Joe Kernen        

Co-Anchor, Squawk Box

Joe Kernen is co-anchor of Squawk Box, CNBC's signature morning program airing Monday-Friday 6-9 a.m (ET). Squawk Box is a fast paced, irreverent look at the world of Wall Street, and is the longest running program on the network.

It features early-morning analysis of and breaking news from the financial markets, along with considerable banter between the hosts and their guests. It also features "guest hosts" - figures from the world of business and politics, who join the team for much of the broadcast, questioning guests as well as offering their own opinions.

Prior to joining Squawk Box, Kernen was CNBC's on-air stock editor, and was featured throughout the business day on CNBC. He came to CNBC when it merged with the Financial News Network, having joined FNN after a ten-year career as a stockbroker. After training at Merrill Lynch, he rose to the Vice President at both EF Hutton and Smith Barney. Focusing on small-to-medium corporations, Kernen managed corporate cash accounts and qualified retirement plans in addition to key employees' personal assets.

He is also co-author (with his teenage daughter, Blake) of the book "Your Teacher Said What?!! Defending Our Kids From the Liberal Assault on Capitalism" which published May 2011. An unapologetic cheerleader for the free enterprise system, he teaches Blake that it's not only the world's greatest engine for prosperity, but also essential for human freedom.

Kernen holds a Bachelor's degree in Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology and has a Master's Degree from MIT. During his graduate studies, he worked at the MIT Center for Cancer Research, one of the world's premier institutions.
