Howard Kurtz’s Fox News Show Media Buzz to Challenge CNN Head-On (The Washington Post / Erik Wemple)
For those who formerly tuned in on Sunday mornings at 11 a.m. to watch Howard Kurtz discuss the media on CNN, there’s good news: He’ll be doing essentially the same thing at the same hour in his new post at Fox News. The head-to-head scheduling is a tough break for those 17 Americans who have an appetite for two hours of media-crit-related cable talk-show fare. TVNewser Fox News says it is scheduling the show in that timeslot for logistical purposes, rather than for competitive ones. Kurtz wants to do the show live and from Washington, D.C. The show it’s replacing, Fox News Watch, tapes on Friday and airs on Saturday. The one-hour show will also feature Lauren Ashburn — a regular on Kurtz’s Reliable Sources.

Variety Since Kurtz’s departure, CNN has used a series of fill-in hosts on Reliable Sources, including New York Times reporter Brian Stelter, former Portfolio editor Joanne Lipman and Tampa Bay Times media critic Eric Deggans.
