A few days of covering the Colorado wildfires early last week caught up with Fox News correspondent Adam Housley.
Last Tuesday evening, Housley went to the emergency room in Ft. Collins, CO with an eye irritation. Fox News says the irritation was caused by a combination of the smoke in the air and the lights used for the liveshots. He was treated with eye drops and antibiotics. LA-based Housley has recovered and has already moved on to another story. And on Wednesday he and his wife, actress Tamera Mowry, shared some good news: they’re having a boy.
It looks like Fox News correspondent Adam Housley is going to be a proud father. Housley’s wife, actress Tamera Mowry-Housley (best known for co-starring in the sitcom “Sister Sister” with twin Tia) broke the news to Style Network.
Now Tia and Tamera star in a series for Style Network called, well, “Tia and Tamera,” and you can expect the pregnancy news to play a significant part in the upcoming season.
Tamera also revealed how she told her husband about the news:
How did you break the exciting baby news to Adam?
I actually texted Adam a picture of two pregnancy tests and said, “Happy early Father’s Day!” He said, “Cooool!”
Wow. Is it that time of year all ready?
Well, yes it is. When publishers come up with end of the year lists. Here’s one from the December GQ: the magazine’s list of “The 25 least Influential People Alive” MSNBC’s Ed Schultz comes in at #3. Ouch.
…Then there pundits like Ed Schultz. Do you watch “The Ed Show” on MSNBC? Of course you don’t. No one does. The only reason people watch “The Ed Show” is they’re working out in a hotel gym and they can’t find a staff member to change the channel to ESPN.
Also on the list: Tia and Tamera Mowry (#4). (Tamera married Fox News correspondent Adam Housley over the summer); also Tina Brown (#17), John Boehner (#24) and Pres. Obama (#25). Topping the list former GOP candidate Tim Pawlenty.
Many young men who came of age in the mid to late 90′s are weeping in their mom’s basements right now.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
Update: Tamera and her twin sister Tia are starring in a reality show on Style Network called “Tia & Tamera Take 2″ which will “follow the two sisters as Tamera Mowry gears up for her wedding and marriage to Adam Housley and Tia Mowry gets ready to give birth to her first baby with husband Cory Hardrict.”
With dozens of U.S. TV news journalists now on the ground in Japan, the bosses back home are becoming increasingly concerned about the potential for radiation poisoning due to the deteriorating conditions at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.
ABC’s David Muir, who was in the area of the plant yesterday and moved south after the explosion. During “Nightline” he held up a radiation meter which was not detecting anything out of the ordinary. This morning, that changed Diane Sawyer and her crew began heading back to Tokyo, explaining to George Stephanopoulos on “GMA” that radiation levels had increased through the day. “We came down this highway, the 7 1/2 hour trip,” said Sawyer. “We’re about midway through it now.” Correspondent Clarissa Ward has also moved out of the area. Her Japanese translator left the ABC News team yesterday, fearing radiation poisoning.
Weather becomes an important factor in this story as correspondents and crews watch the wind while covering the story.
“We are closely monitoring the situation, moment by moment,” David Verdi, VP of worldwide news gathering for NBC News tells TVNewser. “We are constantly consulting with our experts and tracking the wind patterns.” In addition to Lester Holt (right), Ann Curry, Chris Jansing, Ian Williams and Lee Cowan are covering for NBC/MSNBC.
CBS’s Harry Smith was in Northern Japan this morning for “The Early Show,” but he and all other CBS staffers have left. “We have moved our teams out of Sendai, Japan and we continue to reassess deployments, as the situation warrants,” says CBS News VP Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews.
CNN has 12 on-air and dozens more off-air staffers in Japan. Anderson Cooper has left the area of the nuclear plant and is heading north and will anchor from Akita, Japan, north of Sendai. “The situation is under constant review and the safety and well-being of our reporters in the field is our top priority,” says a spokesperson.
Fox News says it is constantly evaluating the situation, and has pulled its correspondents back to Tokyo. Shepard Smith, Adam Housley and Greg Palkot are in Tokyo, while David Piper is at Yokota airbase.
Fox News anchor Shepard Smith is heading to Japan and is expected to be in place for his 3pmET show tomorrow, which will be 4am Tuesday morning in Tokyo. Last night, Fox News correspondent Greg Palkot reported from Mito, Japan — his first on-air report since being attacked while covering protests in Egypt last month. He was back on FOX News Sunday this morning.
Fox News is going into overdrive tonight in primetime. There will be two-hour editions of “Fox Report” and “Geraldo at Large.” Adam Housley is also on the scene for Fox and is Tweeting his experience between live shots:
Finishing our food and finally getting some sleep after basically being awake since Thursday Night.
Palkot’s report, after the jump…
Christiane Amanpour is among the network anchors packing their bags and heading for Japan. Amanpour will host “This Week” from Tokyo on Sunday, the only Sunday show host to do so. ABC News says “World News” weekend anchor David Muir, and correspondent Clarissa Ward are also en route to Japan to report on the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami.
And here’s who is going, or already there, for CNN.
But it’s Amanpour who gives real meaning to the term globetrotter.
All three cable news channels covered the rescue of the trapped miners in Chile in the late evening. On the broadcast networks, ABC’s Diane Sawyer broke into regular programming with a special report just after 11 PM ET when the first miner was pulled from the ground.
Overnight, CNN and MSNBC were live covering the rescue of the trapped miners in Chile.
MSNBC had Chris Jansing anchoring from 1 AM until “Morning Joe.” Jansing was back on the air at 10 AM this morning, wearing the same outfit she wore overnight.
CNN went to a simulcast of CNN International starting at 1 AM ET and running until “American Morning” started at 5 AM.
Adam Housley and actress Tamera Lowry came home from an exciting vacation in Europe — one in which the FNCer proposed to the “Sister, Sister” star — to find their smartphones inundated with messages about a supposed rift in the Mowry family about the engagement.
Yesterday, a “source close to the couple” told E! that “they were engaged a few years ago, but broke it off” and that “her family is not crazy about him…Tia and Adam don’t always get along, but the couple are happy together and giving it another try.”
But a source close to the couple tells TVNewser that LA-based Housley and the Mowry family “get along fabulously and have for a long time.” TVNewser has also learned that Tia as well as the twins’ brother are in the wedding party. Our source also disputes E!’s reporting that a previous engagement was broken off, calling it “laughable.”
The gossip spread quickly around the web and was even reported on some local newscasts. The local FOX O&O in Orlando, WOFL, went so far as to misreport that Housley “popped the question to another FOX correspondent.” Frankly, we’d love to see this happen, but it seems unlikely.
This morning, Housley tweeted a photo of the happy couple (right) taken in Dubrovnik, Croatia.
