CNN shakes up news administration

CNN shakes up news administration By Jon Friedman, CBS.MarketWatch.com Last Update: 5:40 PM ET Jan. 23, 2004

NEW YORK (CBS.MW) - CNN, a unit of Time Warner, is shaking up its U.S. news organization and announcing a new Washington bureau chief.

TRADING CENTER

Princell Hair, executive vice president and general manager of CNN's U.S. operations who joined CNN last year, said Friday in an internal statement, a copy of which was obtained by CBSMarketWatch.com, that he is making sweeping changes.

In Washington, Hair appointed David Bohrman, the executive producer of Aaron Brown's show "NewsNight," to be the new bureau chief.

Hair's memo said CNN is "working with" the previous bureau chief, Kathryn Kross, "on a new role with the network." He didn't offer any details.

Kross didn't return a phone call placed to her in the Washington bureau.

In Atlanta, where is CNN has its headquarters, some staffers were concerned that Hair's changes underscore the management's desire to centralize what it had often been a de-centralized news-gathering operation, and a consolidation of the general news production.

Hair said to his troops: "As good as this news organization is -- and make no mistake, it is the best in the world -- it can be even better."

CNN is facing considerable pressure to re-establish itself. This is an opportune time for CNN to assert itself, in the early stages of the presidential campaigns as well as a news-rich year that will also include the rebuilding of Iraq, a continuation of the war on terrorism and the Athens Olympics.

In the past few years, CNN has fallen behind Fox News (FOX: news, chart, profile) in the widely followed TV ratings. CNN long held an advantage over its competitors when big stories broke. But even during the Iraqi war last spring, Fox led in the ratings, underscoring CNN's decline in popularity among American TV viewers.

Hair said the company was making changes because it wanted to "increase the degree to which newsgathering and programming are fully integrated. Nowhere is this integration more important than in our DC bureau."

Hair cited Bohrman's "passion for the news and skill as a producer."

CNN's Washington bureau is one of the network's ornaments. Its reporters, led by the White House correspondents John King, Dana Bash and Suzanne Malveaux and the national security reporter David Ensor and Justice Dept. correspondent Kelli Arena, are widely respected.

But CNN has been hurt by defections of some of its on-air correspondents.

In addition, CNN is changing its chiefs' responsibilities in its 11 domestic bureaus, saying the current system of having bureau chiefs in some cases double as reporters "does not fully make sense."

In most cases, "reporters will no longer be domestic bureau chiefs," he said. He will assign full time administrators to be the bureau managers.

In addition, the U.S. will be divided into four regions, Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, West as well as Washington, DC. Each segment will be managed by a regional bureau chief and a supervising producer will manage daily activities in the outlying bureaus, Hair said.

Boston and New York will make up the Northeast region and will be managed by Karen Curry in New York, Hair said.

Atlanta and Miami will encompass the Southeast and be supervised by MaryLynn Ryan in Atlanta. CNN has expanded the Chicago and Dallas bureaus and added Denver to comprise the Midwest region, which will be led by Edith Chapin in Chicago. Los Angeles bureau chief Pete Janos will direct the Western region, including Seattle and San Francisco.

Jon Friedman is media editor for CBS.MarketWatch.com in New York.

The first envelope instructed the new CNN management to "blame previous management".

They have now opened the second envelope. It instructed them to "re-organize".

Third envelope still to come...

I am amazed by the change in Stuart Varney when he left CNN for Fox.

It was somewhere in the late 80's that Stuart applied for a job with my stations. He was badly in need of a job. I was impressed with him. I didn't hire him because I knew he would never stay. He was too good to be in my sized market. he would have only stayed until he got a better job.

It is funny. I never aggreed with what Stuart said on CNN but I have agreed with what he says on FOX.

They are changing graphics, they are changing pace, they are changing producers, they are changing talking heads,.. they are changing everything but what will fix the problem,.... they need to change the content... They will have to fall several more rating points before they finally figure out what is wrong.

CNN and its parent company havn't a clue about the problems.... they are not likely to have a clue about the fix.

It is really pretty simple if youwant viewers just put on what the people want to watch not what you want to program.

The problem is management is never a typical viewer. Yet much of management picks programmers that program to please the boss.

I used to tell my programmers that if I ever tune in and personally like what you are programming, you are just one notch away from being fired.

David Bohrman, the executive producer of Aaron Brown's show "NewsNight,"

If there is a more boring news show on TV, I wish somebody would tell me what it is.

As for Varney, I saw him on Fox not long ago discussing Paul O'Neill. The only thing he didn't do was spit. It was fascinating to watch.

ROTFLMCO!!! Notice that they have broken the coverage into regions in order to get a better view of what the nation wants, but they still have all their bureau chiefs in very large and very liberal cities (with the exception of Dallas). What do they think is going to change?

They don't even know that the rest of the country is really out here let alone think about trying to understand what we belive and live for. How on earth do they ever think they are going to appeal to us?

Half the country is conservative. Of the other half, 50% are elitists and the other 50% would never watch the news if their lives depended on it, it might mean they have to actually think about things. So CNN has cut it's market share down to 25% at the most. And they wonder why they are losing the ratings race.

You might be able to shed some light on this question:

WHY ARE 99% OF ALL NEWSREADERS NOWADAYS WOMEN?

They're easier to look at?

It's a crappy job that only they are willing to put up with?

They're willing to work for less?

You got me kid... Brown is like watching paint dry.

I was watching CNN a bit today and once again they has new graphics and bumbers... As if that were a factor.

If I were producing Arron Brown I would put laxatives in Brown's coffee and put on the Janitor in his place. It would have to improve ratings.

There were huge budget problems when Fox news was started.

Roger Ailes had a problem They had no audience yet and most cable systems would not put them on. CNN is paid by every cable system they are on, 25 cents for every subsriber. It matters not if they actually view CNN. CNN gets paid 25 cents a month for every cable subscriber that that can get their channel.

To get on the systems Fox had to agree to be paid nothing for 10 years. So the parent companys had to pay the entire costs until they had enough audience to generate advertising revenues.

Female newscasters are plentyful and they don't get paid as much as men. So Ailes hired females to deliver the news. He hired pretty ones over ugly ones, hoping channel hopping males would stay to watch his news babes.

Babes are cheap and attract the attention of channel flippers.. that is the story. Now everone does it.

You should see how much time the "professionals" spend on the various news industry web sites, lavishing embarrassing amounts of praise on Keith Olbermann's show. They absolutely worship it, yet it's the lowest-rated prime time show on all three news channels. And your numbers have to really SUCK to earn bottom place.

Interestingly enough, when CNN *DOES* figure it out, various and sundry leftists will use it and Fox as examples that "the media is Conservative" and that the liberal media is an invention of the VRWC.

BTW I don't consider Fox News remotely close to conservative. They just don't lie blatantly and intentionally to promote a political agenda as does CNN. If they want to consider relatively unbiased and truthful news reporting as conservative... that's fine by me. :)

You mean soft focus? That's been around forever. It's literally just a slight blurring of the image to take the edge off. (Unfortunately, it tends to make everything else in the picture look like some gauzy fabric has been draped over the camera lens. Of course, contemporary digital technology helps make it less noticeable.) If you want to see it in action, watch ANYTHING anchored by Barbara Walters.

CNN was threatened to be dropped off the channel lineup of DISH Network. I was watching the CEO of Echostar, Charlie Ergen, explain that CNN has dismal ratings, no one watches them, and they bear the burden of paying for a channel no one watches. It may have been an idea tossed out there, but I know Charlie Ergen really cares about all of us DISH Network customers by giving them the kind of channels they want at a fair price.

Yes, also notice even when they broadcast the same speech and camera as CNN and MSNBC, on Fox, the colors are always brighter and the picture is crisper.

Fox has video guys with racks of real time gear to tune and sweeten the image. Their audio is also better produced than CNN's.

They got a new makeup artist recently, too.

Also, I think Susan Esterich got some plastic surgery! anyone else notice that?

It may have been an idea tossed out there, but I know Charlie Ergen really cares about all of us DISH Network customers by giving them the kind of channels they want at a fair price.

That was definitely a shot across the bow aimed directly at Time Warner management. The media conglomerates are increasingly trying to screw the cable and satellite companies, both by annually jacking up the amount they charge the cablecos for channels that the cablecos couldn't possibly ever drop without their subscribers going nuts (ESPN, for example), and also by making the cablecos some "offers they can't refuse": "Oh, you're not going to run CNN? Okay then, we're not going to allow you to run any Time Warner networks then. No Cartoon Network, no HBO, no Cinemax, no TBS, no TNT..." Any cable company that couldn't run any of those channels would end up out of business. It's pretty much legalized extortion. And it's why almost all the new channels you get on digital cable and satellite are owned by the same three or four media conglomerates: When the yearly contracts come up, they say, "Okay, you're going to start carrying MTV 14, and pay us for it. Take it or leave it."

I've been saying for a long time that the day is coming where cable and satellite companies are going to switch to a la carte programming, where you pay only for the channels you want. Whether this happens because the cablecos finally get some backbone, or because they get the FCC to mandate it, I don't know. But the showdown is coming.

I've certainly noticed it. When they all cover the same event, like the SOTU address, the audio of FOX has more bass and punch than MSNBC and CNN and it's easier to listen to. Without adjustments to my set, flipping between the three, MSNBC to me looks like it lacks color, CNN is slightly better, and FOX is about where I would normally like it. As for the audio, to me, CNN is softest, followed by MSNBC, and then FOX.

Don't get me wrong, I didn't mind television. I worked at a cable access channel while going to broadcast college back in 1989. Loads of fun, and it was small enough I got to do everything from host, run camera, direct, and run the switches. I'm in small market radio, similar sort of workload as like a small cable access , TV channel. LOL

Never a moment to stand around with my hands in my pockets looking like I was lost. LOL

Radio is a blast, no matter where your at. :)

Yep, alot of DISH Network subscribers went nuts when DISH yanked ABC Family because Disney raised their prices across the board two years ago. Disney fought long and hard, DISH threatened to take them to court, then Disney lowered their price to a fair rate when DISH yanked ABC Family, while leaving everything else.

Personally, it was no big deal for me, but that's another example of a provider trying to strongarm a media giant.

I'd like to see an ala carte subscription scheme setup myself. There's alot of crap I don't watch or have no intention of watching. Especially some of the Community Service channels like Free Speech TV. It's a liberal whacko cesspool. Years ago, when I had a large backyard dish, in the days before media conglomeration, I could literally sit down, and pick and choose the channels I wanted. Charlie Ergen said he'd love to do that, but in this day and age, he'd get conglomerates like Time Warner torqued off.
