David H. Faber (born March 10, 1964) is a financial journalist and market news analyst for the television cable network CNBC. He is currently one of the co-hosts of CNBC's morning show Squawk on the Street.
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).
His mother (Belle B. Faber) is a businesswoman and an associate director of the American Jewish Congress. His father (Norman L. Faber) is a lawyer. In 2000, Faber married Jenny Harris, who is a business journalist / television producer, daughter of lawyer Jay Harris (Hall Dickler Kent Goldstein & Wood) and As the World Turns actress Marie Masters, and fraternal twin sister of musician Jesse Harris. Faber is a 1985 cum laude graduate of Tufts University, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English.
