In what can only be as described as a victory for Reality-Based news programming, I am delighted to see that my buddy Herb is coming back to CNBC !
Herb was one of the rare non-cheerleaders at CNBC. he never drank the Kool Aid, and always had a skeptical view of Wall Street. His presence will balance out some of the more extreme views (fantasy based economics) and be more factually driven.
Herb is a long standing investigative Journalist, rather than doing news flavored chat.
CNBC senior vice president of business news Jeremy Pink said:
We are delighted to have Herb and Kate join the CNBC team. They are two of the smartest, savviest, and well-respected business journalists anywhere.
I’m excited to return to CNBC as a full-time member of the best team in business journalism. I look forward to reconnecting with astute viewers and can’t wait to rejoin the good friends I’ve worked with over the years.
