Former NBCU Chairman Bob Wright and former CNBC anchor Felicia Taylor at a CNBC Anniversary party coordinated by some of the channel’s original employees.

This afternoon about 200 CNBC originals gathered in Times Square for their own 20th Anniversary party – one that did not include the people currently running the NBC cable business channel.

Former CNBC anchor Ted David, who’s been planning the event over the last two months, told the raucous crowd, “Frankly, there’s a guy across the river who thinks he made this happen. There’s a guy across the street who thinks he made this happen. And we know, [and the crowd joined in on this last part] we made it happen.”

[The reference to the "guy across the street" is to Roger Ailes who became president of CNBC in 1993, and would later found Fox News and Fox Business.]
