Who Is the Real Morning Joe?

Kernen_4.16.jpgThis morning, GE honcho turned cable news mainstay Jack Welch was the guest host on CNBC’s Squawk Box. But Joe Kernen broke the news he preferred the other Welch.

Kernen: You were our second choice. (Suzy Welch) is busy, I guess.

Welch: She’s over on “Morning Joe.”

Kernen: I Know. “Morning Joe.” He’s been on two years and he’s Morning Joe. I’ve been on 13 and I’m chopped liver. That’s fine, Scarborough.


Kernen: am I not the real morning Joe?

Welch: You are to me.

Kernen: Thank you. So tactful.
