Michaela Pereira Talks Being Adopted, Searching For Birth Parents

“New Day” anchor Michaela Pereira, who was adopted when she was three months old, writes about the search for her birth parents in this month’s Essence magazine. “I was especially curious about my father,” Pereira writes. “So much of who I am on the outside—my skin color, eye color and hair—is because of him. My identity is inextricably tied to a man I do not know.”

On the show this week, Pereira talked about the search, which she began in 1996. Although her birth mother has died and she has yet to find her birth father, in the course of her search she did find her birth sister, who she joked “she could be out of the Bolduan clan.” Watch:

CNN’s New Daytime Show Gets a Name: ‘@THISHOUR’

Wolf-ATH

CNN’s new 11amET show officially has a name: “@THISHOUR.” The 11amET show, anchored by John Berman and Michaela Pereira, debuts Monday as part of CNN’s revamped daytime lineup.

“@THISHOUR” replaces “Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield,” which slides to the 12pmET hour. CNN’s 1pmET hour, anchored by Wolf Blitzer, also gets a makeover and a new name as part of the changes — beginning Monday, the show will be called “Wolf” and will no longer be using the “CNN Newsroom” branding.

Ironically enough, the @thishour Twitter handle is taken, so the CNN show will have to find a new social media identity.

CNN Changes: ‘Around the World’ Canceled; John Berman, Michaela Pereira Add 11am

MalveauxWorldCNN is changing up its daytime schedule, replacing the NoonET “Around the World” co-anchored by Suzanne Malveaux and Michael Holmes with “Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield.” Banfield’s move from 11am to Noon makes room for a new show co-anchored by John Berman and Michaela Pereira at 11amET. Berman and Pereira will continue their roles on “Early Start” and “New Day.”

The international news-focused Noon hour took shape in the summer of 2012 as “International Newsroom.” At the time, Malveaux had anchored two hours of CNN’s early afternoon hours from Atlanta. She will return to Washington as CNN’s national correspondent. Her return to D.C. allows her to better care for her mother, who suffers from ALS.

Holmes will return full-time to CNN International and continue to anchor “International Desk,” which airs weekdays at 10amET on CNNI.

Carol Costello continues anchoring from 9-11am, Berman and Pereira pick up at 11am, Banfield is at Noon, Wolf Blitzer continues to anchor an hour from Washington at 1pm and Brooke Baldwin anchors her two hours from Atlanta, beginning at 2pmET.

2013 TVNewser Challege: The Results

At the beginning of the year, we asked you to predict what would happen in the television news industry in 2013, and thousands of you responded with your thoughts on the year ahead. We’ll have a new set of questions in the 2014 TVNewser Challenge tomorrow, but in the meantime, here’s how you did.

Will the three evening newscasts increase or decrease in viewership in 2013?

82% of you thought the evening newscasts would decrease in viewership, compared to just 18% of you who thought viewership would go up. As it turns out, you were all right: year-to-date, the three-network annual total is up +2% in total viewers and down -4% in the A25-54 demographic compared to 2012. “NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams” remained on top this year. “ABC World News with Diane Sawyer” was second and “CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley” was third.

By this time next year, which CNN daypart will see the biggest change under Jeff Zucker?

The majority of you (57%) believed CNN’s primetime programming would see the biggest changes under Jeff Zucker‘s leadership. There have been a few changes in primetime, but the major programming overhaul was in the mornings, which 30% of voters predicted. “New Day” debuted in June.

Which broadcast morning show is likely to see an anchor change in 2013?

Only 12% of responders saw an anchor change in the cards for “Good Morning America,” which had weather anchor Sam Champion depart for The Weather Channel this month. 61% of you thought the anchor change would be at “Today” and 27% thought it would be at “CBS This Morning.”

Will Megyn Kelly still be with Fox News at this time next year?

44% of you correctly predicted Megyn Kelly‘s move to primetime, which took place after she returned from maternity leave in October. Read more

Samsung Gadget Segments Reveal Hoda Kotb, Michaela Pereira’s Phone Numbers

Note to TV anchors and producers: if you are doing a segment on a gadget that hooks into your phone number or email, be prepared for those things to appear on-air.

NBC’s Hoda Kotb and CNN’s Michaela Pereira learned that the hard way this morning, as both women had their personal phone numbers broadcast for all to see during segments about Samsung’s new “smartwatch.”

Shortly after the start of the 10 AM hour, Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford played around with the device, accidentally flashing Kotb’s number in the process.

“Is that my number?,” Kotb asked. “See, it’s happening, people are calling my number! Hello? Who is this? Is this me?”

“Oh, you have a lot of fans, and a couple of prisoners,” Gifford joked.

“Oh god, it’s happening!” Kotb responded. “I have 20 voice mails, 22, 23… What just happened?”

Pereira played it a bit cooler on CNN after Zain Asher accidentally flashed her number while calling her from the Samsung gadget.

Dueling Cuomos On The Morning Shows

Yes, the Duchess of Cambridge may have been the big boldface name on the morning shows this morning, but there was another high-profile family all over TV: New York’s royal family, the Cuomos.

Chris Cuomo sat at his usual perch in the Time Warner Center, alongside Kate Bolduan and Michaela Pereira, where he led “New Day” on CNN talking about the Royal Baby, among other topics.

Meanwhile, on the network morning program that clearly influenced “New Day” quite a bit–”CBS This Morning”–Chris’ older brother Andrew Cuomo, who also happens to be Governor of the State of New York, talked to Jan Crawford.

Crawford interviewed Cuomo about 2016 ambitions and New York City politics… but also went head to head with the Governor in a whitewater raft race in the Adirondacks.
