Dr. Sanjay Gupta and ‘Wolfman’

After his book part last night — which Alex attended and writes up here — CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta is making the rounds today to promote “Monday Mornings,” including an appearance on a competing network.

“He finally found himself on the right network,” joked Brian Kilmeade on Fox & Friends. Toward the end of the interview Kilmeade asked, “If you had a choice of hanging out with Anderson Cooper or Wolf Blitzer, who would you choose?”

Kilmeade gave him a chance to duck the question, but Gupta shot back: “Wolfman. Every single time.” Gupta is appearing on Cooper’s syndicated show Thursday and was on with CNN’s Soledad O’Brien and Carol Costello this morning.

The “Fox and Friends” trio also asked Gupta about his “60 Minutes” report Sunday on Khan Academy. Video after the jump…

CNN Names New EP for Weekend Morning Show

As Randi Kaye takes over as anchor of CNN’s weekend morning show, the network has also named a new executive producer for the program, Nora Zimmett.

Zimmett joins CNN from Bloomberg TV, where she was a senior producer in Los Angeles. Before joining Bloomberg, she worked as a producer at HDNet and Fox News Channel.

Bryan Bell is also moving to CNN’s Atlanta bureau as the executive producer of the 9-11amET hours of “CNN Newsroom.” Bell, who has been with CNN for more than a decade, has spent the last six years as a member of the senior production team of CNN’s morning programming.

Networks, Cablers Plan Coverage of the Final Launch of NASA’s Space Shuttle Program

Tomorrow at 11:25 AM ET, the Space Shuttle Atlantis is scheduled to launch, the final launch of NASA’s Space Shuttle Program, which first sent craft into orbit in 1981. There is a strong chance that weather could delay the launch, but that isn’t stopping the broadcast networks and cable news organizations from planning extensive coverage to mark the occasion.

NBC News is planning a special report to be anchored by Brian Williams in New York. Jay Barbree, the only journalist to cover every manned space mission, will “call” the launch from Cape Canaveral.

ABC News is planning a special report to be anchored by “Good Morning America” news anchor Josh Elliott in New York. Matt Gutman will be on the scene in Florida for the network.

CBS News is sending “CBS Evening News” anchor Scott Pelley to Cape Canaveral, where he will anchor a special report as well as that evening’s broadcast.

CNN to Examine ‘Broken Government’

brokengov_2-19.jpgCNN launches its latest “Broken Government” series of reports and analysis next week, just a few days after Vice President Joe Biden declared on CBS: “Washington, right now, is broken.”

Senate Holds Christmas Eve Health Care Reform Vote

At 7amET, the U.S. Senate held its final vote on the health care reform bill, and it passed 60-39.

Bret Baier came in during “Fox & Friends” to anchor Fox News coverage of the vote from Washington beginning around 6:55amET.

Just before 6:30amET, MSNBC broke away from a special edition of “Morning Joe” while David Shuster anchored breaking news coverage.

CNN stuck with “American Morning,” which was anchored by Rob Marciano and Carol Costello who were in for John Roberts and Kiran Chetry this morning. Jessica Yellin was reporting from the Capitol.

On the broadcast networks, the morning shows handled the vote within their top stories. Many of the usual anchors were out, including on “Good Morning America” where Bill Weir was in for George Stephanopoulos.

The last time the Senate held a roll call on Christmas eve was 1895.

‘It’s Six Degrees of Cleveland’

cleveland_12-7.jpgWhat do FBN’s Liz Claman, NBC’s Al Roker, and CNN’s Tony Harris all have in common? They worked in local TV in Cleveland, OH.

An article in today’s Cleveland Plain Dealer catalogs the many tv newsers who came out of that market, which includes Claman (WEWS), Roker (WKYC), and Harris (WJW), who hosted Channel 8′s “P.M. Magazine.”

At Fox, Claman is joined by Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson (WOIO) and FBN’s Adam Shapiro (WEWS), both Cleveland TV veterans.

“I don’t think it’s just magic that we all ended up at Fox,” Claman said. “I think it’s because Cleveland is a big, grown-up city and a big market that tests your skills and your personality. I know that I learned more in Cleveland about relating to an audience than I did anywhere else.”

Others who worked in Cleveland: HLN’s Robin Meade (WJW), CNN’s Carol Costello (WAKR), NBC’s Martin Savidge (WJW), NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell (WJW) (who is on the cover of Cleveland Magazine this month).

And that’s your Midwestern trivia for today, Monday, December 7th.

Rob Marciano Causes John Roberts to Walk off the ‘AM’ Set

Today on “American Morning,” CNN weather anchor Rob Marciano made a comment to co-hosts John Roberts and Carol Costello that, perhaps, came off a little differently than he meant it. After bursting into laughter, Roberts actually stood up and just walked off.
