CNN Shutting Down Martin’s ‘Funk’ in Final Days?

The TV world can be so cold. When you’re out, you’re out. And sometimes sooner than you might expect.

There are 17 days left on Roland Martin‘s CNN contract. But the powers that be appear to be shutting it down early. With his contract ending April 6, some producers have been informed not to book him, FishbowlDC has learned. We knew something was awry when we noticed Martin hadn’t tweeted his usual #bringthefunk alert on Twitter that he’d be appearing on Erin Burnette’s “Out Front,” which he hasn’t done in a month. On Wednesday he tweeted that he did Canadian TV. The Canadians can find time to bring Martin’s funk, but not CNN?

Let’s get this straight. That semi-usual appearance he had on Thursdays during Carol Costello‘s slot? Gone. It’s been three weeks since he appeared on her program and months since he appeared on “The Situation Room.” He was also non-existent during CNN Inauguration coverage in January. A final appearance on his close friend, Soledad O’Brien‘s program, which ends next week? That appears to be a dead end proposition, too.

Martin’s fierce Twittering following is not pleased. “I’m certainly going to miss you on CNN,” wrote Pasadena, Calif. resident Carolee Reed. “I cant believe that the two people who always kept it real are leaving.” (Person number two being O’Brien, she explains.) Ebony Shamberger, a UNC J-School student, was dumfounded. “Leaving CNN on April 6 — what?” she wrote in response to Reed.

Martin isn’t the only one being given the shaft. Read more

CNN’s Costello to Atlanta

Having just revamped their mornings with Soledad O’Brien and “Starting Point”, CNN is now adding Washington-based Carol Costello to their morning lineup, FishbowlDC has learned. Costello will move from DC to Atlanta to begin anchoring CNN Newsroom from 9-11am.

Kyra Phillips will move to 11am, followed by Suzanne Malveaux from noon to 2pm. The changes are taking place as Randi Kaye, who was filling in temporarily on CNN Newsroom, becomes the permanent anchor for CNN Weekend mornings.  Kaye will also do investigative reporting for AC 360 weeknights.

Anderson Cooper to Spice Up Tuesday’s Debate

CNN anchor and daytime’s new heartthrob Anderson Cooper will moderate the Tuesday, Oct. 18 debate presented by CNN and the Western Republican Leadership Conference.

The debate, which will air live from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. (ET), will broadcast from The Venetian Resort in Vegas. Voters from the 16 states and territories that make up the Western region of the U.S. will be in audience to pose questions directly to the candidates. Let’s hope Newt Gingrich doesn’t give them the Chris Wallace treatment.

Eight presidential contenders will participate in the debate: Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, businessman Herman Cain, former House Speaker Gingrich, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum.

CNN’s live and on-location coverage surrounding the debate will begin with CNN Newsroom on Saturday, Oct. 15 and continue through American Morning on Wednesday, Oct. 19. Programming from Sin City along with Cooper will include Wolf Blitzer, Erin Burnett, John King, T.J. Holmes, and Carol Costello. CNN political contributors and analysts also on hand will include Gloria Borger, Ron Brownstein, Alex Castellanos, Ari Fleischer, David Gergen and Mary Matalin. CNN en Español’s Washington anchor Juan Carlos López will host live analysis on that network before the debate starting at 7:45 p.m. (ET). At 8 p.m., CNN en Español will take the debate live with simultaneous interpretation followed by more analysis with CNN en Español’s team of political contributors. The debate will also be carried live on CNN International.

Separated at Birth: CNN’s Carol Costello and…

Today’s twins have driven a D.C. media type away from CNN this morning. “I have to change the channel.” he wrote into FishbowlDC. “Ahhhhhhh!”

The pairing is CNN contributor to “American Morning” Carol Costello and Aerosmith’s lead singer Steven Tyler.

Morning Reading List, 04.14.08

Good morning Washington.

Quickly navigate Morning Reading List:

REVOLVING DOOR | NEWSPAPERS | TV | ONLINE MEDIA | MAGAZINES | RADIO | JOBS

  • You think Anderson Cooper is the next anchor of the CBS Evening News, but one reader writes in, “Dude, you know who’s perfect to take Katie’s chair? GWEN IFILL. She should be on your poll list. She has print cred, already anchors an evening news program much of the time as Lehrer’s substitute, and has the all the gravitas it took to moderate the VP debate in 2004.”

  • Today’s “Angry Journalist” rant of the day: “I’m angry because this business can break your heart in all sorts of ways”

  • This week’s mediabistro.com classes include Interviewing Techniques, Travel Writing Boot Camp and Humor Writing.

    REVOLVING DOOR

  • Top of post

    NEWSPAPERS

  • Business Week reports, “This could go down as the year the newspaper broke—the year that the melting icebergs finally fragmented; the year that the old ways were definitively unmasked as unsustainable amid steepening revenue declines and a steady procession of buyouts and layoffs. The story is substantially different for Pearson’s London-based Financial Times. Like other major British upmarket newspapers, it winced its way through staggering losses earlier this decade, losing $60 million-plus in 2003 and more than $17 million in 2004. Unlike others, it has staged a remarkable turnaround.”

  • Portfolio’s Kevin Maney writes, “I just want to point out that from my particular point of view, the Pulitzers seem completely disconnected from what works with readers in journalism. I was at USA Today for 22 years. We didn’t ‘chase’ Pulitzers, but we certainly desired them. The paper nominated my columns a few times. It nominated exceptional pieces by very talented colleagues many, many times. The journalism establishment judging the prizes never gave USA Today the nod to win.”

  • Pew Weekly News Interest Index shows, “With the presidential campaign in something of a lull, public interest in campaign news has declined. Last week, 33% of the public paid very close attention to campaign news, down from 44% in mid-February. Public interest in the campaign, which had consistently surpassed attentiveness to previous presidential contests, is now comparable to the level measured in April 2004″

  • Reuters reports, “Shareholders should withhold their votes for three nominees to the New York Times Co board, a key shareholder services group said on Thursday. Shareholders should vote withheld for current board members David Liddle, Ellen Marram and Thomas Middelhoff, RiskMetrics’s Institutional Shareholder Services unit said in a report released on Thursday and written on April 9.”

    TV

  • A NBC release announced, “According to Nielsen Media Research data, ‘Meet the Press with Tim Russert” was the most-watched Sunday morning public affairs program, winning the week ending Sunday, April 6, 2008 in all categories. On Sunday, the Russert-moderated program was No. 1, averaging 3.478 million total viewers”

  • An ABC release announced, “According to Nielsen Media Research for Sunday, April 6, 2008, ABC News’ ‘This Week with George Stephanopoulos’ outperformed CBS’ ‘Face the Nation’ among Total Viewers. This is the 18th time this season and sixth consecutive week ‘This Week’ beat ‘Face’ in Total Viewers”

  • A reader asks, “RE: Radio-TV dinner. ‘CNN personalities Gloria Borger, Ed Henry, Dana Bash, Jessica Yellin and Carol Costello are expected to attend.’ When did reporters become ‘personalities’?”

  • And another curious reader asks, “How in the hell are all these people going to Wednesday’s dinner on the same night as the Dem Pa. debate?”

  • A C-SPAN release announced, “C-SPAN … will bring the voters and issues of Pennsylvania to its national audience the week of April 15-22. Among the highlights featured in the week-long election special will be LIVE programming from eight Pennsylvania cities, interviews with voters and elected officials, and one-on-one discussions with students at eight area colleges. C-SPAN’s signature morning program, Washington Journal, will be LIVE from Pennsylvania each morning at 8:30 am ET. Washington Journal will originate from C-SPAN’s Campaign 2008 Bus, which will be traveling the state meeting voters and exploring local opinions on national issues”

  • UPI reports, “The Los Angeles Press Club said it plans to honor U.S. broadcast journalist Bob Woodruff with its Daniel Pearl Award.”

  • Multichannel News reports, “CNN will engage a multiplatform effort to cover Pope Benedict’s first official papal visit to the United States next week, officials said Thursday. Online as well as on CNN/U.S., CNN International, CNN en Español, CNN Radio and Headline News, CNN will report on the pope’s address to the United Nations, his meeting with President George W. Bush, his visit to Ground Zero in New York and other events.”

    ONLINE MEDIA

  • ValleyWag reports, “Is the Drudge Report shrinking? One blog thinks so, and cites Alexa data — by far the most inaccurate of the website-measurement sites — to prove it. Is Drudge shrinking? No, but it also isn’t growing as fast as some other sites, including the 3-year old Huffington Post.”

  • Club for Growth is starting a new blog, called VP Watch, “dedicated solely to all the speculation, rumors, gossip, research, etc. about potential vice-presidential picks.”

  • Beet.TV reports, “Charlie Rose, the thinking person’s late night talk show host, has undertaken an ambitious plan to edit 4000 hours of archives into short Web videos under four minutes. A library of some 800 clips will be available when the portal/syndication platform launches this summer.”

  • WineTasteTV.com is up and running, headed by Roger Marmet, the former head of Discovery’s TLC.

  • Crains New York reports, “MSNBC.com has career goals. The news Web site announced on Thursday an agreement with Monster Worldwide Inc. that makes the online job site the exclusive career services provider for MSNBC.com”

  • WebProNews reports, “AOL has launched the AOL Technology Network, which includes the blogs Engadget, Switched, TUAW (The Unofficial Apple Weblog), and the DownloadSquad. AOL says its Technology Network will give users a resource to compile information about technology news and products. For advertisers it will allow them to integrate ad campaigns across the network of sites.”

    MAGAZINES

The unit of News Corp. also introduced the title’s editor, Tina Gaudoin, who last fall launched the Times of London’s luxury magazine, Luxx.”

    RADIO

  • The PEJ Talk Show Index for March 31-April 6 shows, “Two liberal radio hosts, Randi Rhodes and Ed Schultz, generated headlines and a backlash last week for their rhetoric in attacking Hillary Clinton and John McCain. And some conservative talkers see pro-Barack Obama media bias behind the calls on Clinton to withdraw”
