Faber attended Tufts University and graduated in 1985 as a cum laude, with a bachelor’s degree majoring in English.

David started his career as part of the “Institutional Investor” magazine, which is a monthly periodical published by Euromoney Institutional Investor. He worked there for seven years before joining CNBC in 1993. Since joining CNBC, he’s worked on numerous documentaries including covering large corporations. Some of his well-known documentaries include articles on eBay and Wal-Mart; for his documentary entitled “The Age of Walmart”, he earned a 2005 Peabody Award and an Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia University Award for Broadcast Journalism. He’s been called by CNBC co-workers as “The Brain”, thanks to his numerous ideas. He was considered for a co-anchor job at the popular CNN show “Moneyline” but only remained as a contender. Regardless, his net worth was growing steadily.

Currently, David works as part of “Squawk on the Street”. The show made its debut in 2005 as a one hour program, which was extended to two hours after two years and would then expand to three hours in 2011. It reverted to two hours in 2014 to make way for a spin-off show entitled “Squawk Alley”. The show is broadcast live at the New York Stock Exchange, and so follows the trading on Wall Street. David also has a monthly news program called “Business Nation”, which started in 2007, an hour long newsmagazine-style show that focuses on headlines in the business industry. It also touches stories in finance and economy that will affect the lives of Americans. The show’s format mainly shows three stories a month including investigative pieces, features, interviews, and profiles. It is the first newsmagazine show to focus on business and the success of the show has won it an Emmy Award for Outstanding Investigative Reporting in 2007.

Aside from his broadcast journalism career, David has authored three books. In 2002 “The Faber Report” was published, and seven years later he released “And Then the Roof Caved In”. His most recent book was released in 2010, and is entitled “Origins of the Collapse”, all adding somewhat to his net worth.

For his personal life, it is known that David married business journalist Jenny Harris in 2000, who is the daughter of lawyer Jay Harris. She is the fraternal twin sister of the musician Jesse Harris. Faber’s mother is Belle B. Faber who is the associate director of the American Jewish Congress.
