    I loved Simon. He was one of my favorites. I’m very sad about this. Too bad that disgusting blowhard Joe Kernen can’t be the one leaving.

    Simon was a true journalist who asked the tough questions and yet balanced it with a wonderful personality.

    No loss. Hard to understand at times. Tough interviewer making the people he interviewed uneasy. Glad he’s not there anymore!!

    Was sad to see Mr. Hobbs leave. Always courteous and insightful, energetic and smiling. Best of luck to him.

    And Joe Kiernan where is that beautiful bright redhead Daughter of yours? Is it not time to bring her back for a short stint at CNBC?

    Sorry to see Simon Hobbs go.
    CNBC should have let Joe Kiernan go. He is obnoxious to everyone if they do not agree with his political views. He just talks over people not allowing them to speak. How rude! Shame on you CNBC for allowing him to continue this unprofessional approach.
