Networks Will Cover Chuck Hagel Resignation

abccbsnbclogosLess than a week after the White House got annoyed over major broadcast networks skipping President Barack Obama‘s address on immigration, networks will cover today’s special report on Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announcing his resignation.

ABC News is breaking into regularly scheduled programming today at approximately 11:10amET. George Stephanopoulos anchors for the network from New York with live reporting from Martha Raddatz and Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl from Washington D.C.

NBC will provide a special report, anchored by Savannah Guthrie in New York. As part of NBC’s coverage, Jim Miklaszewski will be at the Pentagon and Chris Jansing at the White House.

CBS will not air a special report, but will cover the announcement on CBSN. The cable news networks — which have been covering the news since The New York Times broke the story just after 9am — will also cover Obama’s remarks.

Fox broadcasting is offering an optional special report for affiliates.

Chris Jansing Reporting Her Health to Officials Twice Daily

JansingWHUSome of you have been asking about NBC News senior White House correspondent Chris Jansing who, having returned last week from a reporting trip to Africa with U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power, is back on the job at the White House.

Jansing, who was called upon by Pres. Obama at his news conference today, traveled to Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.

Jansing and other members of the trip are following the same protocols as Ambassador Power, which includes self-monitoring and reporting their temperatures twice a day for 21 days. Jansing, we’re told, is reporting her readings to the Washington, DC Department of Health. But because she did not come in contact with Ebola patients, there is no requirement for isolation or quarantine.

Obama to Voters: I Hear You. Obama to Fox News: I’ve Missed You

ObamaMidtermsNewser21“To everyone that voted,” Pres. Obama said at the start of his post-midterm election news conference today, “I want you to know that I heard you. To the two-thirds of voters that chose not to participate in the process yesterday, I hear you too.”

Carried on all the broadcast networks and cable news networks, the president said he has three priorities where he’ll need the help of the current Congress, before the new Republican-controlled Congress gets to work in January.

1) Ebola funding, 2) a new authorization for use of military force against ISIS and 3) passing a federal budget.

Following his remarks the president took his first question from Julie Pace of the Associated Press, the second question went to Reuters’ Jeff Mason, the third went to Chris Jansing from NBC News, and the fourth to Jon Karl of ABC News. “I would enjoy having some Kentucky Bourbon with Mitch McConnell,” said the president when Karl asked about his relationship with the soon-to-be Majority Leader. The next question when to Phil Mattingly of BloombergTV.

The president next went to Ed Henry of Fox News. “I’ve missed you guys. I haven’t done this in a while,” the president joked. “I know. I miss you,” Henry shot back. Sam Stein of the Huffington Post got the next question.

Major Garrett of CBS News got the next question, saying to the president: “If you do miss us, allow me to suggest we do this every week.”

“We might. Who knows? I’m having great time,” said Obama. Jim Acosta of CNN got the next question. The last question went to Scott Horsley of NPR.

Chris Jansing on ‘Risk’ and Reward of Traveling to West Africa Covering Ebola Outbreak

JansingAfricaNBC’s senior White House correspondent Chris Jansing has landed in the epicenter of the Ebola crisis: Guinea, in West Africa. Jansing is the only TV journalist traveling with U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power, the highest ranking U.S. official to travel to Africa since the crisis began.

“I am on the Ambassador’s plane and we will have a health expert with us at every stop,” Jansing tells TVNewser. “I feel completely comfortable that every possible precaution has been taken to assure our health and safety.”

While in Africa, Jansing will travel to remote parts of Liberia where she’ll interview members of the U.S. military as well as doctors, nurses and other medical professionals from NGOs who are fighting the pandemic on the front lines.

Jansing’s NBC News colleagues, including Dr. Nancy Snyderman, finished a 21-day quarantine Thursday following their reporting trip to Liberia earlier this month. Ashoka Mukpo, an NBC News freelancer working with Snyderman was diagnosed with the disease on Oct. 2. He was declared Ebola-free last Tuesday.

Jansing’s previously planned reporting trip covering President Obama’s upcoming meetings in Asia and Australia is off. China, for one, wouldn’t allow her entry within 21 days of traveling to West Africa.

“I’ll have a front row seat, witnessing why Ebola is still winning in West Africa,” Jansing says. “Yes, there is always some risk. But there’s an incredible and important story to be told.”

I’m happy a lot. Anytime I’m with close family and friends. Doing breaking news. Traveling. Meeting interesting people and experiencing new things. And it makes me very happy to throw a great dinner party with fun people around the table that lasts for hours. There should always be a cheese course.

kelly sandbergFox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly sat down with People to discuss juggling motherhood and her career, which doesn’t leave much room for sleep.

I have a set up that allows me to be a stay-at-home mom in the day and fulltime employee in the night. It works out well for my home and work life, but it doesn’t leave a lot of time for rest.

Phil Griffin on MSNBC Daytime: ‘Tough Stretch’ but ‘In This for the Long-term’

phil-griffinOn the same day ratings showed a 7-year low for MSNBC, TVNewser spoke to network president Phil Griffin at a luncheon for new morning anchor Jose Díaz-Balart.

“I think we’ve done a lot of good stuff,” Griffin told us regarding the changes he’s made this year to the daytime lineup, which includes adding Ronan Farrow and Joy Reid at 1pm and 2pmET, respectively.

“It’s been a tough run honestly since it’s happened because of the storylines, but I’ve been really pleased. Ronan’s done a lot of good stuff,” he continued, noting a story Farrow did on rape kit backlogs across the country.

“I’m in this for the long term. This has been a tough stretch, for everybody, but I think we’ve got the right people. Look, we’ll probably tinker with it, you always have to figure out where you are and how the world is changing. We should, we gotta respond.”

Will that tinkering include adding new hosts and shifting others around? “Look, I’m always looking at things. I just think you’ve got to respond. Look what’s happening out there and how the country has changed over the last couple of years. I think there’s been a big change.”

So far this year, Griffin added Díaz-Balart, who is Telemundo’s main anchor, at 10amET following Chris Jansing‘s move to NBC News. He shifted Tamron Hall from 2pm to 11amET, Andrea Mitchell from 1pm to noonET, and Alex Wagner from noon to 4pmET. Griffin currently has the 9amET hour to fill following Chuck Todd‘s ascension to “Meet the Press.”

JansingMTPFollowing her fill-in stint on “Meet the Press” Sunday, NBC’s senior White House correspondent Chris Jansing sent an email to the MTP staff to thank them for making her feel welcome. “I honestly can’t remember a time when I didn’t watch Meet The Press,” Jansing wrote. “And moving to the White House a scant six weeks ago, it never crossed my mind that I would be hosting it.” Jansing, along with MTP EP Rob Yarin and senior editor Shawna Thomas traveled to Guatemala last week to cover Sen. Rand Paul‘s mission to perform eye surgeries on those who otherwise couldn’t have afforded it. The interview aired on “Meet the Press” Sunday and will be turned into a half-hour special airing this weekend on MSNBC. Chuck Todd takes over as moderator Sept. 7. He’s back on MSNBC this morning hosting his “Daily Rundown.”
