About Squawk Blog
Squawk Box has a new companion blog: SquawkBlog
If you follow the financial markets, you're probably familiar with CNBC's Squawk Box crew of Joe Kernen, Mark Haines, David Faber, Steve Liesman and Becky Quick. Anyway, the popular Squawk Box TV program recently launched a companion SquawkBlog using MSN Spaces. SquawkBlog is not updated that frequently (or at least, not as frequently as one might expect from a financial markets blog), but it was first out of the box with several breaking news stories, like the resignation of Morgan Stanley's Stephen Crawford. There's also a daily supply of new photos and a link to Larry Kudlow's Money Politic$ blog.
Anyway, in late May, TVNewser caught up with Squawk Box senior producer Matt Quayle for his take on how SquawkBlog ties in with Squawk Box:
"It's like The Today Show for business -- it's a morning show for business news junkies and investors, and it's the show of record -- it used to be for many many years -- and I want to return it to that. Getting to know the personalities on the show is a very important aspect of that... It's only been a week, but I think it's going pretty well. The goal is interactivity: To give the viewers more access to what I think is the best aspect of the show, which is the talent."
