For once, an NBC News hire is not going to Brian Williams’ primetime hour: CNBC has tapped New York Times columnist and “Too Big to Fail” author Andrew Ross Sorkin to replace Carl Quintanilla as co-anchor on the net’s morning show, “Squawk Box.”

“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 network senior veep Nik Deogun in an email to staffers on Friday morning. Quintanilla is moving to anchor 9 a.m. show “Squawk on the Street.”Sorkin will join Becky Quick and Joe Kernen on the program today; he will continue to write for the Times, which has an online partnership with CNBC, and oversee biz news website Dealbook.
