Breaking News: Herb Greenberg Resigns CNBC

Monday, July 14, 2008 | 12:00 PM

Here's some sad news that has yet to hit the wires: Herb Greenberg has resigned as a full-time contributor to CNBC. (No, he's not going to Fox Business).

Here's what Herb wrote to CNBC:

Just an FYI: I’ve pulled myself out of the contributor rotation to focus exclusively on my business, which has become more-than-a-fulltime job. It wasn’t an easy decision to walk away. I’ll still be available from time to time as a non-contributor guest, as time permits, and I remain committed to CNBC. 

Herb will be missed on CNBC -- he is a skeptical voice of reason who oftentimes doubts the nonsense spin we hear all too frequently from corporate executives. And, he's been proven right far too many times to ignore. He will be missed.

Herb's new firm is called Greenberg Meritz, and the focus will be "Bridging Financial Journalism and Forensic Analysis."

We wish him luck at his new venture, and if he ever wants to get some info out to a wider distribution, our doors are always open . . .

Hi Barry,

Thanks for the kind words. I hate to see the words "resign" when I really just went to them and said that I have a conflict of time and interest. The "time" is obvious: I have too little and will have less going forward, especially after our website goes live in a week or two (though it will be accessible by subscribers, only.)

The "interest" is more problematic since I felt myself thinking more about whether I would offend prospective or current subscribers rather than saying, perhaps, what I really felt.

I'd rather pull myself off the air than pull punches.
