Kernen came to CNBC in the 1991 merger with Financial News Network, having joined FNN after a 10-year career as a stockbroker. After training at Merrill Lynch, he rose to the level of vice-president at both EF Hutton and Smith Barney. Focusing on small-to-medium-sized corporations, he managed corporate cash accounts and qualified retirement plans in addition to key employees' personal assets.

During his graduate studies, he worked at the MIT Center for Cancer Research, one of the world's premier institutions. His work focused on mouse erythroleukemia cells and resulted in a series of publications in well-known scientific journals including CELL, Developmental Biology and Cold Spring Harbor Symposia on Quantitative Biology.
