Shalev: “I’d Rather Be In Third And Growing Than In Second And Dropping”

shalev_6-17.jpgThe New York Observer’s Felix Gillette spent a rainy Friday at the U.S.S. Intrepid last week for a profile of The Early Show EP Zev Shalev.

He talked about the gains made by the 3rd place network morning show. “I’d rather be in third and growing than in second and dropping,” he said. “There’s less pressure. We have the luxury of experimenting.”

Shalev, who was born in Israel and raised in South Africa, said of foreign coverage: “Sometimes I think American media can be very shut off from the rest of the world. There are a lot of interesting stories out there. You just have to find the right way in.”

Shalev talked about the calm and good attitude at the CBS program now, after a tumultuous time before he took over. Or, as Gillette describes it, “the ghost of Shelley Ross felt long since exorcised.”

Said Shalev, “I think that we have a real spirit now that is terrific.”
