Mark Haines: Bob Wright Remembers
Our heartfelt sorrow to Cindy, Matthew and Meredith on Mark's passing.
Mark was a corner stone of CNBC from the very beginning he was the founding anchor of Squawk Box.
Mark was a television personality, lawyer, business critic and insightful interviewer, his eye was always on the small investor.
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.
