Squawk on the Street


  • Sharon Epperson: I Am Stunned by This News Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 5:12 PM ET

    The NYSE may have been the Mark's home for the many years that he anchored "Squawk on the Street" from that floor, but he also found his way into the hearts of many of the traders here at the Nymex.

  • Sue Herera: It Was an Honor to Work with Mark Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 4:46 PM ET

  • Rick Santelli: To Me, Mark Was Always Larger Than Life Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 4:36 PM ET

    My heart goes out to the the family of Mark Haines. I was saddened and shocked when I first heard of Mark's passing. To me, Mark was always larger than life, both in stature and on air.

    Mark Haines was CNBC, and CNBC was Mark Haines.  I learned this from Mark himself and the countless people who gave me their opinions of CNBC when they found out I worked there.

  • Tyler Mathisen: He Was Always Himself Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 4:23 PM ET

    The word I've heard more today about Mark Haines than any other is "authentic." He was surely that.

    In Memoriam: Mark Haines

    Through him, I learned how to stop speaking in paragraphs and pages in the pathological way most academics communicate. Instead, he forced informality, crispness, and candor. He pretended to be a “young curmudgeon” but was really a revolutionary with his rare, unscripted authenticity.

  • David Faber: Great Skill as Interviewer Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 3:49 PM ET

    You might not know when it would come, but you didn’t want to miss it when it did: that moment in an interview conducted by Mark Haines when he would cast a skeptical eye at his subject and bear down with that baritone voice in a relentless, but perfectly acceptable way and demand an answer.

  • CEO NBCUniversal and Executive VP, Comcast Steve Burke Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 3:28 PM ET

    A fixture on CNBC since the network's beginning and a welcome daily presence to countless loyal viewers, Mark brought to his work a wonderful mix of intelligence and gruff charm. He helped define not only CNBC but the entire genre of televised business news.

  • Julia Boorstin: Mark Haines Was an Intimidating Figure Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 3:25 PM ET

    For a young reporter making the move from print to TV, Mark Haines was an intimidating figure. A grizzled veteran of the medium, he didn't suffer fools and took evident pleasure in putting both reporters and guests on the spot.

    Mark would have been embarrassed had I told him to his face, but he was an inspiration.

    In Memoriam: Mark Haines

    This is a very sad day for CNBC. Without Mark we are not as smart and we are not as funny. He will be greatly missed.

  • Mark Haines: CME Group Remembers Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 2:57 PM ET
    In Memoriam: Mark Haines

    All of us at CME Group are extremely saddened by the loss of Mark Haines.  He was a true media pioneer who put financial reporting at the forefront of the 24 hour news cycle. We have enjoyed the opportunities we have had to work with him in the past.

    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.

  • Maria Bartiromo: He Was a Pioneer, Mentor, Hero Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 2:26 PM ET

    We launched Squawk Box together in 1994 and we were proud of delivering something new and something valuable to viewers.

  • 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

    We have enjoyed his company on and off air for many, many years. He is a legend in the business of financial news and it was an honor knowing him.

  • Alan Greenspan: An Engaging Television Presence Wednesday, 25 May 2011 | 12:47 PM ET

    Mark Haines had such an engaging television presence that it is difficult to envision whom CNBC will find to fill his shoes.

  • 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.
