The Ticker: Ailes Honored, ‘The Five’ Reigns, News in Prime

  • Roger Ailes, celebrating his 73rd birthday today, is one of four recipients of the 2013 Bradley Prize. Ailes is being honored for his “innovative business-building strategies” which have “revolutionized the uncovering and delivery of news in America,” said the head of the Milwaukee-based Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation.

  • Ailes creation “The Five” is on a hot streak this week. The opinion show set around a table with 5 Fox Newsers has been the #1 show among total viewers at 5pm for seven straight days, outpacing Nickelodeon, TNT and USA.

  • TVSpy reports NBC and CBS this Fall will debut half-hour primetime shows with TV news reporters as primary characters. On NBC Michael J.
