I doubt this has much to do with new ownership. cNBC has had several hosts/anchors move on to other networks its common to the industry. The loss of Mr. Haines was certainly a shock. As near as I can tell they have plenty of people to spread around as most of the business day shows have multiple hosts. There is always a transition period as people shuffle. It took me months to stop grumping when they broke up the original Squawk gang and created two shows.

The whole network is a huge franchise with several competitors that are barely nipping at their heals. I suspect they will weather the current situation.

Squawk box always has a guest host.
