CNBC Plots a Post-Wall Street Journal ‘Wall Street Journal Report’

Inside Cable News has slides from a “News VIPs” survey, looking at the CNBC (and NBC) program “The Wall Street Journal Report with Maria Bartiromo.”

News VIPs conducts surveys primarily related to NBCUniversal properties. NBCU is known to be their client.

As ICN notes, much of the survey was fairly typical, asking about the types of segments and guests viewers may be interested in, but there was also something else: The Wall Street Journal name. If you aren’t caught up: News Corp. purchased Dow Jones, publisher of the Journal few years ago, and at the time said it hoped to feature WSJ branding on Fox Business Network. However, WSJ already had a 10-year deal with CNBC, a deal now set to expire.

It’s 2012…the year that the Wall Street Journal/CNBC deal is supposed to expire. Conventional wisdom has been that the WSJ’s owner News Corp. is going to put the WSJ brand and its staff on FBN. I hadn’t considered the possibility that this likely WSJ scrubbing by CNBC would extend to syndication but this question surely must be gauging viewer opinion on what would/might happen if CNBC is forced to drop the WSJ name from this show.

Gary Schreier Jumps from FBN to CNBC

CNBC will announce tomorrow morning that Gary Schreier is returning to CNBC after spending the last 16 years with Fox News and Fox Business. TVNewser hears Schreier will EP Maria Bartiromo’s 3pmET show “Closing Bell.” Schreier was Neil Cavuto’s executive producer at both Fox News and, later Fox Business. Schreier has been with Cavuto since his days at CNBC and made the jump with him to FNC in 1996. He also helped launch FBN in 2007. An FBN staffer tells  TVNewser, “this is a major loss for the network.” Schreier’s last day at FBN is tomorrow.

> Update: Done deal. Nik Deogun‘s note to staff after the jump…

Who are Jennifer Granholm’s Favorite Journalists?

Jennifer Granholm is four months into her television career as host of “The War Room” on Current TV. The former Michigan governor talks to the Atlantic Wire about who else in the business she admires:

My favorite journalists are Christiane Amanpour, Maria Bartiromo, Rachel Maddow and the person everyone looks up to, Tim Russert, God rest his soul. I admire them all but I don’t really even pretend to be a journalist myself. I’m just an ex-governor hosting a show with an opinion. One of the challenges for me, that traditional journalists don’t really have, is interviewing people whom I agree with.  People know I’m a Democrat and I’m not going to hide what I believe. So playing devil’s advocate is a little difficult.

The Ticker (Business Network Edition): Brennan, Bartiromo, Francis…

  • Bloomberg TV’s Margaret Brennan talks with Silicon Republic about the impact of the current economic climate on journalism. “People used to be able to work on a story for a longer period of time,” she says. “There are very few news organizations that still invest in that.”
  • Maria Bartiromo recalls her early experiences on the NYSE floor at CNBC. “The New York Stock Exchange is an institution that’s 200 years old, with a Boy’s Club from the get-go, that’s very difficult to open up to women,” she tells Business Insider. “But I’ve never really faced people not taking me seriously.”
  • Melissa Francis says that making the move from CNBC to FBN was “an offer she couldn’t refuse.” She tells The Hill, “Roger Ailes was really persuasive and charismatic and dynamic and told me about the vision he has for Fox Business, and I was drawn in immediately.”

Is Davos ‘A Giant Fancy Cocktail Party … or Something More Meaningful?’

For Bloomberg TV anchor Erik Schatzker, putting his experience reporting from Davos into words is a challenge.

“There are too many superlatives to even begin to use one,” Schatzker tells TVNewser. “From a reporting standpoint, this is the single greatest reporting opportunity anyone in my business could have.”

Schatzker is one of several reporters, including Fox Business Network’s Liz Claman and CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo, in Switzerland this week for the World Economic Forum. In is his fourth year covering the event, Schatzker is anchoring “InsideTrack” live from Davos through Friday.

With the world’s economic leaders all convened in the Swiss village today through Sunday, Schatzker says the key to making his coverage stand out is the ability to grab guests from the Congress Center on the fly.

“I try not to be chained to the studio,” he said. “It’s important to see people, talk to them about what’s going on, and make my reporting as effective as possible.”

Friedman: ‘CNBC shouldn’t get too cocky’

Marketwatch.com’s Jon Friedman wonders if a spate of recent CNBC departures is creating “a brain drain” at the #1 business network. Friedman points out that while several have left, the network has held on to the likes of Maria Bartiromo, Jim Cramer and Joe Kernen, among others.

Notably, CNBC announced in late 2009 the hiring of Wall Street Journal news executive Nik Deogun to be its managing editor. Before Deogun arrived, CNBC on-air journalists seemed to preen first and try to break news second. Deogun has helped dial down the noise.

And while CNBC exists as brand first, self second, Friedman says too much outflow can cause a drought:

Broadcast journalism is littered with the stories of networks that believed their press clippings. They lost top-flight employees and eventually deteriorated. CNBC shouldn’t get too cocky.

Cheers and Jeers from GOP Candidates Over Debate Questions

At least one GOP candidate decided to blame the media — and academia — for many of the ills in the nation today. And he took it out on CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo, one of the moderators of the debate in Rochester, MI.

In a discussion about Occupy Wall St., Gingrich concluded with, “It’s sad that the news media doesn’t report accurately how the economy works.”

“What exactly… Mr. Speaker. I’m sorry, but what is the media reporting inaccurately about the economy?” asked Bartiromo. “What?” said Gingrich. Bartiromo repeated and Gingrich shot back: “I love humor disguised as a question, that’s terrific,” said Gingrich dismissively.

While Mr. Herman Cain stayed on his 9-9-9 message, 20 minutes into the debate Bartiromo went there with the candidate asking — to boos — about “character issues” and whether the American people should hire him. Co-moderator John Harwood followed up with Mitt Romney — and more boos — asking if he’d keep Cain on as CEO if Romney’s Bain Capital had bought Cain’s company. “Look, look. Herman Cain is the person to respond to these questions. He just did. The American people in this room and across the country can make their own assessment on that.”

Harwood moved on: “Governor Huntsman let me move back to the economy.” The crowd liked that line. (Clip after the jump).

After the debate, which went about 20 minutes longer than scheduled, Bartiromo Tweeted, “We tried to stick to economic issues. And I think there were many winners. I am not upset the crowd booed over cain q. We had to ask once.”

Candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann praised Bartiromo and Harwood in a post-debate interview: “I want to give credit to CNBC. I think you as moderators set a tone because you weren’t baiting one candidate to go after another. A lot of times, if you notice previous debates, that will happen.”
