Mark Haines: Hugh Johnson Remembers

I have been very fortunate to have known Mark so well since the time he first joined CNBC.

In Memoriam: Mark Haines
In Memoriam: Mark Haines

I will fondly remember our many “chats” on the set in the early morning hours and his curmudgeonly humor.

He was the first (and I suspect the last) to call me “Cautiously Cautious Hugh” in the tradition of Damon Runyon. He was always insightful and penetrating; a truly first rate journalist who will be missed by so many who have gotten to know Mark.

I am shocked and very saddened. He will be missed.

My sympathies to all who worked with Mark and, most importantly, to his family and children.

Hugh A Johnson is currently the chairman of Hugh Johnson Advisors LLC.
