The Sunday Ticker: Kathie Lee’s Musical, Claman’s Triathlon, Murdoch’s Bid

  • Kathie Lee Gifford revealed this week that she has written a musical about the “Today” show.  The 18-minute musical, titled “Not Today and Tomorrow’s Not Looking Good Either,” features all the show’s anchors and crew. “It’s going to be live and it’s going to be so much fun,” Gifford said on “Today” Friday.

  • Fox Business anchor Liz Claman does a pair of interviews — with the Star-Ledger and Well + Good — about competing in her sixth New York City triathlon today. Claman is raising money for Building Homes For Heroes, a charity for wounded war veterans. “They embraced me and I embraced them and, to date, I’ve brought in $350,000 since I started raising money for them four years ago,” Claman said.

  • Variety reports on how far Rupert Murdoch will go to acquire Time Warner, which a managing director at RBC Capital Markets calls “the $64,000 question.” “It’s not purely what Time Warner’s worth, it’s what Fox can pay,” he says.
