With $800,000 and Two ’60 Minutes’ Veterans, ‘Frontline’ Makes Major Investment in Digital

443v3374

CBS’ “60 Minutes” and PBS’ “Frontline” have a lot in common. Both have deep and distinguished roots in traditional media–your Mom, for instance, will know both brands, while Vice may still be a bit of a mystery–and both have been doing capital-J journalism on television in a style that has resisted flash and fluff for decades.

So it might seem natural that “Frontline” has hired two “60 Minutes” veterans, James Jacoby, who spent four years as a producer at “60 Minutes”, Anya Bourg, who produced at “60 Minutes” for eight years. But Bourg and Jacoby won’t be working on traditional TV stories–they’re part of a major push to expand the venerable “Frontline” brand beyond old-school TV. “They will strengthen Frontline’s presence and identity as a digital newsroom,” said Raney Aronson-Rath, deputy executive producer for “Frontline”–and it’s probably wise to think of “Frontline” the way its own journalists do–as a news organization, and not just a show.

News Pro Names ’12 To Watch in TV News’

TV Week’s News Pro magazine has assembled a list of “12 to Watch in TV News.” Unsurprisingly, incoming CNN president Jeff Zucker, who says “just because you’re not partisan doesn’t mean you can’t be exciting,” tops the list.

Notably, there are only two other cable personalities on the list: MSNBC’s weekend host Chris Hayes and Fox News’ Supreme Court reporter Shannon Bream, who has taken on an expanded role in the network’s political coverage this year.

Each of the network morning shows are represented — Robin Roberts for ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Savannah Guthrie for NBC’s “Today” and Norah O’Donnell for “CBS This Morning.” Chris Licht, the executive producer of “This Morning,” is also on the list.

Rounding out the 12 people are PBS’ “Frontline” executive producer Raney Aronson-Rath, NBCUniversal news group chairman Pat Fili-Krushnel, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos, TheBlazeTV host Glenn Beck and ABC News weekend anchor David Muir.
