He will host alongside Becky Quick and Joe Kernen on the 6 a.m. show and continue to write his column for the Times and oversee his online news site, DealBook.
"As a CNBC contributor, Andrew has long been an extended member of both the CNBC and Squawk families, and we're pleased he will now be a part of our morning team," said Nik Deogun, SVP and editor in chief, business news at CNBC, in an internal memo obtained by B&C. "Through his articles and columns, his book Too Big to Fail, and his appearances on CNBC and elsewhere, he has proven to be one of the premier financial journalists in the country."
Sorkin replaces Carl Quintanilla on the program, who on Monday moved over to co-anchor morning show Squawk on the Street with Melissa Lee.
Quintanilla and Lee replaced former Squawk on the Street host Erin Burnett, who jumped to CNN, and the late Mark Haines, who passed away in May.
