The president took two questions. The first went to the Associated Press’s Jim Kuhnhenn; the second to Reuters’ Steve Holland.

Charlie Rose on ‘CBS This Morning’: ‘We Have the Things That Matter’

CBS This Morning's Charlie RoseCharlie Rose thinks “CBS This Morning” has the right ingredients to continue its momentum among the morning shows.

“We have the things that matter,” Rose told TVNewser at yesterday’s Peabody Awards ceremony, where he was awarded for his 2013 interview with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“We have a great production team, we’ve got things that the audience likes, in terms of the ‘Eye Opener,’ in terms of the way the set works.”

Rose also highlighted other important aspects of the show’s success, starting with his co-hosts Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell.

“I sit next to two very bright and smart women, and the chemistry between all three of us is very good. And we’ve been able to take advantage of all of the capacity of CBS News as an organization, and as individuals, for great storytelling.”

“All of that, I think, has given us the kind of momentum we have,” Rose added.

Anthony Bourdain’s Peabody Award for Making ‘Some Pretty Strange and Fun Television’

BrokawPeabodyAnthony Bourdain is grateful for the Peabody Award which was presented to his CNN show “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown” today. But he tells TVNewser he leaves the programming, ratings and other network matters to others.

“I’m grateful that, for whatever reason, CNN has chosen to allow us the budget, the resources, and the support to go out and make some pretty strange and fun television,” Bourdain told TVNewser on the red carpet of the 73rd annual ceremony this afternoon. “Who’s watching it, whether males, 25-30, I frankly just don’t much give a f*ck.”

“I make the show. I’m glad that anyone’s looking at it,” said Bourdain, who is among several hosts taking over CNN’s 9pm timeslot starting tonight.

“CBS This Morning” co-anchor Charlie Rose also took home a Peabody Award for his interview with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“This was the height of a very big story,” Rose said about his September interview which took place two weeks after a deadly chemical weapons attack in Damascus. “This was a man who thought at anytime, the Americans, along with their allies, might make a decision to attack.”

Tom Brokaw, who also spoke with us about his battle with cancer, accepted his personal Peabody on behalf of hundreds of others over the years who’ve helped him report meaningful TV from around the world. “I had wonderful colleagues, some of who are no longer with us unfortunately,” Brokaw told us. “You don’t do this on your own. You get to where you are when

Tom Brokaw on Cancer: ‘I’ve Approached It Both in Human Terms and As a Journalist’

BrokawRoseTom Brokaw is a journalist through and through, even as he undergoes treatment for bone marrow cancer.

“I think I’m going to be okay,” Brokaw told TVNewser this afternoon at the Peabody Awards ceremony in New York City, where he was honored with a Personal Peabody Award. “I’ve approached it [dealing with cancer] both in human terms, and as a journalist.” He’s researched as much as he can about the cancer he’s being treated for — multiple myeloma — and about how other cancers. Brokaw continues to report for “Today,” and “NBC Nightly News,” and will be doing special pieces for the upcoming 70th anniversary of D-Day, all while undergoing treatment. Brokaw led NBC’s coverage of the 60th anniversary of D-Day from Normandy, France.

This afternoon, he took time to catch up with fellow Peabody Award recipient, “CBS This Morning” co-anchor Charlie Rose. (More on the awards, later)

“There’s a larger light at the end of the tunnel,” Brokaw says. While there are “no guarantees,” the NBC Newsman says he’s fortunate to have access to the type of medical treatment he needs.

A Day in the Life of Charlie Rose

A local North Carolina station tracked a day in the life of one of their own recently, following “CBS This Morning’s” Charlie Rose on one of his average 17-hour days.

“The only question is, why does anyone want to do a day in my life?” Rose asked WBTV’s Kristen Miranda. Co-anchor Gayle King asked if Charlie was aware of the video shoot. “When they said there was a crew here coming to cover Charlie, I said, ‘Does Charlie Know?’” adding he never agrees to these types of personal profiles.

“CBS This Morning” EP Chris Licht reveals how Rose motivates him: “He’s just a great person, and he has this zest and love of life and news and curiosity that I feed off of.”

And a day in the life of Charlie Rose doesn’t stop at his TV news colleagues–even Oprah got in on the action.

TVNewsers turned up last night to celebrate TIME’s 100 most-influential people. This year, CBS’s Charlie Rose and FNC’s Megyn Kelly made this list. Former honorees Rupert Murdoch, Matt Lauer, Katie Couric, Mehmet Oz and Barbara Walters made an appearance at last night’s event to mingle with the eclectic crowd of politicians, activists, scientists and entrepreneurs.

“Feels great, [I'm] honored, I love it,” Rose told us about his appearance as an Icon in this year’s TIME 100. However, he wasn’t quite sure if “Icon” was the appropriate designation: “It sounds like a lifetime achievement thing, and I think I’m in mid-career,” he quipped. Read more

Megyn Kelly, Charlie Rose on TIME 100

Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 7.53.04 AMTIME magazine is out with its annual TIME 100 list of the most influential people in the world.

Megyn Kelly, the anchor of Fox News Channel’s 9pm hour, is a Pioneer on the list while Charlie Rose, the co-host of “CBS This Morning,” is listed as an Icon. The list runs the gamut: from Pres. Obama to Edward Snowden; from Pope Francis to Miley Cyrus. Seth Myers, Jeff Bezos and both Koch brothers are also on it.

Brit Hume, who gets some of the credit for Kelly’s success, writes in TIME, “Ten years ago, my wife Kim, then Fox News’ Washington bureau chief, walked into my office carrying a videocassette. ‘You have got to see this,’ Kim said. It was the audition tape of a local TV reporter then named Megyn Kendall.

About Rose, Michael Bloomberg writes, “Over the years, political commentary on television — from both the left and the right — has grown more and more shrill. Both sides talk past each other in an endless repetition of poll-tested sound bites. And that’s why Charlie Rose matters more than ever.”

Who did TIME overlook? Let us know in the comments…

Hillary Clinton Sees Media Double Standard Toward Women

abc_hillary_clinton_nightline_interview_lpl_130129_mnAt a “Women in the World” event in New York City last night, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed her view of a double standard in how women are talked about in the media, Politico’s Maggie Haberman reports.

“There is a double standard,” Clinton said. “The double standard is alive and well, and I think in many respects the media is the principal propagator of its persistence,” she added.

She added advice for women, suggesting they not take criticism personally, but instead seriously. Clinton’s comments about the media’s gender double standard come a day after a new Women’s Media Center report showed a different issue when it comes to females and the media: a wide gap between the number of female media figures and their male counterparts.
