Erin Burnett Dedicates Her First Show To Mark Haines

Erin Burnett concluded her CNN debut show last night with a dedication to her former CNBC co-host Mark Haines who passed away suddenly in May.

“I wouldn’t here be here without the advice of a special person who died a few months ago my friend Mark Haines.  Mark was my TV partner for five years, my mentor, and my friend.  He made journalism a joy for me.  His intolerance for talking points and his fun-loving were out front.  And so wherever you are right now, Mark, this show is for you.”
