Insana Returns To CNBC After Hedge Fund Stint

Mar 3 2009 | 2:55am ET

Ron Insana has rejoined CNBC, just days after abandoning his effort to become a hedge fund mogul.

Insana was a primary anchor on the business cable channel until 2006, when he quit to set up his own fund of hedge funds. He shuttered Insana Capital Partners in August, and then joined hedge fund giant SAC Capital Management as a managing partner.

Now, he’s back on television as a senior analyst for CNBC. The newsman-cum-hedgie-cum-newsman returned to the small screen today, on the Power Lunch program.
