Koch, Arena Leave CNN

FishbowlDC has obtained an internal memo from CNN reporter Kathleen Koch:

    2009 will be a year of change for the nation. And it will be a year of change for me. After 18 years with CNN, I am moving on. I am so grateful for the amazing opportunity I’ve had to cover so many disparate and challenging beats, from aviation, to hurricanes, the Pentagon, Capitol Hill. And while I’ve helped out on the White House beat since 1996, I’ve particularly enjoyed being there full-time for the past year. It takes a special breed not only to cover that beat, but to do the people’s work within those gray sandstone walls. I have made friends there in the media and on the staff that I hope will last a lifetime. I am also grateful to CNN for its flexibility during the years when I worked part-time. The opportunity to put my family first while my daughters were young was worth its weight in gold. I have always said the best thing about CNN is the people you work with. And that is what I will miss most. After 18 years, you are my family. I will not begin to try to say thank you. The list would be endless. Just know that it has been an honor and a pleasure to work with you through blizzards, hurricanes, droughts, floods, plane crashes, hearings, press conferences, endless stakeouts… We pulled together and put on stories that illuminated, educated, entertained and sometimes, when we did our job particularly well, changed people lives. You have all enriched my life, and for that I count myself a fortunate woman. As my friends on the Mississippi Gulf Coast always say, I am blessed. Kathleen

We’ve also learned that CNN’s Justice Department/Supreme Court correspondent Kelli Arena is leaving the network.

DC’s “Funniest” “Celebrity”: Kotecki Wuz Robbed!

Last night was the 15th annual “D.C.’s Funniest Celebrity” competition and, after bombing for two years in a year, I decided to simply become a judge instead. (See my write up on last night’s event for the Washington Examiner here, including video and photos).

Suffice to say: Politico’s James Kotecki was the funniest, but some judges — *cough*Clements*cough*Jenkins*cough*Tumulty*cough*Carlson*cough* — were smitten by the star power of Mike Huckabee so the governor ended up winning (either that or someone did a really bad job tallying up the votes).

Some other funny media notes:

  • Want to know why David Shuster couldn’t perform and Chuck Todd couldn’t judge? Ask the bigwigs at NBC who forbade them from doing so at the last minute. (This Lame-O Factor could also explain why Shuster was recently told to can his regular light-hearted news segment).

  • What did Kotecki call Shuster during his routine? A dick? Tsk tsk…

  • Emcee Clarence Page paid tribute to two former Funniest Celebrity contestants — Tony Snow and Tim Russert — who passed away in the past year. “Despite the fact that they were journalists, they were good people.”

  • CNN’s Jamie McIntyre: “I have very low expectations for tonight. I just want to get through it and still have my job tomorrow.”

  • Bob Barr: “I like MSNBC. It’s like Fox, but without the ratings.”

    Check out Kotecki’s performance here.
