The Morning Ticker: Dateline, Pelley, Damon

  • NBC’s “Dateline” is adding a Saturday edition. Beginning this weekend, the 2-hour Saturday Night Mysteries promises to feature “fascinating characters and suspenseful twists-and-turns.” The dean of Saturday night true crime, CBS’s “48 Hours,” is often the No. 1 show of the night on broadcast TV. ABC’s “20/20″ also recently added a Saturday edition.

  • “CBS Evening News” anchor Scott Pelley tells SFGate that while the way we get news has changed, the basics hasn’t: “I tell young people these days it doesn’t matter if you’re carving on a stone tablet or a glass tablet: The rules of storytelling have not changed.”

  • CNN foreign correspondent Arwa Damon was honored by Oxfam for her “fearless reporting on conflict and humanitarian disasters in Syria” last night. In an interview with FishbowlDC Damon says of her career path: “I chose this life. I chose this work, and I don’t regret any of it.”
