David Doss Leaving CNN’s ‘AC360′

The senior executive producer of CNN’s “AC360,” David Doss, is leaving the program, TVNewser has learned.

He will remain with CNN, and will work in the network’s program development group under Sue Bunda. CNN/U.S. executive VP Ken Jautz made the announcement to staffers this morning.

“Ken wanted to tap into David’s talents on behalf of more shows,” a CNN insider says.

Doss is a veteran of ABC News and NBC News, where he served as executive producer of “NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw” and worked with Diane Sawyer and Charles Gibson on “PrimeTime Thursday.”

He joined “AC360″ in 2005 as executive producer, but has since been joined by longtime Cooper producer Charlie Moore, who currently serves as EP. With Doss leaving, Moore will take over day-to-day oversight of “AC360.”

TV News Producers, Execs and Personalities Compete in NYC Triathlon

Cuomo071910.jpg Yesterday was the 2010 Nautica New York City Triathlon, and a flurry of TV news staffers, executives and personalities participated. As we reported over the weekend, Fox Business Network’s Liz Claman was among those biking, swimming and running to the finish line.

Other boldface names included CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta and ABC News’ Chris Cuomo, who is pictured here with the medal given to those that complete the race. Cuomo posted the photo to his Facebook page.

CNN had a number of other staffers participate in the race, according to a blog post recapping the day’s festivities: executive producer Roni Selig joined Gupta and producers Anthony Fox, John Bonifield, Caitlin Hagan, Danielle Dellorto, Charlie Moore and Jeff Kepnes (who just happens to be Liz Claman’s husband) in the race.

In addition to Cuomo, senior producer Sharon Hoffman crossed the finish line for team ABC News.

WNYW, the local Fox affiliate, was a media sponsor of the triathlon, and had a number of staffers and executives participating, including former Fox News exec Jack Abernathy, who currently oversees the Fox Television Stations group.

As for Claman, she sent this tweet out shortly after finishing the race: “Gang,I’m back & I did it-Tough weather conditions HOT but I didn’t try 2 push it. Got kicked a few times in the river but the bike/run good!”

The Hudson river does get pretty crowded this time of year.

AC360 Team Receives January Sidney Award

CNN photojournalist Neil Hallsworth, “AC360″ EP Charlie Moore, and Anderson Cooper were presented with the Sidney Hillman Foundation Award today in NYC for their coverage of the earthquake in Haiti (photo below). Cooper was out in LA over the weekend where he attended the Vanity Fair Oscar Party and was seen driving around with Nancy Reagan.

Cooper Wins Sidney Award

CNN’s Anderson Cooper — along with producer Charlie Moore and cameraman Neil Hallsworth — has been awarded the January Sidney Award “for his network’s unrivaled coverage of the devastation following the recent earthquake in Haiti.” The Sidney Award is a monthly social justice journalism award given by the Hillman Foundation. Cooper returned to Haiti last week to continue coverage, though at least one writer was not as impressed during the second go-around.

Planet Still in Peril on CNN

pip_12-10.jpgWithin the next few days, CNN is expecting a big response from several corporations and individuals who may not be very happy with the way they are portrayed in the upcoming two-hour documentary, “Planet in Peril: Battle Lines.”

“I expect them to, in a perfect world, to say ‘we weren’t really aware of what’s going on, but we’re going to do something about it,’” EP David Doss tells TVNewser following the premiere of “Planet in Peril” last night at the Time Warner Center. “Or I think we’ll probably hear from the attorneys from other companies. That’s the range.”

The “Planet in Peril” series enters its second year tomorrow at 9pmET, and puts its three correspondents, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Anderson Cooper and Lisa Ling (and producer Charlie Moore, pictured) in a series of dangerous situations, in order to report on environmental crises around the world.

There’s Cooper swimming with great white sharks, without a cage. Gupta in a Peruvian town where 98% of the children are poisoned by the pollutants in the air. Ling to an African separatist organization firing guns haphazardly while she reports just yards a way. In total, the reporting takes the viewer to 11 countries and four continents.

“I didn’t get the sense that there were any limits about what we can do,” Gupta tells us. “It’s a big undertaking.”

Tina Brown, Mo Rocca, Ali Velshi and others made up the audience. But when we heard someone ask what the average person can do to help out during the Q&A session, and turned around to see Survivor: Africa winner Ethan Zohn, we had to ask what brought him to the event.
