D.C. Journo on New ABC Reality Show

Sasha Horne, a 28-year-old Washington, D.C.-based journalist who most recently covered technology and trends for the RIA Novosti news agency, will appear on ABC’s murder mystery summer series “Whodunnit?”

According to a release,”Whodunnit?” is a series that puts 13 amateur sleuths’ skills to the test in a mystery reality competition. Players will use crime scene techniques to uncover evidence in a series of puzzling murders and ultimately reveal who among them is the killer. Players will form alliances, while others will choose to go it alone to win the grand prize. Each week players must solve a new crime to advance in the game. Failure to solve the crime will lead to a player’s demise, until only three are left. In the final episode, one player will unmask the killer and take home the $250,000 prize.

Sasha got her start in news with the help of NBC4 Anchor Angie Goff. “Sasha Horne was my first intern and she left some HUGE shoes to fill,” Angie wrote in a blog post. “I was so proud of her.”

Sasha says the internship wasn’t easy, including working abominable hours of 4 a.m. to 8 a.m. Monday through Friday. “Keep in mind at that time I was still working full time from 9-5 and I had grad school three evenings a week,” she wrote in a post. “The deadlines were real. As an intern I helped research and produce Angie’s daily morning segment as well as helping to respond to the SLEW of RSVP’s she’d receive for various community events. Anyone who knows Angie knows how much giving back is important to her, so managing her calendar was quite the task! Did I make mistakes, yes. Was it hard? You bet! But that’s all a part of learning and growing.”

After the internship, Sasha moved on to help produce at CNN and had an on-air gig in North Carolina. She also made appearances on TV and radio and covered politics in Atlanta.

The series premiers on June 22 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.

NBC’s Goff Announces Pregnancy

Privacy. Who needs it?

NBC Washington reporter Angie Goff had an interesting way of telling her fans, friends and colleagues that she’s expecting another child. She posted her ultrasound on Facebook and linked to the news on Twitter.

But what is the gender of the baby? Now that’s still a mystery. On her blog, she reveals what everyone’s best guess is. For example, the ladies at her nail salon all say it’s going to be a boy. She also thinks it’s going to be a boy. But her father? He says it’s a girl. And her husband? He has no idea.

“My little nugget gained 1.5 lbs in two weeks.” — Tim Wong, WaPo designer.

After last week’s televised tenseness in which MSNBC “Morning Joe” Co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinksi butted heads on chauvinist matters and he snapped his fingers in her face to move on, Scarborough made three New Year’s resolutions directed to Brzezinksi morning on “Morning Joe.” Well, at least two were directed her way: 1) “I’m not going to do that ever again.” 2) “I’m going to try to not interrupt you less in the new year.” 3) “The next time we go to the White House, I’m going to try very hard to not poop my pants.”

TV News Personalities: Prepare to be Pinked

Female TV news personalities in Washington aren’t as vindictive and cutting as other cities. Sure, they’re fiercely competitive when it comes to breaking stories. But each year they come together to socialize and raise money for a worthy cause and, in the process, submit themselves to being called “newsbabes.” This year’s cause: breast cancer.

The women first powwowed at the suggestion of then-ABC7 anchor Kathleen Matthews who got FOX’s Laura Evans and WUSA’s Andrea Roane to walk the catwalk for the American Heart Association. When they began four years ago, Evans wasn’t thrilled with the name “newsbabes” Newsbabes? Who wants to be called that? The originals were Evans, NBC Washington’s Angie Goff (who has valiantly shopped for bras on air), Roane, FOX’s Sue Palka, and WUSA’s Anita Brikman. As the years wore on, Evans gave in and now shrugs it off. “I wasn’t a huge fan of the name newsbabes,” she says, “but I’ve gotten over it. It’s tongue-in-cheek and I need to loosen up a little.”

Evans says it’s all about giving back. “It doesn’t discriminate,” she said of breast cancer, noting a close friend who was diagnosed with it last year. “So we all need to help each other out.”

The bash is tonight from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Howard Theatre where NBC Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Andrea Mitchell, who announced her breast cancer diagnosis earlier this year, will be the guest of honor and will share her own experience. This year’s event raises funds for George Washington University’s Mammovan, which brings services to women can’t otherwise afford them.

This year they’re breaking tradition and letting men in. They’re calling them “Newsmen in Pink.” A sampling: NBC’s Luke Russert (we heard he looks pretty snazzy in pink), CNN’s Peter Hamby and NBCs Peter Alexander. FNC is pulling out all the stops with Bret Baier, Ed Henry, Peter Doocy and Juan Williams.

The newsbabes who will be attending: Brikman, Pamela Brown, Rebecca Cooper, Evans, Doreen Gentzler, Jennifer Griffin, Lesli Foster, Goff, Hillary Holward, Megan Hughes, Brianna Keilar, Britt McHenry, Palka, Roane, Cynné Simpson, Alison Starling, Shawn Yancy and Eun Yang.

Purchasing tickets: Tickets will be available at the door tonight for $75 at The Howard Theatre, 620 T Street NW. The fare will naturally include a pink dessert bar put together by Georgetown Cupcake, Dolci Gelati and Sweet Signatures.
