Bill is a long-time fixture at the network. Those of you who are constant CNBC watchers will recall he decided a little over a year ago to take some time off to travel. His favorite trip? He told me it was visiting the Midwest town where his family first laid down its roots nearly a century ago. Cool.
Of course, Bill put in some appearances prior to this. You'll recall he handled some town halls for us during the mid-term elections.
It's good to have him back. And for those of you who wrote in with all those conspiracy theories and accusations ... despite our statements to the contrary ... a big raspberry to you.
