‘Meet the Press’ Meets America

Meet the Press“Meet the Press” is unveiling a new series with NBC News correspondent Kevin Tibbles to take politics “outside of the Beltway and into the Heartland.”

“Meeting America,” which kicked off last week with a report from Iowa, will look at how political decisions made in D.C. affects the day-to-day lives of Americans. This week’s report will be from Steele City, Nebraska, the starting point of Phase II of the Keystone XL pipeline project.

“Our goal is to translate what’s going on in Washington, DC, and show the real impact on constituents across the country,” executive producer Rob Yarin said in a statement. “Politics isn’t just about politicians — it’s about real people and real life outside the halls of the West Wing or Capitol Hill, and ‘Meeting America’ allows us to give a national platform to voices we don’t normally hear from on these issues.”

A Party Tonight, Before the Today Celebration

The party’s still going at the Edison Ballroom in Times Square as the “Today” show celebrates its 60th anniversary. The morning milestone began with a welcome from “Today” frontman Matt Lauer before singer Pit Bull took the stage.

Fourth hour hosts Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford were early arrivals, with Kotb (below) front and center during Pit Bull’s set. We spotted NBC News president Steve Capus and “Today” EP Jim Bell working the room, as longtime EP and, later NBCU president Jeff Zucker was deep in conversation with former “Today” anchor Meredith Vieira.

“Today” senior broadcast producer Don Nash, who’s been with the show more than a third of its life — 23 years — tells TVNewser tomorrow’s anniversary program is not to be missed. All former living on air talent — save for Joe Garagiola and Gene Shalit who aren’t able to make it — will be a part of the show. And we spotted many of them at the party tonight, including Tom Brokaw, Katie Couric, (above) Barbara Walters, John Palmer and Hugh Downs.

NBC spared no expense flying in correspondents from other NBC bureaus including Andrea Mitchell, Kerry Sanders, Kevin Tibbles, Janet Shamlian and Luke Russert.

Brian Williams stopped in after “Nightly News.” And we chatted with “Today” anchors Savannah Guthrie, Jenna Wolfe and Amy Robach, here with husband Andrew Shue, and said hello to Willard Scott on our way out. Other “Today” regulars celebrating  included Jill Rappaport, Martha Stewart, the Scotto family and Bobby Flay. We chatted with Andy Cohen (mostly about NeNe Leakes) who later tonight will be interviewing Rosie O’Donnell on his Bravo show, “Watch What Happens Live.”

Rounding out the crowd: Willie Geist, Jeff Rossen, Martin Bashir, Carl Quintanilla, Andrew Ross Sorkin, Tyler Mathisen, MSNBC president Phil Griffin and CNBC president Mark Hoffman and many more I may have missed. Because, as I said, the party is still going. Then, tomorrow at 7am, “Today” takes the party nationwide.

NBC’s Kevin Tibbles to Report from Joplin Tonight

All three of the broadcast networks will have filed reports from Joplin, Missouri today. In addition to CBS’ Chris Wragge and ABC’s David Muir, NBC News correspondent Kevin Tibbles will also be reporting from the city for “Nightly News” this evening. Tibbles first reported from Joplin the day the tornado struck nearly three months ago.

Anchors Away to Joplin

With the devastation from Joplin, MO becoming the big story Sunday night, the network news organizations are sending some of their top anchors to the city.

“NBC Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams–whose first TV job was at KOAM in Joplin–will return to the city to anchor his evening newscast tonight. Ron Mott and Al Roker traveled to the city last night, and reported from there this morning on “Today.” Kevin Tibbles is also en route.

Joplin also has another personal co0nnection to NBC: it is the hometown of NBC senior investigative correspondent Lisa Myers.

On CBS, Harry Smith will anchor the “CBS Evening News” from there this evening, while Chris Wragge will co-anchor “The Early Show” from the city tomorrow morning.

ABC “World News” anchor Diane Sawyer will anchor from Joplin tonight, and will be joined by David Muir. “Good Morning America”‘s Josh Elliott and Sam Champion reported for the program this morning, and will also contribute to “World News.”

Cable networks are after the jump.

GM Everywhere: Networks Cover Obama Speech

The cablers and networks covered President Barack Obama‘s remarks about the GM bankruptcy this afternoon, with George Stephanopoulos anchoring on ABC, Russ Mitchell on CBS and Ann Curry on NBC.

Tonight on ABC World News, Charlie Gibson anchors from a Chevrolet dealership in New Jersey, in addition to several reports from ABC’s correspondents. CBS’ Dean Reynolds reports from Detroit and Anthony Mason from New York. NBC’s Phil LeBeau (who got the second question at the GM news conference after a reporter from Mexico) and Kevin Tibbles will report for Nightly News.

And perhaps a recognition that it is now 60% owned by the U.S. government, GM was doing the diplomatic thing by airing C-SPAN’s coverage of the Obama remarks at its New York headquarters, rather than from, say, CBS which produces its morning show in the GM building. C-SPAN, a public service channel, is owned by cable and satellite operators.

IMG_0956.JPGThey haven’t gotten much sleep. Nor a whole lot of time off. But for TVNewsers covering tonight’s Obama event in Chicago, the past many months on the campaign trail have all been worth it.

“What a great ride this has been,” CNN’s Candy Crowley tells TVNewser. “You really do have this sort of post-partum depression after it’s done!”

Especially after a Presidential race that featured so many twists and turns. “To me,” Crowley explains, “I love it when what we think is gonna happen doesn’t happen.”

“This was the story to be on this year, bar none,” says NBC’s Lee Cowan. “I had a front row seat on the campaign bus to history. I’ll never forget it, no matter how it turns out.”

LClaman.jpgThe Presidential campaign is “all we hear about” from viewers, says FBN’s Liz Claman. “It’s what they want to hear about…this is a fascinating time for our nation.”

After the jump, we talk with ABC’s Jake Tapper about dreaming of sleep, plus Robin Roberts, Judy Woodruff, Kevin Tibbles and more…
