CNBC has decided on its new anchors for the 2-hour “Squawk on the Street” morning show. The business channel is tapping several veterans to fill the seat left vacant following the death May 25th of longtime anchor Mark Haines and the departure three weeks earlier of co-anchor Erin Burnett, now at CNN.
Lee continues with “Fast Money” at 5pm. Also, Scott Wapner has been named permanent anchor of “Fast Money Halftime Report” seen at 12:30pmET.
Cramer, who continues hosting “Mad Money,” will appear in the 9amET of “Squawk on the Street,” while Hobbs, who has been filling in on SoS, will co-anchor the 10amET hour with Lee and Quintanilla.
