Wald departs, others boycott

The head of CNBC is leaving the business channel:


The senior news executive at CNBC said Tuesday that he would leave the job next month, in the midst of what is arguably the biggest story in the business channel's history.


Jonathan Wald, the senior vice president for business news, said he could not reach agreement on a new contract and would leave at the end of March.


Incidentally, I see via the FT that today is the Boycott CNBC Day. I'm not sure if that means Wald has really good or bad timing.
