Dylan Ratigan Leaves Business News
I like watching Business News. So, the other day I was not suprised to find out that Dylan Ratigan left CNBC effective immediately as he displays a kind of candor and authenticity that I just don't get from most political commentary and business-related shows.
In my view he oozed more professionalism and know-how than most moderators out there. Plus, he is definitely watchable.
The effects of recession are easily witnessed on the airwaves as well. I suppose Ratigan will get his own show soon. Let's hope it's not at 9:00.
A bit from HuffPo notes:
"Dylan Ratigan has left CNBC effective immediately, network spokesperson Brian Steel told TVNewser.
The New York Post's Page Six reported Friday that Ratigan had quit following a dispute with network VP Susan Krakower — though insiders deny to TV Newser that Krakower is responsible for Ratigan's exit:
"It's less about Krakower and more about him," says the source. "He wants to be the next Letterman."
Steel told TVNewser that Ratigan's departure is a mutual decision and said, "Due to the serious economic times in which we live, we made a decision that it would be a distraction for Dylan to host 'Fast Money' today."
