CNBC Exec Who Battled Dylan Ratigan Gets the Boot

Jan 24, 2014  •  Post A Comment

One of the top executives at CNBC is reportedly headed out the door. The New York Post’s Page Six reports that the cable channel opted not to renew the contract of Susan Krakower, senior vice president of strategic programming and development.

CNBC President Mark Hoffman reportedly told Krakower she’s “too hard on the furniture,” meaning too rough on the talent, the story says.

Krakower is known for a battle with former CNBC host Dylan Ratigan, who said about her during a commercial break, “If you want to pull me off the show, please do. [You are] rude and disrespectful,” according to the piece. Ratigan left the network shortly after that incident, the report notes.

Krakower is said to be in talks to join Morgan Stanley, although a CNBC representative said she remains under contract at the network, according to the report.
