Warren Buffett Live on CNBC's 'Squawk Box' Tomorrow


Warren Buffett will be live on CNBC's "Squawk Box" tomorrow (Wednesday) for a two-hour interview with Becky Quick starting at 7a ET.

Later in the day he'll be speaking to GE Capital's National Middle Market Summit at Ohio State's Fisher College of Business.

It will be his first TV interview since completing a series of radiation treatments for prostate cancer.

Becky tells me she will be asking Buffett if Berkshire Hathaway is seeing the same slowing global economy we've heard about this past week from companies like 3M, United Technologies, and DuPont.

Other topics likely to be on the agenda include the presidential debates and next month's election, his controversial call for higher tax rates on the very rich, the health of the U.S. economy, and his thoughts on the markets.

Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway owned about five million shares of General Electric as of the end of the second quarter. That stake, reduced by 36 percent from the end of the first quarter, would be worth just over $106 million now.

During the height of the credit crisis in 2008, Buffett cut a deal in which Berkshire effectively loaned GE $3 billion. That loan was repaid at a profit of about $1.2 billion last year, but Berkshire still holds warrants to buy $3 billion worth of GE common stock at $22.25 a share.

We'll have complete coverage of the interview here on Warren Buffett Watch.

Disclosure: General Electric is a minority owner of NBCUniversal, CNBC's parent.
