Bret Baier: “I Couldn’t Be Happier Where We Are”

Baier.jpgFNC Special Report anchor Bret Baier, a former Atlantan, is profiled by Rodney Ho at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Excerpts from the interview:

• On becoming anchor of Special Report: “It’s a job of a lifetime for a guy like me who loves politics and being in the middle of things. I’d be happy to retire at this job.”

• Ho asks about the program’s ratings, “up nearly 40 percent from the fist six months of 2008, when Brit Hume was at the helm.”

Baier says that he “did interviews before [President Barack] Obama came into office, and they believed the new presidency would be the death knell for Fox News. But that hasn’t happened at all. I couldn’t be happier where we are.”

• On his role in the FNC evening lineup: “I respect the commentary folks. They’re doing gangbusters. My job is different.”

HLN’s Howard Diagnosed With Cancer

howard_2-18.jpgThe Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Rodney Ho reports syndicated radio and HLN weekend daytime host Clark Howard has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Howard said the cancer was detected early. “There was no shock, no fear,” he said. “This isn’t what’s going to kill me. It’s probably going to be something like driving down 285 will kill me.”

An HLN spokesperson tells TVNewser: “Our first concern is for Clark’s welfare, and we support him and his family as they deal with this personal matter. We do not expect there to be any change to his HLN television schedule at this time.”

Howard’s HLN show launched on January 3.
