In case you missed it: Today is my last day as a full-timer at CNBC. Tomorrow my status shifts to CNBC contributor.
It also marks the return to my online roots at TheStreet, where I'll launch a newsletter focused on risk and restart a daily blog.
The decision to leave CNBC was a tough one—as emotionally difficult as when I decided to leave my 10-year gig as a daily business columnist at The San Francisco Chronicle for TheStreet in 1998, where I remained for six years. During that time I was a frequent CNBC guest and contributor before joining full-time a little more than three years ago.
