Popular CNBC anchor Mark Haines dies at 65

Posted:

Mark Haines, a longtime anchor at CNBC, died at his home on Tuesday evening.  He was 65.

CNBC did not disclose the cause of death.

A longtime TV news veteran who did stints in New York City and Philadelphia before attending law school, Mr. Haines joined the then-fledgling CNBC in 1989 and became one of the network's most prominent faces.

In 1995, he became the first host of "Squawk Box," helping to develop the early-morning show into must-see viewing for Wall Street, leavening discussions about fast-moving stocks with banter about pop culture and personalities.

In 2005, he became the co-host of another CNBC morning show, "Squawk on the Street," with Erin Burnett.
