FBN’s Liz Claman: Live from Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum

Since Liz Claman moved from CNBC to FBN in 2007, she’s covered a lot of exciting events, but the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland — with its 110-page program — is one of the most energetic and overwhelming events of the year.

Claman took some time between live shots and interviews to talk to TVNewser while in Switzerland.

TVNewser: A lot of media is out there with you. How has it been interacting with the rest of the media there?

Liz Claman: With 240 reporting media on the ground in Davos, with many of us chasing the same people, we’ve taken the “We’re all in this together approach” and turned it into a mutually beneficial relationship for everyone around whom we’re working.  Listen, the Chinese are directly next door, New Delhi TV a floor below, al Jazeera and the BBC running around.. I mean, at some point someone’s going to need a camera battery or an extra hand trouble-shooting, and it’s better to be friend than foe. Aw, look, a classic Davos issue: coming together to solve world problems! It’s working!

TVNewser: You left CNBC in 2007. Have you seen any of your old CNBC colleagues there?

NBCU CEO Jeff Zucker’s Departure: How the Business Networks Covered It

Bloomberg, CNBC and Fox Business Network all covered the announcement that NBC Universal CEO Jeff Zucker would step down once Comcast completed its acquisition of the company.

Two of the networks delivered particularly interesting coverage: CNBC and FBN.

CNBC reported the news at almost the exact same time the New York Times posted its story this morning. Then later in the day, David Faber appeared, and was asked what Zucker’s legacy would be:

The growth of the cable networks, undoubtedly like our own. At the end of the day, in reporting of course on the Comcast transaction As I did for so many days for almost a year ago, when the speculation at least began, their focus was always on the cable networks owned by NBC Universal. There’s no doubt they grew enormously under the stewardship of Mr. Zucker. Whether it’s CNBC or Bravo or USA, many of those networks are producing prodigious amounts of cash flow.

On FBN, former CNBCer Charlie Gasparino (who was never turned down an opportunity to discuss his old network), talked about a possible change in reporting lines between NBC News president Steve Capus and CNBC chief Mark Hoffman:

CNBC Stars Play Prominent Role in 20th Century Fox’s ‘Wall Street 2′

Wall-Street-2092210.jpgWhile certain executives at News Corp. may not agree, it is obvious that at the moment, the top business news channel on Wall Street is CNBC.

With that in mind director Oliver Stone prominently features the network’s anchors prominently in the upcoming sequel to his 1987 film “Wall Street.” This despite the fact that the film is produced by the 20th Century Fox film studio, a sister company to Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network.

Per MarketWatch.com‘s Jon Friedman:

And no actual journalists shine brighter in the new 20th Century Fox production than Maria Bartiromo and her CNBC posse. If you watch the network during the day, you’ll recognize the likes of Bartiromo, Jim Cramer, David Faber, Becky Quick, Sue Herera and Melissa Lee.

The network’s stars appear on camera so often that this film is practically a product placement for CNBC.

Indeed, Friedman notes that early on in the film, Bartiromo appears in a scene where she interviews Michael Douglas‘ character from the film, Gordon Gekko.

As CNBC Interviews Morgan Stanley Chairman, FBN’s Gasparino Breaks News on the Company

Today’s debut of the new CNBC show “Strategy Session” hosted by David Faber along with Gary Kaminsky included an interview with Morgan Stanley Chairman John Mack.

While Mack was on CNBC starting at noon, over on Fox Business — at 12:02 — former CNBCer Charlie Gasparino was breaking news of potential big layoffs at none other than Morgan Stanley — as many as 1,200 employees cut and 300 branches closed.

“It is worse than anything I can imagine,” Gasparino said of the cuts. “We are talking major cutbacks following the merger of its brokers department with Citigroup.”

Over on CNBC, when asked about growing concerns about the problems in the EU, Mack said, “This doesn’t feel like the crisis that I went through [in 2008], so I feel a lot better about it.”

> Previously: At a Bloomberg panel in November about coverage of the financial crisis, Mack was asked if the media’s reporting on his company was fair.

Behind CNBC’s Lunchtime Shuffle

Business Insider’s Joe Pompeo digs a bit into the backstory behind David Faber‘s new show, “Strategy Session,” and its creator, CNBC’s senior VP of strategic programing Susan Krakower. One source says, “The reason the show is controversial is because it marks a move by CNBC’s primetime czar extending her reach into daytime.”
