Michael Holmes Named Co-Anchor Of CNN’s ‘Newsroom International’

CNN has named Michael Holmes the co-anchor of “Newsroom International,” the edition of “CNN Newsroom” that airs from 12-1PM ET on CNN/U.S. He will anchor alongside Suzanne Malveaux.

“I suppose we do share the same passion, and that is field work and international news, it is what we do, isn’t it?” Holmes said on “Newsroom” Friday afternoon, talking to Malveaux.

Holmes is currently an anchor and correspondent for CNN International, based in Atlanta. He will continue as the anchor of “International Desk” on CNNI. An Australian native, Holmes joined CNNI in 1996, and has reported from all over the world, including covering the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He was a reporter fro Australia’s Nine Network before joining CNN.

 

Obama, Romney Campaign Express Concern Over Candy Crowley’s Role at Town Hall Debate

A day ahead of the second presidential debate, the Obama and Romney campaigns are agreeing on one issue: the moderator’s role in the Town Hall style debate. The campaigns complain CNN’s Candy Crowley is planning to take liberties with her role as moderator, according to TIME’s Mark Halperin. Halperin writes the campaigns are miffed about statements Crowley has made in interviews ahead of the Town Hall. To CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux, Crowley said: “Once the table is kind of set by the town-hall questioner, there is then time for me to say, ‘Hey, wait a second, what about X, Y, Z?’”

The campaigns claim this does not go along with what they agreed to.

As stated in the document: “In managing the two-minute comment periods, the moderator will not rephrase the question or open a new topic … The moderator will not ask follow-up questions or comment on either the questions asked by the audience or the answers of the candidates during the debate or otherwise intervene in the debate except to acknowledge the questioners from the audience or enforce the time limits, and invite candidate comments during the two-minute response period.”

Crowley’s not commenting to Halperin. She told TVNewser’s Gail Shister, in a column published this morning, “The whole idea is to channel the voter and what he’s still wondering about,” adding, “Their campaigns set the rules, largely. In some ways, that makes it a little easier for me.”

Halperin says one of his sources “expressed confidence that, despite Crowley’s remarks on CNN, the moderator would perform on Tuesday night according to the rules agreed to by the two campaigns.”

CNN Sending at Least 20 On-Airs to RNC, DNC

The first sentence of CNN’s just-released press release for convention coverage reads like this:

CNN will offer viewers nonstop, unbiased programming across on-air and digital platforms at the Republican and Democratic National Conventions beginning later this month.

It’s as if CNN is saying, if you watch Fox News or MSNBC during the conventions, those networks will lean right, or left, or forward (never backward), so watch us if you want it down the middle. Our TVNewsers Alex Weprin and Merrill Knox will be at the conventions — ahem — keeping them honest.

Anyway, CNN has big plans. Read about them after the jump…

The Ticker: NALEO, SCOTUS, Nightly

  • The Supreme Court ruled today that the FCC “failed to give Fox or ABC fair notice prior to the broadcasts in question that fleeting expletives and momentary nudity could be found actionably indecent.” ABC is pleased: “We’re pleased with the decision of the Supreme Court regarding the episode of NYPD Blue.”

  • Clickspring Design has won an award for the design of NBC’s Studio 3B, home to “Nightly News” and “Rock Center.” Nightly began broadcasting from the new studio on October 24, 2011, a week ahead of Rock Center’s debut on October 31.

CNN Switches Up 12 PM Format, Launches ‘Newsroom International’

During the work day (9am-4pmET), CNN has long relied on “CNN Newsroom” to bridge the gap between its morning shows and “The Situation Room.” Now the network seems to be switching it up a little bit, tweaking the long-running format. At NoonET today, CNN launched a new hour of “CNN Newsroom” called “Newsroom International.”

The hour looks a lot like the typical “CNN Newsroom” programming, but instead of talking U.S. politics or business, the hour focuses on international news and events. Given what is happening in Syria, and the elections in Egypt and Greece, the timing for the new format couldn’t have been better.

Suzanne Malveaux, who anchors “CNN Newsroom” from 12-2pmET, also handles “International Newsroom.” She will be joined by CNN International anchors Richard Quest, Michael Holmes and Hala Gorani.

CNN has been making tweaks to its programming lineup over the last few weeks, most notably canceling “John King USA” and adding an extra hour of “Situation Room.”

The logline for the new hour is after the jump.

Fox Business Network stocks editor Liz MacDonald!

“It was great fun going up against really tough competition,” MacDonald says. “I am honored and thrilled to be this year’s champion.”

It was a close match this year, with CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux and Kyra Phillips very close behind MacDonald in the standings. This is the second straight year that a competitor for one of the business news networks won. Last year’s winner was Bloomberg TV’s Dominic Chu. Chu also had a good showing this year, placing ninth.

In last place, tragically, was your humble TVNewser editor, who clearly needs to reevaluate his college basketball picking skills. My strategy of picking teams who had cool mascots (Blue Devils? Awesome!) may not have been the most sound.

A big “Thank You!” to all of this year’s participants.

The final standings are below.

CNN’s Awkward Interview with Martha Stewart: ‘I thought this was going to be about my beautiful entertaining book’

Kind of a rough show for CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux Monday. During the NoonET hour, this happened. About an hour earlier, Malveaux interviewed Martha Stewart about her new book — her 75th. After a couple questions on the book, Malveaux asked about the new book by Stewart’s daughter Alexis, “Whateverland,” which does not always give a flattering portrayal of her mother. “I’m not going to say anything bad about the book, because we were laughing hysterically when we read it,” said Stewart.

Malveaux then tried to move on, asking about Stewart’s time in prison. “I thought this was going to be about my beautiful entertaining book!”

And then politics, as Malveaux said: “You are a very successful businesswoman. You’re also an active Republican.”

“Where did you get that?” Stewart asked. “I have always been a registered Democrat.”

Politico edited together some of the highlights, after the jump…
