NPR Names and Ashton vs. CNN on the Menu

mmm_2-3.gifToday on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu we’re talking Sam Zell, Wall St. Journal’s curious new iPhone app and Ashton Kutcher vs. CNN via Twitter.

Also, we talk about the “gotcha TV” at The O’Reilly Factor.

But more importantly — what’s your “NPR Name“? We explain what that means, and reveal our names, live on the podcast. (I’m Stevean Carmona and Glynnis is “Glynnits Hughenden”.) Tell us yours in the comments…

You can listen to all the past podcasts at BlogTalkRadio.com/mediabistro and call in at 646-929-0321. Coming up tomorrow: PRNewser’s Jason Chupick.

The Ticker (p.m. edition): Favre, Tan, Zell…

> Retired (for now) Green Bay Packer Brett Favre goes On The Record with (Wisconsinite and ginormous Packer fan) Greta Van Susteren tonight. Favre clears up the reasons he asked to be released from his contract with the team. 10pmET (which is 9pm in Green Bay).

> CNBC and CNBC Asia anchor Christine Tan is profiled by the Straits Times of Singapore. “I do not think I got here because of looks. Good looks may make people notice you and may open doors but for the doors to be fully open, you really have to work hard,” she says.

> We usually leave the news about newspapers to the Fishbowls, but today’s departure of two honchos at Sam Zell publications (editor Ann Marie Lipinski at the Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times publisher David Hiller) is big news across the media world. FishbowlLA also reports on the 150 layoffs at the Times.
