TV Week’s News Pro magazine is out with its forward-looking “12 to Watch in TV News” list. Unsurprisingly, HLN president Albie Hecht is on the list, as he’s expected to make major changes to the network early on in the new year.
Other network executives featured are NBC News President Deborah Turness—who is rumored to be eyeing major shakeups, including cutting on-air talent and possibly even making changes to “Meet the Press”—and Al Jazeera America President Kate O’Brian, who told TVNewser AJAM aims to become the top news division in America. Whether she can lift the new network from its ratings woes in an interesting storyline to watch in 2014.
Other names to watch include Sam Champion‘s “GMA” successor Ginger Zee, soon-to-be CNN host Bill Weir, CBS News’ Clarissa Ward, CNBC Anchor Kelly Evans, PBS “Newshour’s” Hari Sreenivasan, and TV One’s Roland Martin.
