CNBC’s Michelle Caruso-Cabrera ‘You Know I’m Right’

TVNewser attended the book party for CNBC’s Michelle Caruso-Cabrera last night. The book, “You Know I’m Right: More Prosperity, Less Government,” is Caruso-Cabrera’s solution to what we should do about the economic and societal hardships of today.

Caruso-Cabrera, who co-anchors “Power Lunch” with Sue Herera and Tyler Mathisen, was proud of the turnout. “My colleagues all came out from New Jersey,” Caruso-Cabrera told TVNewser, “and some of them never come out.”

Among the guests: Jack Welch, former chairman and CEO of CNBC parent General Electric, and his wife Suzy Welch; fellow CNBC anchors Melissa Francis, Joe Kernen, and Tyler Mathisen made an appearance.

Florida Runs Your News

florida_9-2.jpgGrowing up in South Florida, I should have known I would someday end up somehow involved in TV news. For better or worse, the state of Florida — and in particular the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale market — has had maybe the biggest impact on the television news industry outside New York and LA.

For one, the number of major national anchors who did stints in South Florida will astound you. CNN’s Larry King and “60 Minutes” correspondent Steve Kroft both did stints at WPLG very early in their careers. King also once worked at current NBC O&O WTVJ, where Katie Couric would later be a general assignment reporter.

“Get this,” says current-HLN anchor and former Miami anchor/health reporter Robin Meade. “When I was at WSVN in 1994-ish, I did the mornings. Rick Sanchez was the main anchor at the station. Shepherd Smith was a street reporter for the same channel. Linda Stouffer (former HLN anchor) was the weekend morning anchor. And Charles Molineaux (former HLN anchor) was my co-anchor in the morning. Soon after I left, I believe Shawn Robinson started doing the mornings there before heading to access Hollywood.”

CNBC’s Bill Griffeth Signs Off… For Now

Griffeth_11.25.jpgIt was an emotional send-off for one of the CNBC originals this afternoon. As we first reported earlier this month, “Power Lunch” co-anchor Bill Griffeth is taking a leave of absence from CNBC for the next year.

Griffeth got a round of applause from the newsroom and hugs from his co-anchors Sue Herera and Michelle Caruso-Cabrera as he told the audience, “Life is a multi-legged stool and your job is only one of those legs. So, do take the time… have the courage, take the time to do something for yourself. I know I am fortunate to take the whole year off, but even if it’s not a whole year, take some time off for yourself.”

TVNewser Doesn’t Understand Basic Economics

cnbcchicken9-18.jpgWe just got TOLD by CNBC’s Michelle Caruso-Cabrera.

Yesterday, TVNewser pointed out a kind of hilarious segment on CNBC’s “Power Lunch” about chicken feet that concluded with Caruso-Cabrera saying, “Because American chickens have bigger breasts, so they must have bigger feet to hold them up.”

Well, because we were busy being so gosh darn snarky, we apparently missed the global economic implications of the chicken foot market. Something Caruso-Cabrera calls TVNewser out on specifically in a CNBC post today:

Although we explained very clearly why it mattered as a business story, I’ll do it again for our general-media brethren who often fail to understand basic economics and business news.

SMACK! She explains that large chicken breasts mean large chicken feet and China LOVES our fat chicken feet so much that they could prevent a trade war and “ALL AMERICANS SHOULD FEAR A TRADE WAR. Trade wars, and tariffs for that matter, make recession worse.”

Well then.

Breasts & Bombs (the F kind) Drop on TV

CNBC_9.17.pngAt the end of CNBC’s Power Lunch today, Sue Herera was reading a story about Chinese chickens vs. American chickens (don’t ask, apparently that’s an important business story). Anyway, Herera says, “American chicken feet tend to be larger and plumper than other chicken feet around the world, because Americans like more white meat chicken, so the feet are bred to be bigger and it costs more to buy them.”

So Michelle Caruso Cabrera chimes in: “Because American chickens have bigger breasts, so they must have bigger feet to hold them up.” Bill Griffith jumps in, “Well it’s time to go. Look at the clock.”

We don’t have that video. But we do have the clip of a slip from New York’s FOX 5 anchor Ernie Anastos also, oddly, involving chickens. He apparently meant to say, “Keep plucking that chicken.” But, he didn’t.

See it after the jump, and pay close attention to the look on the face of his co-anchor, former Fox News anchor, Dari Alexander

CNBC Toasts Jonathan Wald

Wald_3.31.pngNothing like a little Veuve Clicquot to round out a 16-year career with NBC.

This was Jonathan Wald‘s last day on the job as CNBC SVP. At 4pm, co-workers gathered in the CNBC boardroom for a goodbye toast. In attendance, CNBC president Mark Hoffman, and anchors Michelle Caruso-Cabrera and Margaret Brennan, among others. CNBC’s Pharmaceutical Reporter Mike Huckman Tweeted about it: “At sendoff 4 CNBC VP Biz News Jonathan Wald. He’ll be missed.”

Wald’s first job with NBC News was in 1983 as a desk assistant. His father, Richard, is a past president of the news division.

It’s not known where Wald’s next stop will be, but the NYPost reports at least two venerable names in news are in the mix to fill the vacancy, including former ABC/CNNer Victor Neufeld who, the Post reports, interviewed for the job last Friday.

Ron Insana Returns to CNBC

Insana_3.2.jpgCNBC veteran Ron Insana has rejoined the network as a senior analyst. Insana’s first appearance was during today’s Power Lunch.

“Look who’s back?” said Bill Griffeth, “Ron Insana.”

“Seems like an interesting time to get back into the market,” said Insana, adding, “Most of my timing over the last three years has not entirely been in my control.”

Insana left a primary anchor slot on the network in 2006, for a senior analyst role while also forming Insana Capital Partners. Insana Partners ceased operations in August 2008 when Insana joined a Connecticut-based hedge fund. That move precluded him from appearing on CNBC.

And it appears CNBCers are happy to have him back. During a tease of his segment, Insana got a “Whoo-hoo! Yay” from Power Lunch co-co-co-anchor Michelle Caruso-Cabrera.

Power Lunch Town Hall

CNBC_2.12.jpgToday CNBC’s Power Lunch devotes its first hour to a Town Hall from CNBC headquarters devoted to the financial crisis and where Americans should invest now. (We’re told the mattress is not an option.)

Power Lunch anchors Bill Griffeth, Sue Herera, Michelle Caruso-Cabrera and Dennis Kneale will be joined by Jim Cramer of Mad Money, Jeff Macke of Fast Money and Donny Deutsch and a studio audience of CNBC viewers.

The Town Hall continues at 1pmET on CNBC.com with Managing Editor Allen Wastler taking over.
