You can now catch her on Fox Business Channel.

I watch any channel that has Jack Bogle as a guest. He seems to pop up on the three main ones that we get (Bloomberg, CNBC and FBC) on a semi-regular basis. I also drop in on BizTV (YouToo) occasionally .

Are you asking about announcers or viewers?

My personal opinion would be that women viewers looking for male TelePrompter eye candy are probably going to be more disappointed than the male viewers are. Even if they did make the weigh-in you are still having to deal with grey hair, chrome domes, and bad hairpieces!

Eh, I am way too distracted by the numbers on the screen to pay any attention to what the people look like.

They ran some footage with Sue in it, I think it was mid or late 90's (maybe Maria's last day?) and I was shocked. It's hard to believe that's the same person.

MCC has always struck me as having a witch face. Long pointed nose something about her eyes, mouth the whole facial structure. She can look nice sometimes and other times down right scary!

Herrera and Caruso-Cabrera will never be the sex symbols that Cashin, Cramer, and Kudlow are.

I think of CNBC more as "Welcome To Myrtle Manor, Wall Street Edition".

I guess I am the only one who likes to look at Becky Quick. She would be a real stunner with some augmentation surgery.

CNBC is easy to avoid when you have neither cable nor satellite TV service.

She has an annoying practice of raising her eyebrows. That's what the girls in high school did to flirt.

DW still does that to me, especially if what I am doing is not going her way...

I mean the multiple raise and lower. The "Hey, sailor!" one. She may be Quick, but she's not in high school anymore.

I watch Morning Joe in the am and the switch to CNBC at 8:00 ct. I enjoy the interviews and I love Rick S.

These women have all aged.

Sometimes early in the morning, they have some reporters from Asia or Europe chat with the Squawk Box crew. Some of them are very young, like mid 20s or younger.

You have to give CNBC some credit for getting some elites to appear on the show. Becky established a rapport with Buffett so it was kind of a coup for her. She's not overtly political like a lot of other personalities on CNBC though will not go along with every ideological indulgences that Kernan resorts to.

If you look at the CNBC app., it's funny how in the space of a few days, they'd have interviews with a lot of "market strategists" predicting the market or the economy is going to soar or collapse.

It's entertainment for me. I can't think of a single transaction I've made based on what I saw on the channel. But if you're trading more frequently, then it probably has more educational value.

It may help if you marry the producer.

The only things I watch on CNBC are American Greed sometimes and 60 Minutes on CNBC.
