Cable Covers 11th Hour of Debt Deal, Government Restart

Screen Shot 2013-10-16 at 9.22.43 PMThe president appeared in the White House briefing room this evening following the Senate vote, but before the House vote, on a budget deal that reopens the government and raises the debt ceiling. “I want to thank the leadership for coming together and getting this done. Hopefully next time, it won’t be in the 11th hour,” said the president.

As the statement came at 8:30pmET, during TV’s primetime in the Eastern and Central time zones, the broadcast networks did not produce special reports. The remarks, as well as near non-stop coverage of the debt deal, is being covered on cable news and business channels. Bret Baier took over coverage on Fox News from Bill O’Reilly around 8:20pm. CNN’s Anderson Cooper anchored from Washington and MSNBC’s Chris Hayes anchored coverage during his show. Fox News is planning live coverage into the night with live editions of “Hannity” at 10, Baier will be back at 11 and Megyn Kelly at Midnight.

CNN’s Piers Morgan was attending his own book party on the Upper East Side of Manhattan this evening, before shuttling back to host his show at 9pmET and another live edition at Midnight. Guests included ABC’s Diane Sawyer, CBS’s Charlie Rose, NBC’s Matt Lauer and CNN’s Chris Cuomo. Morgan wasn’t the only cable anchor holding court tonight. Across town, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was late for his own book party as the votes were being cast, and he was still taping “Hardball.” We’ll have coverage from both events tomorrow on TVNewser.

> More: The broadcast networks updated the evening newscasts for the West Coast. Also, at 10:18pm ET, NBC News provided a brief special report on the House vote. Brian Williams anchored live from New York.

Trish Regan Got Her Start in TV By Agreeing to ‘Work Every Single Holiday’

Bloomberg TV’s Trish Regan does a Q+A in the May issue of Resident magazine. The “Street Smart” anchor — who originally wanted to be an opera singer — talks about how she ended up in television:

I got a lot of exposure to the financial community through internships during school summers. First at a hedge fund and then as an analyst in at Goldman Sachs. At Goldman, I worked on the emerging debt markets desk and really liked it. I was analyzing the economic and political consequences of what was going on in Latin America and thought that was what I was going to do upon graduation. They made me a job offer, and I had every intention of going, except in my senior year I interned at NBC Nightly News and suddenly, everything made sense. I’d found my calling.

How did you land that job?

I just sent in an application and told them I would work every single holiday! They needed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s covered, and I said, “I’m your girl.”

Regan also talks about her upcoming projects, including a series of reports on Brazil’s economy which air next week on “Street Smart.”

‘I Do Not Think Showtime Was a Brand that CBS Would Have Trusted Two Years Ago’

Showtime president of entertainment David Nevins was a guest on Bloomberg TV’s “Street Smart” Friday, and he had a few words about the long-running CBS newsmagazine “60 Minutes.” CBS is a sister network to Showtime, and Showtime recently started airing “60 Minutes Sports,” a spin-off of the iconic series.

“’60 Minutes’ is one of the great brands in the history of television,” Nevins said to Bloomberg’s Trish Regan. “I do not think Showtime was a brand that CBS would have trusted two years ago, but now you get in that cycle of everything feeding into each other.”

The Ticker: Gasparino, Hollywood, Couric

Axelrod and his wife Susan hosted many Manhattan luminaries at the CURE New York reception at which Mayor Mike Bloomberg was presented an award for his support. In his brief remarks, Bloomberg caught sight of NBC’s Tom Brokaw in the crowd: “There’s Tom Brokaw. He’s my neighbor …. and my golf partner. Maybe he’ll even give me a few strokes next round.”

‘Street Smart’ Live From Ohio Ahead of Election Day

Bloomberg TV’s Trish Regan  and Adam Johnson are anchoring “Street Smart” from Ohio today as the Presidential candidates enter their final weekend campaigning.  The show originates from the American Sign Museum in Cincinnati and will focus on taking the pulse of the local economy in the battleground state.

Regan was interviewed by the Cincinnati Business Courier:

I really think it’s the epicenter of this election because Ohio is so important and because jobs matter so much in this economy. It’s also neck and neck right now, which makes it an interesting place to be as a journalist…

We wanted to be on the front lines of this election, and this is really where it’s at. Ohio is it.
