The Squawking Dead
OK, we had a lot of fun on Halloween this year and almost all of it's worth a second look (or a first look if you missed it)! So I'll begin, at the beginning, with our "Squawking Dead" custom show open as seen on our Facebook page (big shout-out to the CNBC graphics department who rocked this animation for us). It was just so cool and made Joe Kernen almost as happy as when Daryl (actor Norman Reedus) came on the set a few weeks ago.
We then tacked that on the end of a brilliantly written cold open by 7 a.m. ET producer Matt Greco (follow @mgreco27) and edited by Squawk Video producer Dean Meelarp (follow @dmeelarp) and we had classic Squawk TV production magic.
By the way, there's absolutely no truth to the rumor that the name of this "Talking Squawk" blog was inspired by the post-zombie show "The Talking Dead" on AMC. (And if you believe that, I can also tell you ... if you like your health plan, you can keep it!)
