Cavuto on Bartiromo at FBN: ‘We’re Populating it with Italians’

Neil Cavuto went on Brian Kilmeade‘s Fox News Radio show today to talk about the addition of Maria Bartiromo to the FBN line-up. “We’re populating it with Italians,” Cavuto joked. “It’s a bad Sopranos cast.”

While Cavuto admitted FBN’s ratings may not be at the level of Fox News shows, the host-executive is happy with the makeup of his audience. “I always tell Bill O’Reilly, you’ve got the trailer parks as your viewers, but I have the viewers who own those trailer parks.”

Cavuto also gave great advice about getting ahead, and staying ahead, in the TV business: work hard.

MSNBC Promotes Two to Managing Editor, Hires EP for ‘Reid Report’

MSNBCLogo304x200As two new MSNBC hosts take to the air today, there are some changes behind the scenes too.

“Jansing & Co.” EP Rashida Jones—who joined MSNBC six months ago— and “News Nation with Tamron Hall” EP Ilyas Kirmani have both been promoted to the new positions of Managing Editor, reporting to MSNBC VP and executive editor Yvette Miley.

MSNBC tells us new EPs for the 10am (Jansing) and 11am (Hall) will be named in the coming weeks.

And TVNewser has learned MSNBC has hired Larry Epstein, the senior producer of Fox Business Networks’ “Cavuto,” as EP of “The Reid Report” with Joy Reid which debuts today at 2pmET. Epstein also previously worked as a producer for Neil Cavuto‘s Fox News show  “Your World.”

From ‘Closing Bell’ to ‘Opening Bell’: Maria Bartiromo’s FBN Show to Launch February 24

Maria Batriomo FBNFirst on TVNewser: Maria Bartiromo‘s new Fox Business show officially has a name and a place in the FBN lineup. Beginning February 24, the former CNBCer will host “Opening Bell with Maria Bartiromo” from 9-11amET.

Bartiromo officially joined FBN from CNBC, where she anchored “Closing Bell with Maria Bartiromo,” last month. She made her first FBN appearance yesterday and she will be on “The O’Reilly Factor” making her first Fox News appearance tonight.

The launch of Bartiromo’s show sets off a slew of changes to the FBN lineup. With Bartiromo going on the air at 9amET, “Imus in the Morning” will end 20 minutes earlier. “Varney & Co.,” which currently airs from 9:20 to 11amET, will slide to 11am to 1pmET. “Markets Now,” FBN’s four-hour block helmed by a rotating cast of FBN anchors, will be condensed to one hour and will air from 1pmET-2pmET.

Fox Business has also announced the hire of Deirdre Bolton, who joins the network after 15 years at Bloomberg TV. When Bolton officially joins FBN later this year, she will take over the 1pmET hour with an as-yet-unnamed show.

The channel has also announced a few other programming changes: “Money with Melissa Francis” will move from 5pmET to 2pmET. In a reversal of the primetime shakeup FBN implemented in 2012, “The Willis Report with Gerri Willis” will move back to 5pmET and “Cavuto” will move back to 6pmET, with a re-air at 8pmET.

“Our new schedule will enhance our ability to deliver timely key business news and we are thrilled to debut fresh programming with an all-star team,” Fox Business EVP Kevin Magee said in a statement.

Cavuto on MS: ‘Sometimes Life Doesn’t Give You Much of a Choice’

neil cavuto_304x200In a Q+A with Inside Jersey, Fox News and Fox Business anchor Neil Cavuto weighs in on the progression of TV news from what he watched as a kid to today’s “ubiquitous” 24-hour news cycle, which he calls “a whole new ballgame.” Cavuto, a cancer survivor who has MS, also talks about his health:

The least I can do is not bitch and moan about it. There are people dealing with far more. So that, in a way, has made me a better person and better at dealing with people, because I care a little bit more. I’m not always interested in the bottom line. I’m interested in people. Sometimes life doesn’t give you much of a choice. You can’t just stop what you’re doing. I take some comfort in doctors looking at MRIs and wondering how I’m doing what I’m doing. Maybe I’m lucky, or maybe my time will come. But no matter what you do in life, you have to respect the fragility of life. Enjoy the good things in life, but don’t think they’re a guarantee.
