TV Talkers Make Talkers List of Heavy Hundred

Ed Schultz spent a little time on his MSNBC show last night talking about Talkers, the radio industry magazine and its 2012 Heavy Hundred list. Rush Limbaugh is #1 on the list, followed by FNC’s Sean Hannity and Michael Savage at #3. “Well, we all know his history and what happened here on MSNBC,” said Schultz of Savage.

“And I’m right ahead of my good friend, Laura Ingraham,” said Schultz sarcastically. Unless this is how you refer to your “good friend.”

Schultz joins Joe Madison and Thom Hartmann as the “three lefties in the top ten!”

Former Fox News host Glenn Beck is #9 on the list.

Hurricane Irene Could Change Coverage Plans for Dedication of MLK Jr. Memorial

The cable networks are planning special coverage Sunday morning for the dedication of the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial in Washington, D.C. But Hurricane Irene could scrap some of the outdoor anchor positions the nets had been planning. And while the event will go on rain or shine, the ceremony may be pushed back. Dr. King’s Memorial is on a four-acre plot on the northwest corner of the Tidal Basin.

The dedication comes on the 48th anniversary of King’s “I Have a Dream” speech from the nearby Lincoln Memorial. Here’s what the nets are planning, weather permitting:

  • CNN’s Candy Crowley, T.J. Holmes and Soledad O’Brien will anchor live coverage from 11amET-1pmET with reports beginning as early as 6amET and a special edition of “State of the Union” at 9amET. Other specials include a Holmes-hosted half hour at 7:30pm Saturday and the O’Brien documentary “MLK: Words that Changed a Nation” Sunday at 8pmET/PT.
