    In Memoriam: Mark Haines

    Vintage Mark Haines was his creation of the Alan Greenspan "brief case indicator" on Federal Reserve meeting days.  What began in the mind of Mark Haines as a satire on the mystery and opaque workings of the Federal Reserve....took on a life of its own.

    In Memoriam: Mark Haines

    I am so saddened by Mark Haines passing, he was far too young and had so much left to accomplish in life. He had an uncanny ability to ask the "right question" as well as a quick wit. More importantly, he was a good person.

  • Mike Huckman: He Had Gravitas and Credibility Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 2:17 PM ET

    That interview got a lot of media play and was a seminal moment in my CNBC career. But what gave me the most gratification was that now I was a member of the "Mark Haines Club."

  • David Zaslav: A Lion's Growl but a Great Heart Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 1:50 PM ET

    I negotiated Mark's first deal and we had a long talk about the fact that he had gone to law school and never loved the law and that broadcasting was his passion... and it must have been, because when we hired Mark, he worked for very little money, but he was always happy.

  • Bob Wright: He Was a Cornerstone of CNBC Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 1:05 PM ET

  • Jeff Zucker: He Was an Original Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 12:40 PM ET

    He was an original. In every sense. As a producer, what I loved about Mark was that he was truly authentic, and never pretended to be anything but who he was.

    In Memoriam: Mark Haines

    Mark Haines: unique, talented, brilliant.  A curmudgeon, a pro, erudite and beloved.

  • Bertha Coombs: He Came to Work in Sweatpants and Crocs Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 12:05 PM ET

    This is a guy who didn't put on airs. He came to work in ratty sweatpants and god-awful bright-colored Crocs. He didn't suffer fools, but at the end of the day he really was always fair.

  • Herb Greenberg: Taught Me a Lesson About Disagreeing Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 11:58 AM ET

    To Mark, on air, I was ‘Erb (he dropped the “H”) and since my return he always introduced me saying something like, “Now let’s pay a visit to ‘Erb’s Garden.” I loved it! (Any nickname from Mark was coveted.)

  • Phil LeBeau: Nicknaming Me On-Air Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 11:23 AM ET

    More than once Mark and I sparred on air about what was happening with the Big Three as they were losing billions of dollars.  I loved those exchanges.

  • Jane Wells: Growing Tomatoes and Puttering Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 11:02 AM ET

    Mark was not the sort of guy who would come running over to say hello when I dropped in for a visit to CNBC headquarters. If I saw him in a hallway, he'd shout "Janie!" on his way to one of his infamous smoking breaks and keep on walking.  I loved it.

  • Darren Rovell: Haines Was Your Everyman Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 10:42 AM ET
