TIME magazine is out with its annual TIME 100 list of the most influential people in the world.
Megyn Kelly, the anchor of Fox News Channel’s 9pm hour, is a Pioneer on the list while Charlie Rose, the co-host of “CBS This Morning,” is listed as an Icon. The list runs the gamut: from Pres. Obama to Edward Snowden; from Pope Francis to Miley Cyrus. Seth Myers, Jeff Bezos and both Koch brothers are also on it.
Brit Hume, who gets some of the credit for Kelly’s success, writes in TIME, “Ten years ago, my wife Kim, then Fox News’ Washington bureau chief, walked into my office carrying a videocassette. ‘You have got to see this,’ Kim said. It was the audition tape of a local TV reporter then named Megyn Kendall.
About Rose, Michael Bloomberg writes, “Over the years, political commentary on television — from both the left and the right — has grown more and more shrill. Both sides talk past each other in an endless repetition of poll-tested sound bites. And that’s why Charlie Rose matters more than ever.”
Who did TIME overlook? Let us know in the comments…
Jimmy Fallon Looks Beyond ‘Tonight Show’ to ‘Nightly News,’ ‘Today,’ and Being the ‘New Carson Daly’
Madonna and the Mayor were just two of the drop-ins on tonight’s “Saturday Night Live” hosted by SNL alum Jimmy Fallon. Paul McCartney, Barry Gibb and Chris Rock stopped by too. During “Weekend Update” there was a passing of the baton. When Fallon, a former “Weekend Update” anchor takes the reins at the “Tonight Show” next year, current “Update” anchor Seth Myers takes over his job at “Late Night.”
“I hosted ‘Late Night’ for five years and now the ‘Tonight Show,’ Fallon said during “Update.” “Five years after that I’ll host the ‘Nightly News,’ then, five years after that the ‘Today’ show. And five years after that I’m the new Carson Daly.”
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who is leaving his job on New Year’s Eve talked about his future plans: “I’ll be fulfilling a lifelong dream of consuming a small soda on a smoke-free beach.” Bloomberg also joked that he’s applied to teach Spanish.
Earlier on “Update,” Myers joked about an upcoming New Year’s Eve special: “NBC announced this week that Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb will host a primetime special on the network called ‘A Toast to 2013,’ in which they recount their favorite stories from the past year. But, shh, it’s actually an intervention.”
While Diller is hosting a bash on a private roof garden overlooking Rockefeller Center to welcome new AOL boss Tim Armstrong and News Corp.’s chief digital officer Jonathan Miller to New York’s digital community, von Furstenberg will be at her downtown headquarters celebrating “Womenomics,” a new book by “Good Morning America” host Claire Shipman and the BBC’s Katty Kay. While Diller’s expecting Jeff Zucker, Jimmy Fallon, Seth Myers and Mike Ovitz, von Furstenberg is drawing Katie Couric, Charlie Gibson and Charlie Rose.
