CNBC Anchor Mark Haines Dies Unexpectedly

Mark Haines


“Veteran journalist Mark Haines, a fixture on CNBC for 22 years, died unexpectedly Tuesday evening. He was 65 years old.”

I always enjoyed watching Haines and Erin Burnett on Squawk Box, when I had the chance. I caught them a few weeks ago, shortly before Burnett left CNBC.

Now Haines is gone, no word on how, just “suddenly.” Shame. He was really good at what he did, making financial reporting and interviews useful and interesting. I’ll miss both of them when I next have the chance to tune in.
