Erin Burnett paid a tearful farewell to her CNBC career on Friday. Burnett is set to move to CNN after over five years at the financial news network.

Burnett first gave a series of trinkets to her co-host Mark Haines, who was just as cut up about her leaving as she was.

"Give me your hand," he said, and she obliged. "Coming to work for the last five-and-a-half years has been an absolute joy. You are the best. The absolute best. We wish you the best of luck. We're going to miss you a lot."

Burnett, struggling to speak through tears, said, "I feel the same way." She couldn't say anything else except, "goodbye."

"I'm going to go home and cry," Haines said.
