Page Six reports several former employees of “America’s Talking” — MSNBC’s predecessor launched by Roger Ailes featuring Chris Matthews, Steve Doocy and others — recently gathered to mark the 20th anniversary of the channel’s launch:
Last Saturday night, several dozen of the 277 former employees gathered for a 20th anniversary at Social Bar in Midtown Manhattan. The all-talk channel blazed trails in online interactivity and viewing audience participation before NBC dumped it to give Microsoft a content platform.
“It was like television school for me,” said [Bill] McCuddy, now a voice-over talent and movie critic on NY1. Others in the room went on to producing and directing careers on CNN, Al Jazeera and HGTV.
“None of us would be here without Roger Ailes,” McCuddy said.“Now we have to wrap this party up because MSNBC is taking it over in 10 minutes.”
Remembering how Peter was still in college when he participated in MSNBC’S Chris Matthews’ Hardball College Tour, Steve states “…my wife Kathy and I encouraged Peter to pursue either an MBA or a law degree but…(Peter) was selected to ask John McCain a town hall question. Peter phrased it in a hilarious way that got McCain and the 5000 in attendance laughing, and made political headlines.”
Soon after, Peter became a junior reporter and he believes that “I’m able to concentrate on what I’m doing with the benefit of having him as my behind-the-scenes career counselor. He’s already made all the rookie mistakes you can make on TV and he makes sure I don’t follow in those footsteps.”
Fox and Friends co-host Steve Doocy got emotional this morning during an interview with the parents of Lt. Darryn Andrews.
Andrews was killed in Afghanistan in 2009 on a mission his fellow soldiers claimed was to rescue then-captured U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Over the weekend, President Obama released five Taliban prisoners for Bergdahl.
“I’ve read a lot about your son, and he was a good man,” Doocy said at the conclusion of the interview. “Hard for me to talk about it,” he added while fighting tears.
Doocy’s son, Peter, is a Washington-based correspondent for Fox News.

“I’m speechless,” Myers tells TVNewser about his first bracket challenge title. “This is the proudest moment in my weather career. 43 correct and 20 wrong. That’s some kind of forecasting record. Going to Zabar’s for a bagel!”
