Metro Detroit: Newsmakers Sep 5, 2006




Detroit News:

Mike Stone gave out an exceedingly wrong phone number on the radio last week. Remarkably, it wasn't even the worst brain cramp of the month for a WDFN-AM (1130) air host. How it stacks up against brain cramps of Detroit News readers, I hope to find out. Stone, who pulls the afternoon shift at the sports talk station with Detroit News columnist Bob Wojnowski, was launching into a discussion about whether Detroit fans would ever want to see New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez in a Tigers uniform... WDFN's Stoney fumbles, gives cell phone number while on the air (Tue 9/5)

Today marks a landmark shift in television history. As former "Today" show co-host Katie Couric takes her seat at CBS as the first woman anchor, former comedian Rosie O'Donnell will become a co-host on ABC's chick chat-fest, "The View." Coincidentally, it's a job Couric indirectly created for O'Donnell. About a week from now, O'Donnell's predecessor Meredith Vieira will officially replace Couric on Sept. 13 as NBC's new morning co-host. While you've heard all this before, there are probably a few things you didn't know about these three powerful and influential women... 1-2-3 shuffle (Tue 9/5)

Detroit Free Press:

It's launch time for Katie Couric. The TV superstar is set to debut tonight on the "CBS Evening News," which airs at 6:30 p.m. on WWJ-TV (Channel 62). She's making history as the first female solo anchor of a major-network evening newscast. She'll also be heavily scrutinized on her clothes, her hair and her first-night ratings... All eyes on Couric (Tue 9/5)
