CNBC has tapped new anchors for its morning show "Squawk on the Street," filling roles that had been vacant following the death in May of longtime anchor Mark Haines and the departure of Erin Burnett for CNN, reports TVNewser.com.
The new anchors are Melissa Lee and Carl Quintanilla, who will co-anchor with contributions from David Faber, Jim Cramer and Simon Hobbs.
The new role moves Quintanilla from "Squawk Box," while Lee will continue with "Fast Money" at 5 p.m., the story says. Cramer will continue to host "Mad Money" while also appearing in the 9 a.m. hour of "Squawk on the Street," the story notes.
Hobbs will co-anchor the 10 a.m. hour with Lee and Quintanilla.
