Dennis Kneale will not have his contract renewed at CNBC, barring some kind of last-minute shift, According to Jeff Bercovici.Back in June, Kneale left Power Lunch and took on a kind of floating, nebulous role as a media and tech correspondent.

His tenure has been characterised by controversial fights with bloggers, and even CNBC itself.

Kneale is paid $500k/year according to Bercovici. Were he to stay, his salary would probably be much lower.
