Veteran journalist Mark Haines, a fixture on CNBC for 22 years, died unexpectedly Tuesday evening. He was 65 years old.
Sad passing - even sadder, I understand he was waiting until 70 to collect SS...

Yeah, it's bad enough to die early. But what's really bad is that he never got any SS payments.

I'll bet he also didn't get a chance to spend down the nestegg either.

Mark Haines was my favorite CNBC anchor man. I watched his show almost every morning. What makes it more personal is that he was my age (actually, he was a few months younger) and his long-time partner, Erin Burnett, is the same age as my daughter.

So sorry to hear this. When Erin recently left the show it seemed to crush him. Really sad.

Too bad. His family was probably financially okay without the SS up til now.

I didn't realize she left the show. Was he still on the air after she left? Did he die of a heart attack?

Sad...you really don't know when. So unexpected.

That's why when people ask "Why retire early?" I say "Why not?" if you can

He was one of the financial talking heads actually worth listening to. RIP Mark, I always enjoyed listening to your perspectives.

Very sad, I really enjoy watching him every morning at 9am. I also liked Erin and now they are both gone from the show.

Her last show was May 6th. He stayed on, but I don't recall who the co-host was. Don't know what the cause of death was.

Maybe he died of a broken heart? They were a great team!

I seldom ever watched Mark Haines, I'd tune in early and be doing something else by the time he came on. I had no idea he was such an icon at CNBC. I heard at 1 pm and was shocked. I watched the special last night during the Kudlow time slot and was surprised at how much Mark did in those early years. RIP.
