Trish Regan leaves CNBC

CNBC’s Trish Regan has left the network, TVNewser has learned.

Regan, who co-hosted the 11am show, “The Call” with Melissa Francis and Larry Kudlow, was going to be pulled off the show and asked to stay on as a reporter. Instead, she chose to leave, insiders tell us.

“Her desk is cleared out,” a source says.

“Trish is under contract,” spokesperson Brian Steel tells TVNewser, which means a separation agreement is the next step before Regan can move on to her next TV gig.

In addition to anchoring, Regan reports for CNBC’s documentaries, including the “Marijuana, Inc.” franchise which ranks as the highest-rated documentary on the network. Regan’s book on the subject, “Joint Ventures” comes out next month.

Regan joined CNBC from CBS News in 2007.

CNBC’s Melissa Francis Returns; Swipes at Fill-in Amanda Drury?

Just good-natured fun or are things getting a little nasty at CNBC now that Melissa Francis returned from maternity leave?

This afternoon, Dealbreaker posted an email purportedly from Francis to editor Bess Levin regarding her temporary on-air fill-in Amanda Drury. It read:

Subject: I’m back!

Hope I can fill Mandy’s… shoes!

CNBC brought Drury over from CNBC Asia this spring to be a dayside anchor. Australia native Drury is based out of Sydney and Singapore. Her first assignment for CNBC U.S. was to sit in for Francis on “The Call.”

Larry Kudlow and Trish Regan welcomed Francis back today at the top of the show. She thanked her co-hosts and joked about her time away, saying “What the heck happened? I left at the beginning of May, the market went to hell in a hand basket. I hope everyone is not blaming Australia — I meant Greece. Not Australia. Anyway…”

Bloomberg is pre-empting its normal evening line-up for a special hosted by Margaret Brennan called “Behind the Dive.” We hear FBN will preempt its evening programming while Liz Claman, David Asman and Neil Cavuto continue to anchor. (Also, FNC has been showing a crazy time-lapse of the DOW’s drop and bounce-back.)

> NBC and ABC both broadcast brief special reports at the 4pmET market close. Claiborne and Golodryga again in for ABC, while Brian Williams was in on NBC.

Cable News as a Breeding Ground, and Stopover, For Once and Future Politicians

MSNBC calls itself The Place for Politics, but the NBC news channel as well as Fox News, CNN, and CNBC are under the microscope for paying politicians to be analysts, who are out of office now, but may not be for long.

Sarah Palin
, Mike Huckabee, Chris Matthews, Larry Kudlow, Harold Ford, and Lou Dobbs are just a few of the analysts and show hosts who’ve either held office or have contemplated a run for office.

Brian Stelter writes about it in today’s NYTimes:

The benefit for the part-time, but highly paid, pundits is clear: it increases their visibility. “It makes sense for candidates to seek out positions in niche cable, because it is a direct pipeline to voters,” said Jonathan Wald, a former senior vice president at CNBC and an adjunct professor at Columbia’s journalism school. “It’s an automatic affinity group.”

The benefit to the viewers is less clear. Some experts say the arrangements can cloud the objectivity of the news organizations.

“As long as they are still newsmakers, there is a strong potential for conflict,” said Andy Schotz, the chairman of the ethics committee for the Society of Professional Journalists. At the very least, it can amount to an advantage for the analysts, and create a perception of favoritism.
