Murdochs Hear Resounding "No"; A Rose By Any Other Show

October 25, 2011
Rupert Murdoch and the gang did not lose control of the News Corp. board, but the voters sure stated their negative opinions about the first family. James and Lachlan received "no" votes of 35 percent and 34 percent, respectively, in their board reelection campaigns. As Jeff Bercovici points out, the Murdoch family owns 40 percent of the votes, which means the brother duo received negative votes from the majority of the non-Murdoch vote owners. Rupert, for his part, only got 16 percent "no." He will, as always, survive...

Charlie Rose to The Early Show? That's the rumor Brian Stelter confirms. The third-place morning show is considering skewing more political as it tries to break out of the doldrums and Rose would be a nice get. According to the host, he would continue his PBS and Bloomberg TV show... Larry King radio host? He told Talkers that he is very close to signing a deal. The bigger news is that he might be returning to television since he misses covering big stories on a day-to-day basis... Michele Norris will leave All Things Considered for a year. The co-host's husband is working for the Obama campaign... Linda Yaccarino leaves Turner Entertainment where she was a top ad sales executive...

Details' loss is The Daily's gain. The Conde Nast publication's former staffer David Walters leaves for the News Corp. product where he'll be deputy features editor. Additionally, Rich Juzwiak comes on board as culture reporter... Lisa Frazier leaves as CEO of The Bay Citizen. She has been in charge since the beginning in 2009 but departs just six weeks after Jonathan Weber resigned as editor-in-chief to join Reuters. Frazier was making $400,000... Time Digital grabs Jody Jones as SVP. She will start on November 7... Marc Davila signs on as deputy art director at Food Network Magazine. He had been associate art director at Travel+Leisure... Southern Living scores Robert Perino as creative director. He joins from the art director spot at Budget Travel...

LA Weekly signs Sarah Fenske as editor-in-chief. She replaces Drex Heikes and previously worked as managing editor of Riverfront Times, another Village Voice Media product. A few other writers are also gone from LA Weekly... Apple steals data center expert Scott Noteboom from Yahoo. He had been head of the global data center infrastructure division since 2005.
