Newsmax host Greta Van Susteren wants fellow news anchors to do more than sit behind a desk and present the news. Susteren believes for an anchor to be the best at their job, they need to leave the desk.

She adds that an anchor who has done reporting and traveling on-site to various locations will better serve them when they return behind the desk. Susteren notes that traveling to multiple countries and reporting on the scene sharpened her skills when it was time to get back to being an anchor.

“When at Fox News, I appreciated the opportunity to travel to/report from North Korea (3 times), Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan, Egypt etc, to make me better at my job, and since at [Newsmax], in [the] short time here, I have been to Ukraine 2x, Poland 2x, Israel 2x, Colombia, etc.,” Van Susteren wrote on X

“No anchor should sign a contract which does not include reporting. Anchors need to get out of studios and see firsthand what is going on to better do their jobs.”

Greta Van Susteren likely knows that working in news media and media in general, people have to widen their range of what they can bring to the table, so it’s career advice for anyone wanting to become a news anchor.

Greg Gutfeld Executive Producer: We Won’t Be Wall-to-Wall Republican National Convention Just Because We’re in Milwaukee

“If there’s the kind of pop culture stuff that we do in the back half, we’ll still do that.”

Fox News is taking its entire primetime lineup to Milwaukee for the upcoming Republican National Convention. And while Greg Gutfeld will be on location, that doesn’t mean the convention will be the only topic of conversation.

Gutfeld! will air at 11 PM ET — an hour later than its usual time — during the convention to make way for a special news program hosted by Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum.

But the late-night show will be in the Wisconsin city speaking with a panel of usual guests. And with that usual cast of characters means that the content of the program isn’t likely to change from its usual format.

“It’s people who Greg loves and has good chemistry with,” Executive Producer Tom O’Connor told TVNewser. “I don’t think it’ll be wall-to-wall RNC coverage for the whole hour, either. If there’s the kind of pop culture stuff that we do in the back half, we’ll still do that. That’s stuff that Greg always wants to talk about.”

O’Connor added that “It was an easy decision” to move Gutfeld! to Milwaukee for the Republican National Convention. He continued by noting that Greg Gutfeld being more comfortable as the host of the show allows for more on-location programs.

Tucker Carlson has been off TV since his April 2023 ouster from Fox News. That’s about to change with the launch of an app for his Tucker Carlson Network.

In an email to subscribers, the Tucker Carlson Network revealed “Our team has spent months developing the new TCN TV app, and it’s about to go live. When this app is released, you’ll be able to watch Tucker on your TV at any time.

The Tucker Carlson Network app will join a growing field of smart TV apps in recent months. Nearly every network news outlet has a free, ad-supported TV streaming app with products like NBC News Now, ABC Live, and the recently rebranded CBS News 24/7.

It is unclear if the new app will require a subscription to the network to watch the various video programs being produced by the former cable news host.

Currently, subscriptions to the platform cost $9 monthly or $72 for the entire year.

“We all know our industry and company are going through a transformation and a number of short- and long-term decisions need to be made.”

After less than a year in the role, CBS News President Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews has departed the network in what is a reported cost-cutting measure.

Ciprian-Matthews informed employees Wednesday morning that she was vacating her role and will transition to serve as a “senior advisor” for coverage of the 2024 presidential race.

“Some may be asking why I’m announcing this now. We all know our industry and company are going through a transformation and a number of short- and long-term decisions need to be made,” Ciprian-Matthews wrote in a memo, according toVariety. “ I do not want to be disingenuous with any of you about who should drive these decisions. I’ve always leaned into my integrity and my values, and I felt it was important to be transparent at this juncture about my plans.”

She stepped into the role vacated by Neeraj Khemlani, who exited last year amid allegations that he was verbally abusive toward female colleagues.

Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews’ exit coincides with recent reports that Paramount Global — the parent company of CBS — was merging with Skydance Media as part of an $8 billion deal.

Should the role of CBS News President be filled, the hire will be the fourth person to claim that title since 2021.
