Buffett and Munger to sit for extended TV interview

June 22, 2021 GMT

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Investors will have another chance to hear from Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger when the two top Berkshire Hathaway executives sit down together for an interview next week.

Before the coronavirus pandemic, tens of thousands of people would pack an Omaha arena each spring to listen to Buffett and Munger spend hours answering questions at Berkshire’s annual meeting. This year, the two men offered their wit and wisdom at an online version of the company’s shareholder meeting.

An hourlong interview with Buffett and Munger will air next Tuesday on CNBC at 7 p.m. Central where they will discuss current business events, their lifelong friendship and lessons they have learned from the pandemic.

This will be the first time Buffett and Munger take questions since Berkshire announced that Vice Chairman Greg Abel will one day succeed Buffett as Berkshire Hathaway CEO after the 90-year-old Buffett is gone.

The Omaha, Nebraska-based conglomerate that Buffett and Munger lead owns more than 90 companies, including BNSF railroad, Geico insurance and several major utilities. Berkshire also owns manufacturing, furniture, shoe, jewelry, chocolate, underwear and brick companies, and it holds major investments in Apple, Bank of America, Coca-Cola and other companies.
