Barney Frank Cuts CNBC Interview Short

Rep. Barney Frank appeared on CNBC this morning, ahead of today’s executive pay hearing. “We’ll try to keep it brief so you can do the job you’re there to do,” said Mark Haines at the beginning of the interview.

He just didn’t know it would be this brief. After some back-and-forth with Haines (around the five minute mark), Frank got annoyed. “I apologize, but this interview is over,” he said. “I get three different questions, different angles, I try to respond, you want to interrupt because you don’t like what I’m saying, then you can find someone else to interview.”

The Ticker (CNBC Edition): Lee, Huckman, Haines…

> CNBC’s Melissa Lee is featured in this month’s Asiance Magazine. The Harvard grad, who majored in Government, didn’t see herself as a business reporter: “I wanted to cover elections and campaigns and things like that. It was really by chance that I got into Business news.”

> Here’s a lesson about being nice to the interns. CNBC’s Mike Huckman writes about a “hard working” intern he crossed paths with when he was a reporter in Tucson. That former intern got a really big promotion this weekend.

CNBC Puts Economy First For Election Night

CNBCSet_11.4.JPGWe stopped in to CNBC Global Headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, NJ this afternoon as crews prepare to cover tonight’s election returns.

We chatted with CNBC anchor Erin Burnett as she prepped for Street Signs. Correspondent Hampton Pearson is up from Washington, DC and John Harwood will be on hand tonight as well.

“In an election where the economy is a big story, if not the big story, we are a logical place turn turn, because that’s all we do,” says CNBC senior VP Jonathan Wald.

CNBC’s Election Night programming begins at 7pmET with anchors Mark Haines and Burnett. Dylan Ratigan and Maria Bartiromo pick up coverage at 8pm followed by Carl Quintanilla and Bartiromo at 9, with Michelle Caruso-Cabrera picking up at 10.

So, what about after the election? How will CNBC hold on to those viewers? Wald talks about that, after the jump. First, Sandy Cannold, EP of Squawk on the Street as well as the prime time election special, gives us a tour of the studio.
