In Profile: Stacey Dash, Alicia Menendez

DashStaceyNew Fox News contributor Stacey Dash talks with the New York Post about her dating life:

For now, Dash says she’s just trying to get a hold of the whole “dating thing.” “It’s liberating, but it’s mind-boggling,” says thrice-divorced Dash. While she claims not to “judge anyone by their political standings,” Dash admits a recent date ran afoul for just that reason. “He was very, very liberal and kind of hippie-ish and, you know, that didn’t quite work out well,” says Dash, who’s also working on a memoir, “Not Black Enough.” The LA-based actress says that while she’s in town for Fox, she’ll test the NYC dating scene. “You know, New York men, they have a little bit more swagger, which I like.”

aliciamenendezFusion anchor Alicia Menedez talks with Cosmo about what led her to the ABC/Univision net:

“I really wanted to prove that I could do more than politics, so I also looked for opportunities that focused on pop culture. Even in my writing, I tried to make a pivot to more socio-cultural issues. When I was booked on political topics, I would try to find a cultural entry point that I could speak to instead of remaining only in the politics box. In my real life I am interested in politics, yes, but I’m also interested in pop culture, I’m interested in all those conversations we have with our friends about sex, about money, about relationships. I needed to reintroduce myself to people in that way.”

With CNN’s Atlanta Studio Turning Over to HLN, What Happens to CNN Center Tours?

Jeff Zucker Named New Chief Executive At CNNAs what’s left of CNN’s weekday programming moves from Atlanta to New York City next month, some TVNewser readers are wondering what that means for the CNN Center tours that have been offered for decades.

A CNN spokesperson tells TVNewser the tours will continue, with people still having the chance to peak in on in-progress shows. As CNN vacates Studio 7 in Atlanta the studio will soon be used for HLN programs. CNN will continue to use the Atlanta studio for weekend programs. Also, CNN International, CNN en Español, and Sanjay Gupta, MD all originate in Atlanta.

And for those down in Atlanta looking for a summer activity, the tours happen seven days a week from 9am-5pmET. They last about an hour, with new ones starting every 10 minutes. For an adult, the cost is $15 dollars.

  • Erika Masonhall has been upped to VP on the NBC News communications team. Masonhall oversees PR for “Nightly News” and “Meet the Press.” Last week, Natalie Raabe, formerly of ABC “World News,” left NBC for The New Yorker where she is the new director of comms.

Brian Williams on Snowden Interview: Guarded Notes, Research ‘With My Life’

WilliamsLast night, Brian Williams revealed details regarding his high-stakes, high-security journey to Moscow for his May interview with Edward Snowden.

“Fake names in the hotel,” William said on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” adding that he told “nosy” people at the airport he was flying to London for a business trip.

In the London airport, Williams says he guarded his notes and research “with my life.”  He was also given advice about his connecting flight to Moscow from a former U.S. official: look for someone on board that looks uncomfortable without anything to read—they’re assigned to travel with you.

Williams also revealed his fake hotel name—Seth Meyers.

‘CBS This Morning’ EP: Facebook Perfect Complement to Our BuzzFeed Partnership

CBSThisMorning304X200Lost Remote reports on the event partnership launching tonight between “BuzzFeed Brews,” Facebook, and “CBS This Morning.”

“CTM” continues as “BuzzFeed Brews’” broadcast production partner, having previously produced interviews with Jerry Seinfeld and Richard Plepler. Tonight’s interview features Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian and BuzzFeed’s Charlie Warzel, taking place at a local New York City Bar and streaming live on Facebook for the first time via BuzzFeed’s page.

“We’ve had a great experience working with Facebook team on a number of projects including our Grammys coverage, and they seemed like the perfect complement to our growing partnership with BuzzFeed,” “CTM” EP and CBS VP of programming Chris Licht tells TVNewser. “We’re always looking to reach new audiences, and this partnership is an exciting extension of the “CBS This Morning” brand.”

“It’s great to see BuzzFeed values what a powerful platform Facebook is for distribution and engagement,” Andy Mitchell, Facebook’s Director for News and Global Media Partnerships tells TVNewser.

The interview will stream live on Facebook at 6:30pmET.

Is Sarah Palin Pitching Herself to ‘The View’?

sarah palin_304x200The rumor mill on who will replace ousted “The View” hosts Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy is in full force, and former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin seems to be throwing her hat in the ring.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Palin talks about possibly co-hosting a political talk show, mentioning that “The View” might be better if it goes “rogue.”

Maybe. But the politics would have to be interspersed with a whole lot of fun and real life and inspiration showcasing American work ethic, because those topics are all pretty much the antithesis of today’s politics, which I find incorrigibly disastrous! It’d be so much fun to shake it up taking on issues that make audiences objectively consider all sides, and I’d do it with my own real-life groundedness, candor and commonsense that I’m known for. Media needs that today, versus the condescension that oozes from TV and radio. I hear everyone recently got canned from The View, maybe a show like that needs a punch of reality and a voice of reason from America’s heartland to knock some humble sense into their scripts. You know, someone willing to go rogue.

In our poll on potential new hosts, NBC’s Ann Curry led the way, followed by CNN’s S.E. Cupp and Palin’s former running mate’s daughter, Meghan McCain.

The Afternoon Ticker: Boehner/CNN, Schieffer, Outnumbered

  • Fox News’ afternoon ensemble show “Outnumbered” launched “Outnumbered Overtime” on Foxnews.com today. The web show will air Monday-Thursday right after “Outnumbered.”
