The Morning Ticker: Tornados, Abrams, Rodriguez…

  • Ashleigh Banfield and Soledad O’Brien will be hosting their CNN morning shows from tornado-ravaged Harrisburg, IL this morning. CNN’s Don Lemon as well as four other correspondents and meteorologists are in the Southern Illinois town. Wednesday morning’s tornado was determined to be an EF-4 the second-most powerful on the scale.
  • ABC News legal analyst Dan Abrams is back co-hosting “Live with Kelly” today and tomorrow. Abrams filled in  a few weeks ago alongside Kelly Ripa. On a related note, in this week’s “So What Do You Do?” feature, “Loveline” host Mike Catherwood tells us how his turn in Regis’s chair was a career changer. “I signed with a big agency, I got Dancing with the Stars, and that’s when everything started snowballing.”
  • Janelle Rodriguez, the newly-named VP of programming for CNN, is interviewed by the IWMF. Rodriguez talks about how her degree in rhetoric — yes, rhetoric — her master’s in Film, and the 2004 South Asian tsunami all put her on the path to CNN executive-ness.
