A CNBC Original Steps Aside

ScottCohnScott Cohn, who was on of the original CNBC employees, is leaving full-time work with the business channel, and moving West where he will contribute to the network.

In a memo from CNBC president Mark Hoffman, as first reported by Talking Biz News, Cohn joined CNBC on March 20, 1989, a month before the network launched, as part of the original NY/NJ reporting team. In 1990, Cohn opened the Chicago Bureau, where he would stay for 9 years, before returning to headquarters.

He has covered most of the biggest business and general news stories of the past 25 years—from Enron and WorldCom to Hurricane Katrina and the Boston Marathon bombings. He has interviewed the famous and infamous, from Warren Buffett (his first live interview on CNBC in 1998) to Bernie Madoff. His documentaries have showcased the best of CNBC’s reporting.

In a couple of weeks, Scott will leave CNBC to make his journey West. In addition to some teaching and trying his hand at producing documentaries, he will become a special correspondent for CNBC, continuing to spearhead the annual Top States extravaganza.

Please join us in wishing Scott all the very best in his new adventure.

Pres. Obama Delivers Statement From White House Briefing Room

President Obama delivered a statement from the White House Briefing Room this afternoon on the economy and Washington gridlock. The cable and broadcast networks had live coverage of the press conference, which included questions from the press after the President delivered his remarks.

“Good Morning America” weekend news anchor Ron Claiborne anchored an ABC News special report, joined by Jonathan Karl. On NBC, David Gregory anchored with Chuck Todd at the White House. James Brown anchored on CBS with Bill Plante at the White House.

The cable news networks also took the President’s statement live: Jenna Lee anchored on Fox News with Wendell Goler at the White House, Krystal Ball anchored for MSNBC with Chris Jansing at the White House, and Anderson Cooper anchored for CNN with Wolf Blitzer in Jerusalem, Jake Tapper in Washington and Michelle Kosinski at the White House.

> First question goes to Roberta Rampton from Reuters, who asked about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

> Second question goes to Bill Plante from CBS News, who asked the President if he’s losing his international influence. In his response, Obama says that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been going on “even longer than you’ve been reporting.”

> Third question goes to Fox News’ Wendell Goler, who asks about the President’s executive orders.

> Fourth and last question goes to CNN’s Michelle Kosinski, who asks if a cease-fire in Gaza is realistic.

Warren Buffett Surprises Teen Cancer Patient Live on CNBC

Tre Grinner is 17 years old. When he grows up he wants to be an investment banker. Right now, he’s battling Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

Through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Grinner has been working as an intern at Goldman Sachs. CNBC caught on to Grinner’s story and brought him in for an interview Thursday. Then CNBC went one further and got Warren Buffett on the phone to give Tre some investment advice. Buffett then surprised the teenager with an invitation to the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting. “I’d like to meet you personally,” the oracle of Omaha said to the intern from New York. While he was at CNBC headquarters, Tre also spent a half hour talking stocks with Jim Cramer.

Bloomberg Names Leadership for Politics Vertical

BLOOMBERG-tv-LOGOBloomberg has announced two key appointments for its newly-created politics vertical: Tom Johnson has been named executive editor and Pat King has been appointed senior producer.

Johnson joins Bloomberg after 20 years at ABC News, where he was most recently senior broadcast producer of “World News with Diane Sawyer.” In a note to staff this morning, Bloomberg senior executive editor Josh Tyrangiel praised Johnson’s “spectacular mix of talent and temperament—his colleagues at ABC note that he’s usually the smartest guy in the room, and rarely feels the need to remind anyone of it.”

King comes to Bloomberg after nine years at “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” where he was most recently a segment producer. Tyrangiel — who noted “he’s not here to make the show funny” — called King “a passionate observer of national politics with a tremendous instinct for research.”

In addition to overseeing the politics vertical, Johnson and King will serve as executive producer and senior producer, respectively, for the daily politics show with Mark Halperin and John Heilemann slated to launch in October.

Tyrangiel’s full note, and the note from”World News” executive producer Michael Corn, after the jump.

Behind the TV Scenes: ‘Today’ EP Don Nash

Don Nash

This summer, we’re putting a spotlight on the industry’s top producers; getting the inside story about their shows, how they got to where they are, and advice they have for future TV journalists.

“Today” show executive producer Don Nash has been with NBC News for more than two decades, most of that time working at the signature morning show. Earlier this week we chatted with the NBC veteran

TVNewser: You’ve been with “Today” for 24 years. What’s kept you there, and how valuable a trait is loyalty to a specific network, in this day and age?

Nash: I never wanted to go anywhere else. I got out of college, I got a job as a page at NBC, and I never thought in a million years I’d ever work for a show as great as “Today.” I never thought in a billion years I’d ever be running the place. And I never had any desire to go anywhere else because I didn’t think it could get any better. It’s absolutely important to be loyal to whoever you work for, be it at a network or anywhere else. Loyalty is something I value in a big way; it’s something I value in the people who work for me, and it’s something I value in the people I work for.

TVNewser: Morning TV is a cutthroat industry. How do you balance the drive to be number one, managing talent egos, and producing a quality broadcast every day?
