CNBC says goodbye to Kudlow
CNBC said goodbye to senior contributor and former anchor Larry Kudlow, who is becoming director of the White House National Economic Council, on Wednesday.
First, anchor Kelly Evans read a statement from CNBC chairman Mark Hoffman:
Larry is a thoughtful, tenacious and gracious gentleman who possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of markets, economics and public policy. He has the unique ability to make the most complex concepts comprehensible and accessible. Larry’s been part of the fabric of CNBC since our founding in 1989. We thank him for his many contributions and wish him well.
Then Kudlow said:
I talked to Mark Today. It is extremely kind. The last 25 years of my life have been tied up with CNBC, which changed my life, changed my profession, and it’s been a family to me. And, however this thing works out, it will be God’s will if there’s an opportunity when my service is complete, I hope very much to come back and help CNBC. It is my family, and it’s changed my life. And CNBC also, years back, gave me a second chance after my crash and burn. Ron Insana and Bill Griffeth. And next thing I knew, I was in the rotation. And next thing I knew one night I was sitting on air with Jimmy Cramer. We didn’t know what we were doing.
