Tuning In to TV
Question of the Day
The network said he died in his home. It did not specify the cause of death.
He was the founding anchor of CNBC’s “Squawk Box” morning show. In 2005, he started co-anchoring “Squawk in the Morning,” a 9-to-11 a.m. show, with Erin Burnett, while “Squawk Box” was pushed to an earlier slot. Ms. Burnett recently left CNBC to host a general news show on CNN.
“He was an authentic voice in business media,” said Eric Jackson, who runs the hedge fund Ironfire Capital. “He resonated with so many people because he would speak out, and with opinion. Too often the media lets the corporate PR army and highly trained CEOs get their points across without question. He wouldn’t let that happen.”
“He was trained as an attorney,” Mr. Ritholtz said. “He brought that keen lawyer’s eye to everything he did. It wasn’t something often seen in the financial media.”
Mr. Haines is survived by his wife, Cindy, his son, Matt, and his daughter, Meredith.
CNBC said funeral arrangements have yet to be made.
