How Much Would You Pay To Have Lunch With Chris Matthews? Or Tour This Week Set With George?

How much would you pay to have lunch or dinner with Chris Matthews at the Willard? $1,550?

How about to tour the set of This Week with George Stephanopoulos? $900?

To tour Meet the Press set with David Gregory and the opportunity to turn the questions on him? $1,000?

Luckily for Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights there are plenty of people out there who would pay those current bids for charity.

Other journos up for bidding: Anderson Cooper (a taping of 360 going for $2,000), Bill O’Reilly (a taping of The Factor going for $1,850) and Helen Thomas (a dinner with 5 going for $550). Oprah‘s killing it- bid’s at $27,500 to meet her backstage- while poor Tom Friedman‘s only going for $450 for lunch at the Bombay Club right now.

NEWSPAPERS | TV | RADIO | MAGAZINES | NEWS NOTES | JOBS | FBDC’S PICK

NEWPAPERS

A philantropist, Eli Broad, is interested in buying the LATimes and later combining it with WaPo.

The NYT is offering to “retrain” its reporters to produce for the web, but few are interested.

The Observer reports Robert Murdoch‘s News Corporation has purchased The Brooklyn Newspaper.

We somehow missed this last week- NYT’s Tom Friedman wrote a column endorsing The Onion? You have to see it to believe it here.

TV

Will liberal talk radio host Ed Schultz get his own shot at MSNBC? The Observer looks into that here. Schultz has filled in for David Shuster on 1600 Pennsylvania Ave this week; Shuster has filled in for Keith Olbermann on Countdown.

RADIO

More Howard Kurtz on Rush Limbaugh in yesterday’s Media Backtalk, WaPo’s online chat. “It is difficult to measure Rush’s audience across 600 stations- but I don’t believe he is wrong that Limbaugh enjoyed a huge spike in listeners during a week when the Rush vs. White House story line all but dominated the news,” Kurtz said.

DCRTV reports WAMU has signed Diane Rehm to a new five-year deal. The late-morning show, which is syndicated on more than 135 stations, will celebrate its 30th anniversary this fall. “I’m delighted to be with WAMU and NPR for five more years,” said Rehm. “These are historic and monumental times. I’m proud that our program will continue to give voice to the leaders moving our country forward and to our listeners, who have made- and continue to make- this program so successful.”

MAGAZINES

FBDC has learned Larry Van Dyne was among those cut at Washingtonian magazine. He was a writer/editor at the mag for 30 years. DCRTV reports of the 11 editorial people let go, seven were editorial and four were contract writers.

NEWS NOTES

Several news organizations, including NPR, ABC and the BBC are urging Iranian officials to release detained journalist Roxana Saberi, who has been detained in the country since late January.

NPR asks “Where Were The Media as Wall Street Imploded?”

Submissions are being accepted for the 2009 Knight International Journalism Awards. Deadline is April 13th. Nominations can be made here.
