The Ticker: Oil, Homage, Alaska…

> Charlie Gibson will anchor World News from Dallas this Wednesday. Gibson will interview ExxonMobil chairman and CEO Rex Tillerson. The interview is part of a special series “Oil Crunch” which airs all this week.

> In an homage to Keith Olbermann, truTV’s Ashleigh Banfield is doing a “Countdown” on her show today. The 2-hour In Session (on now) is counting down the 14 counts that a judge in Las Vegas is facing for misconduct.

> NBC’s Bob Dotson spent the weekend in Alaska reporting for an upcoming Today show “American Story.” Dotson and crew will feature Alaska’s community of Russian Old Believers. The journos were even welcomed by the locals: “They followed our instruction and we’re thankful for that,” said Anecta Kalugin, whose wedding NBC covered Saturday. “Other times, we’ve had TV crews from abroad come and they just abused the privileges.” The story airs next month.
