Eric Bolling Adds To Duties, Taking Over Fox News Weekend Show

Fox News “The Five” co-host Eric Bolling is adding to his duties at the network. According to Hal Boedeker at The Orlando Sentinel, Bolling will become the anchor of “Cashin’ In,” one of FNC’s weekend financial shows.

That program, which offers advice on how people can make their money grow, airs at 11:30 a.m. Saturdays on Fox News. Bolling can draw on his knowledge of commodities, such as oil and gold, and his five years on the New York Mercantile Exchange’s Board of Directors. He later worked as a strategic adviser on the exchange, and he is well versed in economic issues making headlines in the current news cycle.

Bolling is replacing Cheryl Casone, who will remain at Fox News as a contributor to “Fox & Friends” and the anchor of “Markets Now” on FBN.

Inside the Book Party for Melissa Francis’ Diary of a Stage Mother’s Daughter

Melissa Francis jokes that she wants to be writer when she grows up. The Fox Business Network anchor is already on her second career. And with the publication of her memoir, “Diary of a Stage Mother’s Daughter,” she’s on her way to fulfilling that adulthood dream. Francis was feted last night at Astra, an event space overlooking Manhattan’s East River. The memoir is a brutally honest, sometimes painful, yet touching story of life as a child actor. After dozens of commercials, her first big break came on “Little House on the Prairie.”

In a Media Beat interview this summer Francis told us the book, includes “the typical family dramas, set against the backdrop of a very unusual childhood.”

But last night, no drama, just celebrating. Among the guests, FNC/FBN c0-founder and chairman Roger Ailes, FBN EVP Kevin Magee, anchors Neil Cavuto, Liz Claman, Lori Rothman, Cheryl Casone, Elizabeth MacDonald, Tracy Byrnes, Sandra Smith, Nicole Petallides, Tom Sullivan and Dennis Kneale.

From FNC, we spotted Bill Hemmer and chatted with Megyn Kelly about election night, and the moment that took her from the studio through the bowels of Fox News to the decision desk as they explained calling Ohio for Pres. Obama, giving him the election and giving Karl Rove agita. Following many long months of election coverage and, more recently, of Hurricane Sandy, which left her without power for a week, Kelly was looking forward to taking today off.

CBS’s Clarissa Ward Sneaks Into Syria: ‘I Was Fortunate That I Really Did Slip Under The Radar’

For her first assignment since joining CBS News, foreign correspondent Clarissa Ward secretly visited Syria, where foreign journalists have been banned in an ongoing attempt by President Bashar al-Assad to quell opposition.

“I had all sorts of things I wanted to see that I felt American audiences had not been able to see,” Ward tells TVNewser.

Ward entered the country alone on a tourist visa, spending two days in Damascus before she felt comfortable reaching out to an underground network of government defectors she interviewed for the series, which begins this evening.

“I had already been in contact with a network of activists before going in, and once I went in I went to Damascus I posed as a tourist for a few days to make sure I wasn’t being followed,” Ward, who speaks Arabic, says. “I was fortunate that I really did slip under the radar.”
