David Rhodes, Erin Burnett on Fortune’s ’40 Under 40′ List

37-year-old CBS News President David Rhodes and 35-year-old CNN anchor Erin Burnett have made Fortune’s annual “40 Under 40″ list. Rhodes comes in at #17. And here’s a tip: if you want to get on his good-side, have a sense of humor.

Pet peeve: Humorlessness. “All day long you meet people who take themselves too seriously. Humor is how reasonable people cope.”

Insiders tell us Rhodes got congratulatory emails from CBS Corp. chairman Leslie Moonves and CBS News chairman Jeff Fager this morning.

Burnett, the former CNBC anchor, comes in at #33 (CNN and Fortune are both owned by TimeWarner):

She still has her eye on the markets but plans to also cover global stories. “I think America has a higher tolerance for international news than the industry has assumed,” she says.

The list is topped by the obvious names: 28-year-old Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg at #1 and Google co-founder Larry Page, 38, comes in at #2. Google’s other co-founder, 38-year-old Sergey Brin comes in at #11.

Obama Gets Almost All of 60 Minutes

Obamas_11.16.bmpIn his first interview since being elected president, Barack Obama is getting all three segments of tonight’s 60 Minutes. It’s rare that a single topic gets more than one segment on the show — we’re reminded that Lesley Stahl‘s 2005 interview with Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page was spread across two segments.

So, is this a first?

Steve Kroft, who conducted the interview with the Obamas, reminded viewers of the one thing that would not be left out: “I’m Steve Kroft. Our interview with the Obamas plus Andy Rooney, tonight on ’60 minutes.’”
