Cable, Broadcast, Business Networks Plan For Obama’s Joint Address to Congress

The broadcast networks will all lead in to tonight’s 7 p.m. presidential address with their normal nightly newscasts. All three networks will offer post-game analysis — anchored by George Stephanopoulos for ABC, Brian Williams for NBC and Scott Pelley for CBS. NBC — which is carrying the 8:30 p.m. NFL kickoff game that is the reason behind President Obama’s earlier-than-usual address — will likely minimize post-speech analysis to join the in-progress NFL pregame show, which was displaced to cable due to the presidential speech.

Fox News Channel and CNN will take the speech live and incorporate coverage into their normal 7 p.m. shows — “The Fox Report with Shepard Smith” on Fox News Channel, a live “Hardball with Chris Matthews” on MSNBC. CNN will also take the speech live, with Wolf Blitzer and John King will jointly anchoring  coverage that will also be simulcast on CNN International. C-SPAN will also broadcast the speech in its entirety.

All three business networks will also take the presidential address. CNBC’s coverage will be anchored by Maria Bartiromo and John Harwood, while Lou Dobbs will anchor for Fox Business. Bloomberg TV’s coverage will be anchored by Margaret Brennan from Washington, DC, and will lead directly in to the network’s 9/11 documentary, “Tragedy and Triumph: Wall Street After 9/11.”

CNBC Prepares to Profile Its Old Boss

On Monday, CNBC will televise a primetime documentary profiling former General Electric CEO Jack Welch. Welch has become a cable news regular since retiring from GE, but he was also of course CEO of the company that owned CNBC. NBCUniversal has since been sold to cable company Comcast.

Maria Bartiromo will host the special, ‘CNBC Titans: Jack Welch.”

The Cable Show, the trade show for the National Cable Television Association, is underway this week in Chicago. And last night at the gala event of the week, the Cable Hall of Fame, CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo became the first female journalist inducted into the Hall. (CNN’s Bernard Shaw and trade publisher Paul Maxwell are also members.)

We talked with the Money Honey this morning between panels she’s moderating at the trade show. She’ll also be anchoring “Closing Bell” from Wrigley Field this afternoon, because tonight the Brooklyn native and Yankees fan is throwing out the first pitch as the Cubs take on the Milwaukee Brewers. “I’ve been going to Central Park to practice,” Bartiromo tells TVNewser. “It’s 60 feet! I just want to get it over the plate.”

TVNewser: Congratulations. I know it’s a busy day for you. What an honor. The Hall of Fame is mostly made up of cable innovators and executives. How did a journalist get on that list?

Maria Bartiromo: Thanks Chris. They tell me I’m the first female journalist on the list and I’m in awe of that. When they asked me to join this illustrious group that includes John Malone, Ted Turner, and Jeff Bewkes, I started to think about my career. Where has the time gone? I started my career as an intern at CNN covering live events, producing under Lou Dobbs. That was 20 years ago and now it’s been 19 years at CNBC covering the financial ups and downs. I feel incredibly proud — proud to be part of this industry.

TVNewser: Who are some of the people behind your success?

CNBC Stars Play Prominent Role in 20th Century Fox’s ‘Wall Street 2′

Wall-Street-2092210.jpgWhile certain executives at News Corp. may not agree, it is obvious that at the moment, the top business news channel on Wall Street is CNBC.

With that in mind director Oliver Stone prominently features the network’s anchors prominently in the upcoming sequel to his 1987 film “Wall Street.” This despite the fact that the film is produced by the 20th Century Fox film studio, a sister company to Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network.

Per MarketWatch.com‘s Jon Friedman:

And no actual journalists shine brighter in the new 20th Century Fox production than Maria Bartiromo and her CNBC posse. If you watch the network during the day, you’ll recognize the likes of Bartiromo, Jim Cramer, David Faber, Becky Quick, Sue Herera and Melissa Lee.

The network’s stars appear on camera so often that this film is practically a product placement for CNBC.

Indeed, Friedman notes that early on in the film, Bartiromo appears in a scene where she interviews Michael Douglas‘ character from the film, Gordon Gekko.
