Bill Griffeth Taking 1-YR Sabatical from CNBC's Power Lunch

CNBC's Bill Griffeth to play golf, travel, work on books and relax.

Today is Bill Bill Griffeth's last day on CNBC as the co-host of "Power Lunch." As he signed off for the year, he gave a big hug to Sue Herera and Michelle Caruso-Cabrera.

Bill Griffeth and long-time co-host, Sue Herera, have been excellent reporters who do the job of reporting the news, not trying to make the news by arguing with their guests as so many others on CNBC seem to do.

Bill gave this message to Managing Editor Allen Wastler:
"First let me address all of the conspiracy theories: I'm not sick, I'm not being pushed out, and I'm not going on Dancing With The Stars. It's pretty straightforward. My wife and I are new empty-nesters, so after 28 years of doing business on TV now seems like a good time to take a break, do some traveling, work on a couple of book projects, and shave strokes off of my golf handicap. I will probably turn up on the air from time to time during the year, so I'll still see you around."
Bill will be missed. He and Joe Kernan are two of the more professional reporters on CNBC that interview the guests so the views of the guests are communicated. Two of his three co-hosts, Michelle Caruso-Cabrera and Dennis Kneale, should get her own shows like Larry Kudlow if they think shouting their politics over the few seconds their guests have to share their ideas is more important to viewers than hearing what the guests have to say.

  1. I think Bill was the best fill in Lou Rukeyser had.

  2. You are right Steve! I forgot about that. I think Bill could have continued Lou's tradition or rational discourse with only one guest at a time talking.

    Instead, CNBC went to a style of guests and hosts shouting over each other with the loudest hosts, Jim Cramer and Larry Kudlow specifically, getting their own shows.
