NEWSPAPERS

WaPo sports reporter Tony Kornheiser is leaving the paper next month. He took a buyout last year but accepted a one-year contract, doing mostly online content with Mike Wilbon.

Reuters’ Tom Glocer (via NY Observer): “Why does The New York Times need to have 600-700 journalists? Why not 30 journalists with 30 apprentices? Does The New York Times do a good job covering sports? So-so. Do they do a good job covering business? No. How about The New York Times on Israel, FT on Germany and France, which is really good, ESPN on sports and other smaller things coming together on a style sheet every morning?”

In a speech, Google’s Eric Schmidt insisted Google is a friend to newspapers and encouraged newspaper publishers to create more personalized news products that could be delivered effectively on the Web, cellphones, and other devices.

Boston Globe publisher Steve Ainsley addressed the paper’s dire financial situation for the first time to the staff Monday evening. Politico has that memo.

FishbowlNY: In January, the Minneapolis Star Tribune filed for bankruptcy, putting its future in jeopardy. Employees of the paper are fighting back, launching a Web site asking readers to help save the paper.

TV

Could it be that, when it comes to political talk shows, the new slogan will be, “If it’s Sunday, it’s Univision“? In the eyes of the Spanish-language network, it’s a sure thing. “I have no doubt that eventually we will be beating” all other Sunday talk shows, Univision’s Jorge Ramos tells Politico. “It’s just a matter of time.” Look out David Gregory.

BBC America has axed its three-hour morning international news block due to low ratings. The changes to the schedule kicked in Monday without prior announcement from the BBC. The twice nightly BBC World News America, presented by Matt Frei and anchored from DC is popular with audience and will continue to air at 7 and 10pm.

MSNBC’s The Ed Show- TVNewser has the reviews.

RADIO

“The Joe Scarborough Show” debuts this week on 630 WMAL in D.C. The radio show, hosted by Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski from 10-11:45amET, is up 89% from January to February ’09 in NY in the A25-54 demo, topping WOR at 10amET and lead-in “Imus in the Morning” for the month. Though, Glenn Beck‘s WOR hour from 10-11amET beat Scarborough in the demo.
