In January of 2003, Faber hosted and co-produced CNBC's acclaimed first original documentary entitled, "The Big Heist, How AOL Took Time Warner."
Faber regularly breaks big business stories. His bigger scoops include the massive fraud at WorldCom, the bail out of the hedge fund Long Term Capital Management and United Technologies and GE’s planned purchase of Honeywell.
In 2003, Faber won the Maxwell Award for best story on the cable industry for his work on "The Big Heist: How AOL Took Time Warner." Faber won the Deadline Club of New York’s 1997 Award for “Best Broadcast Business Story” for his breaking report of the now historic buyout of MCI Communications in November 1996. In 2003, he was nominated for a Gerald Loeb Award for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism for breaking the news of massive fraud at WorldCom.
Faber joined CNBC in 1993 after seven years at “Institutional Investor,” where he covered corporate finance and global equity markets, and launched “Emerging Markets Week”-a publication focusing on the world’s developing capital markets.
Faber’s first book, “The Faber Report” was published by Little, Brown in Spring 2002.
