It’s a full day of live coverage on CNBC today, despite the markets being closed for the MLK Day holiday. And one of the anchors of Squawk Box, Becky Quick, found herself in Page Six this morning.
Quick…quietly married the show’s executive producer, Matthew Quayle, a few months ago – which has drawn grumbles from co-workers regarding the ethical ramifications. “He is her direct superior, so it’s a little weird,” groans one insider. “She’s definitely been getting preferential treatment since they got together.”
Says a CNBC spokesperson, “All three anchors on ‘Squawk Box’ – Becky Quick, Joe Kernen and Carl Quintanilla – have married CNBC producers. Love is in the air when you’re first in business worldwide.”
Well then, that settles it.
