CNBC senior vice president and editor in chief Nikhil Deogun sent out the following announcement on Friday:
I am pleased to announce that Morgan Brennan will be joining Carl Quintanilla and Jon Fortt as co-anchor of Squawk Alley, effective immediately.
Since joining CNBC as a reporter in 2013, Morgan has impressed all of us with her energy, work ethic and keen storytelling sense. She has eagerly embraced a variety of beats from space and defense to transportation and insurance (yes, insurance!).
With technology imbuing every major company, Morgan will continue covering some of the same beats she currently covers, bringing her reporting firepower to Squawk Alley every day.
Please join me in congratulating Morgan on her new role.
