The Evening Ticker: O’Donnell, Sproul, Petallides

  • In her first story for “60 Minutes” Norah O’Donnell profiles Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg for Sunday’s show. Sandberg’s on a mission to jump start the women’s revolution.

  • Robin Sproul is celebrating 20 years as ABC’s Washington Bureau Chief. Sproul joined ABC in 1981 and spent 11 years as bureau chief for ABC News Radio before taking on TV in 1993.

  • A mini celebration broke out on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange today — not because of another new high for the Dow –  but in honor of FBN’s Nicole Petallides who delivered her 25,000th market report for the network.

Inside the Book Party for Melissa Francis’ Diary of a Stage Mother’s Daughter

Melissa Francis jokes that she wants to be writer when she grows up. The Fox Business Network anchor is already on her second career. And with the publication of her memoir, “Diary of a Stage Mother’s Daughter,” she’s on her way to fulfilling that adulthood dream. Francis was feted last night at Astra, an event space overlooking Manhattan’s East River. The memoir is a brutally honest, sometimes painful, yet touching story of life as a child actor. After dozens of commercials, her first big break came on “Little House on the Prairie.”

In a Media Beat interview this summer Francis told us the book, includes “the typical family dramas, set against the backdrop of a very unusual childhood.”

But last night, no drama, just celebrating. Among the guests, FNC/FBN c0-founder and chairman Roger Ailes, FBN EVP Kevin Magee, anchors Neil Cavuto, Liz Claman, Lori Rothman, Cheryl Casone, Elizabeth MacDonald, Tracy Byrnes, Sandra Smith, Nicole Petallides, Tom Sullivan and Dennis Kneale.

From FNC, we spotted Bill Hemmer and chatted with Megyn Kelly about election night, and the moment that took her from the studio through the bowels of Fox News to the decision desk as they explained calling Ohio for Pres. Obama, giving him the election and giving Karl Rove agita. Following many long months of election coverage and, more recently, of Hurricane Sandy, which left her without power for a week, Kelly was looking forward to taking today off.

Cable News Channels, Anchors and Reporters Pay Tribute to CNBC’s Mark Haines

The news of CNBC anchor Mark Haines‘ death has been reverberating through the TV news business, and a number of other cable news channels took time out of their programming to pay tribute.

On Fox News Channel, former CNBC anchor Martha MacCallum said of Haines on “America’s Newsroom”: “He will be missed by so many in this business, he was one of the pioneers of the financial business news coverage, and a great market reporter, who worked at the stock exchange for many years and we will miss him.”

On CNBC competitor Fox Business Network, Stuart Varney reported the news at 10 AM, and had Nicole Petallides get the reaction from the New York Stock Exchange floor:

Live Mobile TV Gets Summer Test Run

MBNAB1.pngFOX Business Network anchor Nicole Petallides moderated the opening breakfast discussion this morning at the 2010 NAB Show. The topic: taking live programming on the go, on any number of new mobile devices, including the iPad, which was front at center during this morning’s chat.

The panel included former NBC exec now Chairman and CEO of Ion Media, Brandon Burgess and Dave Lougee, president of Gannett Broadcasting. Both are members of the OMVC, the open mobile video coalition.

The OMVC announced it will test a new Mobile DTV broadcast this summer in Washington, D.C. on a number of devices distributed by the group. Programming will come from Washington’s NBC, CBS and FOX stations as well as Fox News, MSNBC and CNBC.

Green on the Floor for Dow 10,000 2.0

Pettelides_10.14.jpg

We don’t think it’s coincidence that Trish Regan of CNBC and Nicole Petallides of Fox Business Network wore green on the day the Dow Jones industrial average hit the 10,000 mark, before dipping back below the level.

Regan kept a close on the numbers during the 11amET hour of “The Call” this morning, even holding up hats given out by the NYSE that are branded “Dow 10,000 2.0.” It would take another hour and 20 minutes to put the hats on when the DJIA hit 10,000 at 1:21pmET.

The last time the Dow crossed 10,000 during a trading session was Oct. 7, 2008.

dow10k_10-14.jpg> Update: The Dow ended the day closing above 10,000 — the first time that’s happened since Oct. 3, 2008. FBN’s Eric Bolling will host a DOW 10,000 special tonight at 8pmET. CNBC will air a special report at 7pmET.

“Long Island Girl” Petallides Describes Covering Economy in Tough Times

petallides_2-19.jpgSelf-described “Long Island Girl” Nicole Petallides is profiled by Long Island’s Boulevard Magazine this month. “While it’s a hard job, which has recently become even harder, Petallides couldn’t imagine doing anything else,” writes Ilena Ryan.

“I tread carefully and I try to be empathetic because as a business reporter, everyone tells me their stories of loss and it really is tough,” says Petallides. “I mean, I sometimes can’t sleep at night.”

She also describes the excitement of the job. “I love when they’re in my ear and they say ’30 seconds!’ and news is breaking and I can deliver it as it happens,” she says. “I hope to connect with the viewer. I enjoy what I do a lot.”
