The NBCUniversal family is deeply saddened by the news that Mark Haines has passed away.
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.
Our hearts go out to Mark's family and his many friends on their loss.
He will be deeply missed.
