TVNewsers Wear Purple To Show Their ‘Spirit’

People across the country today participated in “Spirit Day,” wearing purple as a sign of support for LGBT youth. The movement, started by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, counted several visible people as champions of the anti-bullying cause: morning anchors, evening anchors and cable anchors on several networks were color-coordinated today.

On the morning shows:

On ABC’s “Good Morning America,” George Stephanopoulos and Robin Roberts participated, as did Ann Curry and Al Roker on NBC’s “Today.” All four co-hosts on “The View” — Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Elisabeth Hasselbeck — were decked out in purple as well.

After the jump, see who on the evening news and who on cable participated. Read more

TV News Reflects on 9/11/2001: HLN’s Jane Velez-Mitchell, CNBC’s Joe Kernen and Sue Herera

With the 10th anniversary of the 9/11/2001 terrorist attacks approaching, TVNewser reached out to anchors, reporters, producers and executives for their thoughts on that day, and what they believe has changed in the last 10 years.

HLN’s Jane Velez-Mitchell:

I was in Los Angeles, asleep, when the phone rang. My mom, who lives in midtown Manhattan, said simply “Turn on the TV.” Trying to process the unthinkable, I raced to my TV station, based at Paramount Studios in Hollywood. The contrast was surreal. Here I was, in the very heart of make believe, while a real horror that defied all imagination, unfolded on the other side of the nation. We were preempted by CNN but put on “standby.” I sat at the anchor desk, feeling helpless and frantic over the fate of relatives, friends and total strangers. I will never forget that sickening feeling of being unable to do a thing as I silently observed people plummeting from high floors to their deaths.

CNBC’s Michelle Caruso-Cabrera ‘You Know I’m Right’

TVNewser attended the book party for CNBC’s Michelle Caruso-Cabrera last night. The book, “You Know I’m Right: More Prosperity, Less Government,” is Caruso-Cabrera’s solution to what we should do about the economic and societal hardships of today.

Caruso-Cabrera, who co-anchors “Power Lunch” with Sue Herera and Tyler Mathisen, was proud of the turnout. “My colleagues all came out from New Jersey,” Caruso-Cabrera told TVNewser, “and some of them never come out.”

Among the guests: Jack Welch, former chairman and CEO of CNBC parent General Electric, and his wife Suzy Welch; fellow CNBC anchors Melissa Francis, Joe Kernen, and Tyler Mathisen made an appearance.

CNBC Stars Play Prominent Role in 20th Century Fox’s ‘Wall Street 2′

Wall-Street-2092210.jpgWhile certain executives at News Corp. may not agree, it is obvious that at the moment, the top business news channel on Wall Street is CNBC.

With that in mind director Oliver Stone prominently features the network’s anchors prominently in the upcoming sequel to his 1987 film “Wall Street.” This despite the fact that the film is produced by the 20th Century Fox film studio, a sister company to Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network.

Per MarketWatch.com‘s Jon Friedman:

And no actual journalists shine brighter in the new 20th Century Fox production than Maria Bartiromo and her CNBC posse. If you watch the network during the day, you’ll recognize the likes of Bartiromo, Jim Cramer, David Faber, Becky Quick, Sue Herera and Melissa Lee.

The network’s stars appear on camera so often that this film is practically a product placement for CNBC.

Indeed, Friedman notes that early on in the film, Bartiromo appears in a scene where she interviews Michael Douglas‘ character from the film, Gordon Gekko.

Inside CNBC During Dow Freefall

Of all the days to happen to be at CNBC doing a behind the scenes story, Business Insider’s Joe Pompeo was coincidentally in Englewood Cliffs, NJ yesterday as the Dow plunged and chaos erupted on Wall Street. He was in the studio as Erin Burnett and Jim Cramer took the air.

“There’s all sorts of stuff going on!” a hurried “Power Lunch” co-anchor Sue Herera told Pompeo. “Greece is melting down. The U.S. isn’t doing so well, either. Hopefully we’ll provide some calm.”

CNBC’s Bill Griffeth Signs Off… For Now

Griffeth_11.25.jpgIt was an emotional send-off for one of the CNBC originals this afternoon. As we first reported earlier this month, “Power Lunch” co-anchor Bill Griffeth is taking a leave of absence from CNBC for the next year.

Griffeth got a round of applause from the newsroom and hugs from his co-anchors Sue Herera and Michelle Caruso-Cabrera as he told the audience, “Life is a multi-legged stool and your job is only one of those legs. So, do take the time… have the courage, take the time to do something for yourself. I know I am fortunate to take the whole year off, but even if it’s not a whole year, take some time off for yourself.”

Breasts & Bombs (the F kind) Drop on TV

CNBC_9.17.pngAt the end of CNBC’s Power Lunch today, Sue Herera was reading a story about Chinese chickens vs. American chickens (don’t ask, apparently that’s an important business story). Anyway, Herera says, “American chicken feet tend to be larger and plumper than other chicken feet around the world, because Americans like more white meat chicken, so the feet are bred to be bigger and it costs more to buy them.”

So Michelle Caruso Cabrera chimes in: “Because American chickens have bigger breasts, so they must have bigger feet to hold them up.” Bill Griffith jumps in, “Well it’s time to go. Look at the clock.”

We don’t have that video. But we do have the clip of a slip from New York’s FOX 5 anchor Ernie Anastos also, oddly, involving chickens. He apparently meant to say, “Keep plucking that chicken.” But, he didn’t.

See it after the jump, and pay close attention to the look on the face of his co-anchor, former Fox News anchor, Dari Alexander

Roger Ailes, Other TVNewsers Pay Tribute to Jack Reilly

On-air tributes poured in yesterday for legendary producer Jack Reilly, who passed away yesterday morning. FNC’s FOX Report featured a package about Reilly’s life and included an interview with FNC Chairman Roger Ailes, who “was a production assistant for him” in 1962.

“He was a terrific television producer and a terrific human being,” said Ailes. “Sometimes that’s hard. With him, it looked easy.” See the FNC segment below, and after the jump, more on-air tributes:

Legendary News Producer Jack Reilly Passes Away

Jack Reilly, the former Good Morning America executive producer and later vice president of news at CNBC, passed away this morning at St. Vincent’s Hospital in New York at the age of 84.

Reilly was VP and managing editor of CNBC from 1994 to 1998. Before that, he was the executive producer of ABC’s Good Morning America from 1986 to 1994. Reilly transformed GMA, a faltering #2 show, into the nation’s top-rated morning show – a position the show held for more than five years. In a note to staff, ABC News president David Westin called Reilly, “a great producer and a true newsman who will live on in our memories and in the deep structure of Good Morning America.”

ABC’s Charlie Gibson called Reilly, “one of the finest people I ever had the good fortune to work with and for. Modest, shy, self-effacing, not an ounce of inflated ego, and yet a cracker jack producer who understood when he should intrude, and when to stand back and let others do their work.”

Before ABC, Reilly was one of the founding producers at Entertainment Tonight. From 1969 to 1978 was the EP of Group W’s “The Mike Douglas Show” and later, the “David Frost Show.” He was president of Group W Television from 1972 to 1975.

Reilly’s daughters Linda and Stephanie took their father to St. Vincent’s just yesterday afternoon. The cause of death was related to a fall he took a few weeks ago, which lead to internal bleeding.

Adds Gibson, “I think all of us loved the guy almost in spite of his reluctance to be loved.” We’re told CNBC anchors Sue Herera and Bill Griffeth will mention Reilly’s passing during the 1pmET hour of Power Lunch.

Services are planned for next week at St. Malachy’s Church in Manhattan.
