Gigi Stone Joining CBS As ‘MoneyWatch’ Correspondent

Gigi_Stone_Personal_HeadshotFormer Bloomberg TV anchor Gigi Stone is joining CBS in a freelance role as correspondent for “MoneyWatch,” a personal finance segment produced for CBS stations. She will also occasionally contribute to other CBS News programming.

The job requires some early mornings, as some of the first hits can be on local news shows that air before “CBS This Morning.”

“It will be some early mornings for sure, so I will be up bright and early, rising and shining,” Stone tells TVNewser. “I’m used to the news business, and adapting to schedules that may not be nine to five.”

Stone says that it is particularly “exciting for me to be a part of this premium CBS brand,” noting some of the CBS News programming. As for what she hopes to accomplish in her new role:

“I am excited for the opportunity to do live reports from the Stock Exchange for all the CBS affiliates around the country as well as for the network; it seems like a good opportunity to really speak to people about the economy,” Stone says.

Stone’s predecessor Ashley Morrison, left the role early this month. Stone filled in on WPIX New York early this year, at the time she was still with Bloomberg TV.

Stone is also the host and co-producer of “Hiring America,” a nationally syndicated television show created to help military veterans find jobs. She hosted the MediabistroTV CUBES episode of Bloomberg TV, which you can watch below.

The Women of Bloomberg?

Page Six “hears” that Bloomberg is trying to compete with Fox News in the female anchor department with recent hires. Former-CNBCer Margaret Brennan and former-ABCer Gigi Stone joined the business news network in 2009. In March, both Melissa Long (formerly of and Cali Carlin (CBS News) came on board. Long is based out of Sydney. Would a line-up of brunettes be considered counterprogramming?

The Hate Hits Close to Home for ABC News Correspondent

Sciutto_9.9.jpgThe rooftop terrace at New York’s Empire Hotel was a fitting location for the launch party of ABC News correspondent Jim Sciutto‘s new book, “Against US.” Through stunning interviews and a riveting narrative, Sciutto reports on the growing pan-Arab hatred toward Western imperialism. Scuitto, who’s been reporting on the subject for the last six years, tells TVNewser, “It’s hard not to know your nationality when you’re in that part of the world. There’s a personal aspect in this. As an American, I like my country. I get worried when it is so hated and so resented,” he says.

And the London-based correspondent should know. In the first chapter, Sciutto reveals middle class, British-born Muslim terrorists were living just down the street. A police round-up made that clear one morning.

For Sciutto, the New York junket is a rare trip home. His wife, ABC News correspondent Gloria Riviera is back in London awaiting the birth of their first child. “We have this production this month, and then next month we have the bigger production,” Sciutto says. His dad was at the party last night. His mother, who’d always told Jim he should write a book, passed away before Sciutto finished “Against US.” She’d gotten a look at an early draft before she died.

ABC News president David Westin, and ABC News anchor Bob Woodruff delivered some brief remarks. Also in attendance, ABC News EVP Dave Davis, and ABC correspondents Brian Ross and Gigi Stone. From CNN, correspondent Alina Cho and FNC’s Rick Leventhal were also on hand.

After the jump, Sciutto talks about how the book came to be, and how foreign news fits in with this very busy political season back home.
