Faber joined CNBC in 1993 after seven years at Institutional Investor. He has been dubbed "The Brain" by CNBC co-workers, and has hosted several documentaries on corporations, such as Wal-Mart and eBay. The Age of Walmart earned Faber a 2005 Peabody Award and an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award for Broadcast Journalism.

In 2001, Faber was considered to be a strong contender for the co-anchor chair of CNN's then-popular Moneyline.

In addition to Squawk on the Street, Faber hosts the network's monthly program, Business Nation, which debuted on January 24, 2007.

Faber is the author of three books; The Faber Report (2002), And Then the Roof Caved In (2009), and House of Cards: The Origins of the Collapse (2010).
