Brian Williams, Regis Philbin Receive NYSBA Honors

The New York State Broadcasters association honored “NBC Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams with the 2011 “Broadcaster of the Year” award, and inducted Regis Philbin into its Hall of Fame this week.

“Growing up as an Irish-Catholic kid on the the Jersey shore my mother would always point out correspondents and anchors on television, knowing that I was always writing for the student paper, always so interested in what Walter (Cronkite) was reporting on,” Williams recounted at the event. “She’d always tell me, bless her heart, that I could do just as well as those people — or even better.”

Below, Philbin and Williams are joined by Fox 5 anchor Ernie Anastos at the reception at the Sagamore Hotel in Lake George, New York.

Breasts & Bombs (the F kind) Drop on TV

CNBC_9.17.pngAt the end of CNBC’s Power Lunch today, Sue Herera was reading a story about Chinese chickens vs. American chickens (don’t ask, apparently that’s an important business story). Anyway, Herera says, “American chicken feet tend to be larger and plumper than other chicken feet around the world, because Americans like more white meat chicken, so the feet are bred to be bigger and it costs more to buy them.”

So Michelle Caruso Cabrera chimes in: “Because American chickens have bigger breasts, so they must have bigger feet to hold them up.” Bill Griffith jumps in, “Well it’s time to go. Look at the clock.”

We don’t have that video. But we do have the clip of a slip from New York’s FOX 5 anchor Ernie Anastos also, oddly, involving chickens. He apparently meant to say, “Keep plucking that chicken.” But, he didn’t.

See it after the jump, and pay close attention to the look on the face of his co-anchor, former Fox News anchor, Dari Alexander

Time Warner Center Hosts Annual NLGJA Benefit

More than 300 TVNewsers packed Time Warner Center’s 10th floor event space last night for the 14th annual NLGJA Headlines and Headliners benefit and silent auction. CNN’s Soledad O’Brien emceed the event which raised more than $130,000 for NLGJA’s annual programs and scholarships.

In attendance: Geraldo Rivera, Juliet Huddy, Mike Jerrick, Natalie Morales, Meredith Vieira and her former “The View” co-host Joy Behar; Jeanne Moos, Jane Velez Mitchell, Jenna Wolf, and Alison Stewart; NBC News president Steve Capus, FNC VP John Moody and many more (we had to duck out half way through the event so probably missed some late-comers.) Here are some of the faces in the crowd:

Several local newscasters, who headed back to their stations to anchor the 10 or 11 O’Clock shows, were in attendance, including Ernie Anastos and Dari Alexander of WNYW, Sade Baderinwa and Bill Ritter of WABC, and Chris Wragge of WCBS, doing double duty this week for the local station and the network.

At this hour, five noteworthy auction items remain on eBay.
