CBS’ ‘Early Show’ Continues Political Push, Bloomberg TV’s Mosheh Oinounou Named Senior Producer

Bloomberg TV international desk editor Mosheh Oinounou is leaving the company to join CBS’ “The Early Show” as a senior producer, based in Washington DC.

Before joining Bloomberg, Oinounou was a producer for “Fox News Sunday,” and a political producer for Fox News Channel. Interestingly enough, Oinounou has been following David Rhodes as he has moved from organization to organization. Rhodes was an executive at FNC before joining Bloomberg as the head of Bloomberg TV. Earlier this year he became president of CBS News.The memo announcing his hire from “Early Show” EP Batt Humphreys is after the jump.

Oinounou’s hire is the latest in a string of moves designed to bolster the morning show’s political coverage in advance of the 2012 presidential election. The program has held town halls with political leaders, and earlier this month the National Journal profiled the program’s political ambitions.

The Women of Bloomberg?

Page Six “hears” that Bloomberg is trying to compete with Fox News in the female anchor department with recent hires. Former-CNBCer Margaret Brennan and former-ABCer Gigi Stone joined the business news network in 2009. In March, both Melissa Long (formerly of CNN.com) and Cali Carlin (CBS News) came on board. Long is based out of Sydney. Would a line-up of brunettes be considered counterprogramming?

THIS is CNN

CNN.com Live‘s Melissa Long anchors the Web-only show from a studio adjacent to the CNN.com newsroom.

No trip to Atlanta would be complete without a stop at CNN. So this TVNewser, taking a couple days away from the blog, dropped in at the CNN Center for the grand tour. We were taken through the newsroom/studios for CNN en Espanol and the newsroom and control room of CNN International, where World Sport was airing.

In the CNN domestic newsroom/studio Tony Harris was in the middle of anchoring his two hour show. We spotted Richard Quest, in Atlanta anchoring segments related to the financial crisis; anchor Kyra Phillips was talking with her producers about an upcoming segment on her show; Rick Sanchez was taking a break from Twittering and grabbing some lunch before his 3pmET hour; and we met CNN’s director of programming, Scott Matthews, now 10 months into his new job.

We stopped in to the live control room and finally, down several floors to the CNN.com newsroom, which is much larger than we expected it to be. And insiders tell us they are always looking for new ways to expand so it could soon grow even larger.

Many more pictures after the jump…
