The Saturday Ticker: Francis, Turner, Twitter

  • TVNewser hears that FBN’s Melissa Francis–who is getting her own 5PM FBN show later this year–will be making her Fox News guest-hosting debut next week. Francis will be filling in for Gretchen Carlson on “Fox & Friends” Monday and Tuesday.
  • Our sister blog FishbowlDC scoops that CNN has poached Fox News Capitol Hill producer Trish Turner to join the staff at “AC360.” She will be leaving DC and heading to New York.
  • The Wrap’s Lucas Shaw writes about CNN’s social media domination, and argues that maybe… just maybe, there could be a correlation between social media reach and ratings, at least during big events. “I don’t think anyone can make case that there’s this causation where what happens on social media cause big ratings,” Steve Krakauer, senior digital producer for CNN, told TheWrap. “But on some of big events there’s a correlation.”
