HLN’s Kyra Phillips on Keeping Viewers Hooked After the Jodi Arias Trial Ends

HLN has seen its viewership increase during the Jodi Arias murder trial, but what happens after the verdict is reached?

In this episode of Media Beat, “Raising America” anchor Kyra Phillips tells TVNewser’s managing editor Chris Ariens about the opportunity and the challenge presented by the network’s coverage of the Arias trial. “I want to say to them, ‘OK, I get it. I understand you’re interested in this. OK, we can give you some of that. We can continue to give you that. But also give me a chance to show you another way that we do TV, another way that we do news.”

Maria Bartiromo: New Book ‘My Way of Sharing What I’ve Learned’

Bartiromo Book.jpgCNBC’s Maria Bartiromo speaks with Woman’s Day about her new book, The 10 Laws of Enduring Success, due out March 30. Excerpts:

• “I’ve had the great fortune to talk to some of the most successful people in the world. My new book…is my way of sharing what I’ve learned from them about what it takes to be (and stay!) successful — not just financially, but in terms of happiness too.”

• “Having a well-balanced life has been tough for me. Work is so much of my life, but I’m lucky to have a husband who understands. You have to try to give each thing its time, like family, exercise, hobbies. If you can do that, then I think you can find a balance.”

• “The only way for a woman to gain respect in a male-dominated field is to have the know-how. My mom always told me that there are no shortcuts, and she was right.”

TVNewser’s Chris Ariens spoke with Bartiromo in January about the book and how journalists can find ‘enduring success’ in a changing media landscape.

Last One…

It started with some intern gossip at “Dayside with Linda Vester.” We had heard the rumors, and asked a producer if it was true — “Go check TVNewser.”

From that point on I was hooked — a daily reader, an occasional anonymous tipster (like here) and when the associate editor position opened up, I jumped at the opportunity.

After more than 18 months, I’m truly honored to have been a part of what Brian Stelter started and Chris Ariens has continued.

Now, I go back to being a regular reader. Brian closed his goodbye with, “I still have a lot to learn.” I do too — but thanks to everyone at mediabistro.com, I’m off to a good start.

Rick Klein: Your TVNewser Bracket Challenge ’09 Champ

standings_4-7.bmp

Well, as Tyler Hansborough fulfilled his destiny and hoisted the NCAA Championship trophy last night, ABC News’ Rick Klein was fulfilling his destiny as winner of the TVNewser Bracket Challenge ’09.

The inaugural champion edged out championship game surges from CBS’ Jeff Glor (finishing 2nd) and TVNewser editor Chris Ariens (tied for 3rd), while CNN correspondent Joe Johns‘ (3rd) hopes of winning it all were dashed as Michigan St. fell to UNC.

Thanks to all who participated, and enjoy your reign on top, Rick.

> Update: Klein tweets the victory was “among my prouder accomplishments.”

Klein vs. Johns: It All Comes Down To The Spartans

standings_3-30.bmp

There are just two possible winners of the TVNewser Bracket Challenge ’09: ABC’s Rick Klein and CNN’s Joe Johns. Klein has the five-point lead, but only has UNC in the finals. Johns has Michigan St. winning it all — if that happens, he wins. If the Spartans can win just one game, and face Villanova in the finals, Johns and Klein tie.

Just three brackets (Johns, CBS’ Jeff Glor and TVNewser editor Chris Ariens) still have their champ pick alive in the Final Four.

The Note Takes The Lead

standings_3-23.bmp

With the Sweet 16 set in the NCAA tournament, ABC’s Rick Klein has surged into the lead in the TVNewser Bracket Challenge ’09.

Klein has one of the four brackets (along with MSNBC’s Willie Geist, CBS’ Jeff Glor and TVN editor Chris Ariens) with all Elite Eight teams still intact. The leader after Day 1, CNN’s Joe Johns, fell back into the pack, and his pick of Michigan in the Final Four will hurt his chances at victory.

And although he’s currently sitting in last place, ABC’s John Berman writes on the league’s message board: “I might be last…but I am leading in the demo.”
