What Recession? Anderson Cooper Nearly Doubles in Price

Last night in Times Square, Bailey House had its annual auction which featured several tvnewsers as items up for bid, including Meet & Greets and studio tours with Katie Couric, Charlie Gibson, Brian Williams, and Rachel Maddow as well as VIP tickets for the Today show and GMA Summer concert series. The last we looked they were each in the $700-$800 range. In the not-so-silent Auction portion, a dinner with CNN’s Anderson Cooper went for $7,500 up from $4,500 last year.

But the highlight for us may have been talking with Jane Pauley who says she’s got some exciting things lined up in 2009. But she also revealed that when she goes back to 30 Rock these days, she has to stop first at the visitor’s desk.

ABC’s Jeffrey Schneider was once again co-chair along with Jeffery Povero. In all, Bailey House raised more than $700,000 to help homeless people living with AIDS.
