Black Snob Flees D.C. for Big Apple

D.C.’s loss is New York City’s gain. The Black Snob, a.k.a Danielle Belton, is moving to Manhattan to work as a writer and blogger on T.J. Holmes‘ new show on BET. The new program, Don’t Sleep, is a black, cultural-themed news show.

“For those of you playing at home, I worked on the pilot last winter and many, many moons ago used to pretend to stalk T.J. for poops n’ grins on the Internet,” Belton wrote on her blog. “Life is incredibly funny in how a guy I started writing about during this blog’s beginnings in 2008  is the same guy I wound up working for in my first scripted TV writing gig.”

The show premiers in October. Aside from script and blogger duties, Belton says we may find her as a panelist. But please, ignore those promos! “I’m already (silently) featured in the show’s promos, but I hate those promos because I’m wearing  the sweater of doom and I’m about 25 lbs heavier than I am now,” she writes.

Best wishes to Belton, and congratulations to her on her new gig!

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.
