The Ticker: Gasparino, Hollywood, Couric

FBN’s Charlie Gasparino: CNBC’s Gary Kaminsky To Join Morgan Stanley

It isn’t very often that talent on one cable news channel breaks news about talent at another cable news channel. But Fox Business Network’s Charlie Gasparino did just that this morning.

Gasparino, a former correspondent for CNBC, reported that his former colleague, CNBC’s capital markets editor Gary Kaminsky would be leaving the cable news channel to join Morgan Stanley as vice chair of its brokerage unit. He hedged his wording a bit, noting that talks were ongoing and it was “not a done deal,” but the message was clear:


Update: It’s official, Morgan Stanley’s internal announcement, below.

Charlie Gasparino Re-Signs With Fox Business

Fox Business has re-signed Charlie Gasparino to a multi-year deal. Gasparino will continue in his role as senior correspondent for both FBN and Fox News Channel.

“Charlie thrives on holding Wall Street accountable and his tenacious, hard-nosed approach to journalism has made him one of the most respected reporters in the industry. We look forward to his continued success in breaking market-moving news,” FBN EVP Kevin Magee said in a statement.

Gasparino joined FBN from CNBC in 2010. In a statement, he praised FBN, saying the network “doesn’t play the Wall Street apology game, which gives me the freedom to do my job.”

Charlie Gasparino and The Billionaire Brawl

A few weeks ago, feuding billionaires Bill Ackman and Carl Icahn had a very nasty fight live on CNBC over Herbalife, a global nutrition company. The saga continued Wednesday evening, with Ackman using his keynote address at the Harbor Investment Conference — which all three business networks have been covering — to continue his assertion that the company is a pyramid scheme.

As proof, Ackman cited a recent interview Charlie Gasparino did with Herbalife president Des Walsh, reading aloud from the FBN transcript. The interesting part: CNBC and Bloomberg were both airing Ackman’s remarks live, meaning that Gasparino’s interview was indirectly touted on the competing networks. Watch:

The New York Election Ticker: Empire State Building, Times Square, Rockefeller Center

  • CNN is trying to one-up NBC in the “let’s project electoral votes on buildings” contest. CNN will power lights showing Obama and Romney’s electoral totals on the Empire State Building. You can see a photo of the spire as it will look tonight here. Unlike 30 Rock, The Empire State Building wont have any CNN branding.
  • FBN is promoting its election coverage in the heart of New York finance. Yesterday Charlie Gasparino rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange, while today Liz Claman will ring the NASDAQ closing bell, and will anchor her show from its MarketSite in Times Square.
  • MSNBC’s Chris Matthews took over a segment on “Now with Alex Wagner” today on NBC’s set in Rockefeller Center (sorry, “Democracy Plaza“), taking the opportunity to chastise anyone who doesn’t vote, or doesn’t vote for a Democrat or Republican

Mayor Bloomberg Opens NYSE in First Post-Sandy Trading Day

The New York Stock Exchange opened at 9:30am, after being closed for two days due to Hurricane Sandy. With power out to most of downtown Manhattan — including mediabistro HQ, we’re all working from home, or other’s homes — some of the data is not displaying as normal. CNBC’s Melissa Lee assuring viewers, “There’s nothing wrong with the trading on the Dow. It’s just the data feed coming into this one screen on the exchange. Most of the others ones are black because we’re running on generator power.” FBN aired an opening bell special report with Neil Cavuto, Liz Claman and Charlie Gasparino.

The last time the NYSE closed for two days due to weather was in 1888.

Fox Business Turns Five

Five years ago this week, Fox Business Network launched in some 30 million homes, and with a big party at the Met. We thought it was time to take a look back.

Today, the channel is in nearly 60 million homes (although on digital tiers outside of New York City) Update: According to Nielsen, it is now in 68 million households, and according to News Corp. COO Chase Carey it is no longer losing money. Aside from a strong performance by Lou Dobbs at 7 PM, and some non-business specials like the political conventions, the network is far behind CNBC in just about every daypart. That said, many programs, like “Varney & Co.” have had some daily wins against the more widely-distributed CNBC competition.

While there have been stalwarts of the channel (Neil Cavuto comes to mind), there have been a flurry of changes too, as is typical in the TV universe. Alexis Glick, who was there from the beginning, left two years after it launched. “Imus in the Morning” was added to the lineup, but the relationship between the provocative radio host and FBN management has ranged from cool to sour, at least on-air. That said, Imus has never said anything negative about Roger Ailes on-air.

In 2010, the network launched a new slogan and branding campaign, promoting “The Power to Prosper.”
