The Evening Ticker: Baier, Bourdain, Williams

  • Bret Baier and his wife Amy co-chaired the Children’s Ball benefiting Children’s National Medical Center over the weekend. The event raised $10.8 million dollars for the hospital — the most money ever raised at a single charity event in the nation’s capital.

  • In preliminary ratings, the third season premiere of “Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown” had its best debut in the A25-54 demo and won its 9pm Sunday timeslot on cable news. Among total viewers, the show was up +8% over the season two premiere.

  • Brian Williams has accepted an invitation to speak at Nashville’s Hillwood High School graduation next month after a group of students produced this video in response to the address he delivered at Elon University’s commencement last year.
