CNBC Gets Dean of All Guest Hosts


CNBC got a real screamer to fill in as guest host of its Topic A with Tina Brown Sunday.

Former Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont Gov. Howard Dean will sub for Brown, AP reported.

He will talk about the upcoming election and electronic voting systems with author and activist Bev Harris and California Secretary of State Kevin Shelley, and Jon Stewart, host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, will also appear, along with National Public Radio host Tavis Smiley and syndicated radio host Tom Leykis, according to AP.

“I am delighted to be stepping in for Tina this week,” Dean said in a prepared statement. “This is an opportunity to speak about issues that can change this country.”
