Roger Ailes, George Stephanopoulos, Tom Brokaw and Arianna Huffington Turn Out for CURE

Obama campaign senior adviser David Axelrod spent his final night with his mustache at New York’s Four Seasons Restaurant raising awareness — and money — for epilepsy research. 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.”

TVNewser spotted Fox News chairman Roger Ailes giving a warm hello to Susan Axelrod and Arianna Huffington as David Axelrod gave his remarks. The Axelrods established CURE: Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy as the family struggled to come to terms with their daughter Lauren’s epilepsy.

‘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.
