Bill O’Reilly Interview Part of ‘Journalistic History,’ Says Bill O’Reilly

Bill O’Reilly thinks Bill O’Reilly is pretty great. Speaking with another certainly iconic — though unfortunately at times half-naked — journalist, Geraldo Rivera, O’Reilly said that his pre-Super Bowl interview with President Obama was quite amazing.

“I’m going to predict that that interview that I did is going to go down in journalistic history as what should be done,” O’Reilly told Rivera. “It takes a certain skill to pose questions in a factual way and be persistent without being disrespectful.”

We’d write more about O’Reilly’s claim, but we simply must give the man a standing ovation.

Where’s the Mick Jagger Selfie?

In the wake of Geraldo famously Tweeting proof that “70 is the new 50,” FishbowlNY is secretly hoping today’s 7-0 birthday boy Mick Jagger will cheekily at some point pick up on that semi-naked trail.

Jagger has always had a wicked sense of humor. So while we appreciate TIME‘s “10 Great Performances” gallery, applaud Marie Claire UK’s fashion-plate spread and the rest, we can’t get no media satisfaction until Mick reminds with a camera wink-wink just how in-fabulous physical shape he still is.

At press time, there is nothing Geraldo-July-4ish to be found on Mick’s Twitter feed. In fact, if the timeline is any indication, the 70th celebrations started well early into the week and are still going on.

Nice Try | Poor Pie | Tech Addition

TVNewser: Geraldo Rivera is “seriously considering” running for U.S. Senate seat. Meanwhile voters are “seriously considering” his sanity.

2012: The FishbowlNY Year in Review

It was a year that featured the FM band being rediscovered like the progressive music era of the late 1960s.

ESPN took the lead in April by moving (after simulcasting) WEPN/1050 to 98.7. The 1050 position has since become New York’s only 24-hour Spanish sports talk outlet.

It was a surprise to no one, that CBS Radio expedited its quest for an FM station, when Merlin’s ill-fated news operation, turned Alternative Rocker, became available in October. WFAN is now simulcast on 660 and 101.9.

As for Merlin, it yanked the 24-hour FM news attempt (WEMP) in July–less than a year after it started. Merlin returned to its previous format held by Emmis, and continuing the “Bobby Ewing shower scene” theme, management even resurrected the WRXP call letters.

Other radio doings during 2012, include Geraldo Rivera turning to the medium early in 2012 at WABC. By summertime, the veteran TV host was syndicated to Cumulus stations nationwide.

In August, Clear Channel acquired WOR. As the FCC signed off on the deal, two shows were canceled last week, Dr Joy Browne and Governor David Paterson. This remains a fluid story heading into 2013.

TV also had its share of shakeups. In certain instances you could say this was management’s version of “Out with old and in the new.”

Cumulus Taking Geraldo’s Radio Show National

Geraldo Rivera is experiencing a rebirth on radio. The WABC midday host will expand to a national audience later this summer. Rivera’s show will be offered to Cumulus Radio Network affiliates, totaling more than 4,000 stations.

The show, which launched on WABC in January, and subsequently added KABC in Los Angeles.

Following the success of those shows, Geraldo will become a single live national show launching in advance of this summer’s political conventions. The show’s tagline is, “Not Red. Not Blue. But Red, White & Blue.”

“When Geraldo agreed to host shows for Cumulus stations in New York and L.A. we had a hunch there’d be national substantial listener interest in his incisive and insightful style,” John Dickey, co-chief operating officer of Cumulus, says. ”Now we’re thrilled that with Geraldo such a success in those two markets the show will now be available across the country.”

In just a few months on the air, Rivera spearheaded coverage during the early stages of the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman murder case. And his comments about the role apparently played by the young victim’s clothing, his ‘hoodie’, became the basis for an international debate.

Rivera will continue to host his Sunday night show on Fox News Channel, where he’s a frequent contributor weekdays.

The Geraldo radio begins its national run August 13, from 9 a.m. to noon. eastern time.
