Overnight Chilean Mine Coverage Notes

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.

Fox Newser Meets Hollywood Gossips

tamera_housley_7-29.jpgAdam 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.

Guess Who Adam Housley Just Got Engaged To

Fox News correspondent Adam Housley got engaged last week to actress Tamera Mowry. Yes, the Tamera of Tia and Tamera. This Tamera:

E! has more gossip about Housley and his sister-in-law-to-be Tia Mowry, who’s married to actor Cory Hardrict, if you’re interested in that sort of thing.

Congrats to the couple. Might we suggest a wedding march:

Keith Olbermann Mourns George Steinbrenner

Steinbrenner071310.jpg On his MLBlog, MSNBC host Keith Olbermann weighs in on one of today’s big news stories: the passing of New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner.

I mean this with no disrespect and with no touch of humor: Only George Steinbrenner could pass away on the morning of – and thus overshadow – baseball’s All-Star Game.

Olbermann is a veteran of ESPN and Fox Sports, where he covered playoff baseball extensively. He says has known Steinbrenner since was 14, and first interviewed “The Boss” as far back as 1980. Olbermann’s mother also became a part of baseball lore in 2000, when she was struck in the head by an errant throw from Yankees second baseman Chuck Knoblauch:

FNC Correspondent Uses CES Tech to Report from Haiti a Week Later

housley_1-20.jpgFox News correspondent Adam Housley was out in Las Vegas covering the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month. A week later he was in Haiti, using the same technology he’d seen there to quickly turn around raw footage and reporting:

Housley wound up using a plug-in mike he found at the show to record better audio for reports shot on his iPhone. Then, a little more tech wizardry allowed Housley and his cameraman, Eric Barnes, to turn rescue footage shot by Congressman Kendrick Meek of Florida into broadcast news.

As for getting involved, Housley wants to stay out of the way. “The point is, the story isn’t about us,” he said. “Our job is to show it. We will never leave somebody hanging, but if we were to go out there all of a sudden with water in the back of our truck, passing it out every time we do a story, it would cause more of a problem than a help.

David Spade: FNC Watcher, Gun Donator

spade_12-23.bmpFox News has reported last night and today on a $100,000 donation made by actor/comedian David Spade to his hometown of Phoenix’s police department so the PD could buy new rifles.

This comes in response to a FOX Report story about the department’s need for updated firearms. “Phoenix PD says after seeing the story he called them and said he wanted to give them some money to donate to their program,” reported Adam Housley last night on The FOX Report.

Spade showed up in person to give the donation, but did not speak to the media, instead issuing this statement from his publicist: “These guys need to be able to do their jobs and I’m just happy I can help.” Is there a “Just Shoot Me” reference to be made here? Please add yours in the comments.
