, as I do today. I miss you too, Mark. You remain unmatched in your unfailing ability to see through the noise and nonsense so many people spew out today. You were the benchmark of honesty. Thank you for that.”

CNBC will produce a special on Mark Haines tonight at 7pmET.

Donald Trump takes on CNBC’s Simon Hobbs, NBC’s Michael Isikoff, The New York Times and, and, and

A week after Erin Burnett left her perch at CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street” her temp replacement Simon Hobbs got an earful from Donald Trump. It stems from today’s Michael Barbaro story in The New York Times.

The conversation started with anchor Mark Haines asking Trump about the piece, and got heated when Hobbs drilled Trump further about how this all factors in with his potential run for president.

But it was mostly Trump ferociously trashing the story, the New York Times, Barbaro, (who was supposed to be on as well, but canceled at the last minute) even NBC’s investigative correspondent: “Michael Isikoff is one of the worst reporters that I’ve ever done business with,” said Trump who was on by phone.

At one point, Trump says, “I’m a big fan of Mark [Haines], then, about Hobbs, “I don’t know who I’m talking to here.” “That’s Simon,” says Haines. “Okay Simon. Hello Simon. Whoever you are Simon.”

Erin Burnett’s Teary CNBC Sign-off

It takes a lot for grizzled CNBC veteran Mark Haines to get teary. This morning he did when he said goodby to his “Squawk on the Street” co-host Erin Burnett this morning.

After presenting him with a few gifts and a card, which she told him he couldn’t read on the air, a choked-up Haines said, “Give me your hand. Coming to work for the last 5 1/2 years has been an absolute joy. You are the best. The absolute best. We wish you the best of luck. We’re going to miss you a lot.” Burnett, choked up herself saying, “I feel the same way.”

Burnett is leaving CNBC for CNN early next month in an as-yet announced timeslot. Burnett still has one more hour to go, hosting “Street Signs” this afternoon. A new anchor for either show has not been named, though CNBC just snagged Brian Sullivan from FBN, so look for a slot for him in market hours.

In addition to Burnett departing, her show producer Rich Carolan is also leaving CNBC. TVNewser has learned he’s going to be managing director at Burson Marsteller. The same PR firm where former CNBC reporter Jim Goldman now works.

A rising star at NBC, Burnett often filled in on “Today,” was a staple on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and also appeared on “Meet the Press” and “The Apprentice.”

Any chance at moving to a high-profile anchor role at NBC seemed to go by the wayside as “Today” is poised to name Ann Curry the co-anchor, Natalie Morales news anchor and Savannah Guthrie national correspondent.

Snooki, The Situation, J-Woww and the rest Ring Opening Bell

Shore_7.28.jpg

The cast of “Jersey Shore,” “The Situation,” Ronnie, Sammi, DJ Pauly D, “Snooki,” Vinny, “J-Woww,” and Angelina ring The Opening Bell at the NYSE.

Quite a scene on the business channels this morning as the cast of MTV’s “Jersey Shore” rang the opening bell. CNBC’s Erin Burnett mentioned that the NYSE had run out of guest passes for access to the floor — nieces and daughters of some of Jersey’s finest traders, no doubt. Burnett’s co-anchor Mark Haines mentioned the cast was not allowed to talk to anyone on the floor. And Fox Business Network anchor Stuart Varney was proud not to know the cast members by name. “Which one is Snooki?”

The second season of the hit MTV show begins Thursday night.
