Inside the Book Party for Melissa Francis’ Diary of a Stage Mother’s Daughter

Melissa Francis jokes that she wants to be writer when she grows up. The Fox Business Network anchor is already on her second career. And with the publication of her memoir, “Diary of a Stage Mother’s Daughter,” she’s on her way to fulfilling that adulthood dream. Francis was feted last night at Astra, an event space overlooking Manhattan’s East River. The memoir is a brutally honest, sometimes painful, yet touching story of life as a child actor. After dozens of commercials, her first big break came on “Little House on the Prairie.”

In a Media Beat interview this summer Francis told us the book, includes “the typical family dramas, set against the backdrop of a very unusual childhood.”

But last night, no drama, just celebrating. Among the guests, FNC/FBN c0-founder and chairman Roger Ailes, FBN EVP Kevin Magee, anchors Neil Cavuto, Liz Claman, Lori Rothman, Cheryl Casone, Elizabeth MacDonald, Tracy Byrnes, Sandra Smith, Nicole Petallides, Tom Sullivan and Dennis Kneale.

From FNC, we spotted Bill Hemmer and chatted with Megyn Kelly about election night, and the moment that took her from the studio through the bowels of Fox News to the decision desk as they explained calling Ohio for Pres. Obama, giving him the election and giving Karl Rove agita. Following many long months of election coverage and, more recently, of Hurricane Sandy, which left her without power for a week, Kelly was looking forward to taking today off.

Meet Your FBNers

mcdowell_8-18.JPGThat FBN PR machine is hard at work — three profiles of on-air talent appeared over the weekend.

While Liz Claman talks to business news fans in the major markets, other FBNers appear in some of the not-as-major markets:

Dagen McDowell in the Lynchburg News Advance (VA): “I’ve always worked for people who gave me a chance. I haven’t always had the perfect resume. [But] if you step up and work hard and do a good job, I’ve always been able to move up that way.”

Tom Sullivan in the Sacramento Bee: “This is what I wanted — to work at the highest level. And there’s nothing bigger in broadcasting than network TV in New York.”

Cody Willard in Mirage Magazine (of the University of New Mexico): “I didn’t know what ‘making it’ meant. The day I signed the [FBN] contract, I felt I’d completed my mission, living on my own, surviving in the city.”
