Uma's Still At FNC!

According to a report on the TV Newser website, Fox News Channel's own Uma Pemmaraju is working on a series of upcoming specials for FNC as well as reporting on Fox News Radio.

Hopefully, we'll be able to see Uma again real soon.

With David Asman now at Fox Business Network, I wonder is America's Sweetheart took over his job as head of the documentary unit.

WTF?!?! Uma Demoted Again?!

Apparently America's Sweetheart, Uma Pemmaraju, has been replaced on the Sunday morning (7-9 AM Pacific Time) editions of Fox News Live by Jamie Colby.

I can't believe that some retard----uh, executive---at FNC would give so much time to a former hostess for a poker telecast, who had post in swimwear for a men's magazine.

Both developments SUCK!

And there is what seems to be a disdain toward Ron Paul.

Thoughts On "Fox & Friends"

I miss the good old days of E.D. Hill.

Here are E.D., Steve Doocy, and Brian Kilmeade from 1999.

No More SkinnerVille On "Studio B?"

Until recently, Jane Skinner, who hosts an hour of Fox News Live each weekday (11:00 AM Pacific Time), did a news update half-way thourgh Studio B with Shepard Smith, then had a brief chat with Shep during a minisegment entitled SkinnerVille. It looks like that segment has been done away with.

Uma, Carly, and Friend

Here's a look at Uma Pemmaraju's interview with singer Carly Simon, as seen on her Fox News Channel special, Secrets of Success, which aired this past Sunday.

Don't Care For "Red Eye"

I don't care for that late night show entitled "Red Eye." I consider the show too goofballish, childish, and tabloid.

A Sunday Special For Uma

Fox News Channel's own Uma Pemmaraju has a special scheduled to air this afternoon at 1PM Pacific Time entitled Secrets For Success. This show features interviews with celebrities on how they have succeeded in their fields of endeavor.

Regular Hosting Gig For Uma?

The past three Sundays, Fox News Channel's very own Uma Pemmaraju has hosted the 90-minute period of Fox News Live from 7:00 to 8:30 AM Pacific Time (as well as doing news updates on the Sunday editions of Fox & Friends Weekend). Could it be that she has landed a regular hosting assignment? Let's all hope so. UMAniacs from all over have waited for four years since Uma's return for this talented veteran to have her own show. Speaking of shows, it has been reported on one or more Yahoo groups that she's been working on some upcoming special programming slated to air over the next few months on FNC.

The First Amendment Lost Thursday

Let me begin by writing that what Don Imus said last week on his syndicated radio show, simulcast of MSNBC, concerning the Rutgers women's basketball team, was absolutely stupid and obnoxious. Nevertheless, with the cancellation this past Thursday by CBS Radio of Mr. Imus' radio show, the day after MSNBC pulled the plug on its' I-Man simulcasts, with both versions being hit by advertiser defections, there seems to be a new chill in the air as far as what you can say over the airwaves are concerned. Meanwhile, you still have garbage eminating from crap---uh----Rap "Music Artists" whom I will not mention here that are violent and degrading that is still being allowed on the air, far worse than the brain-dead and inaccurate descriptions Don said on his now-defunct radio show about the Rutgers women's basketball team.

Happy Birthday to Fox News Channel's very own Uma Pemmaraju!

Busy Weekend For Uma

It's been a busy week for Fox News Channel's very own Uma Pemmaraju, who on Saturday, hosted the 11:00 AM to 12 Noon hour (Pacific Time) of Fox News Live. This morning she hosted a 90-minute block (7:00-8:30 AM Pacific Time) of FNL. You'll see more of Uma later today when she's scheduled to host the 11AM to 12 Noon (Pacific Time) hour of FNL.

The Center Chair On "Fox & Friends:" For Blondes Only?

Is it me, or has Fox News mandated that only blonde females sit in the center chair on the various editions of Fox & Friends? Today, Page Hopkins was in the center chair (sitting in for Gretchen Carlson, who is off all week). This past weekend, Ainsley Earhardt, a newcomer from KENS-TV in San Antonio ( who usually does overnight news updates Friday night/Saturday morning to Sunday night/Monday morning) , sat in the center chair. The previous two weekends, Courtney Friel sat in the center chair (except for Sunday of last week, when Page Hopkins did the honors). Is there a policy at Fox News that mandates thet only blondes sit in the center chair during the airing of Fox & Friends?

Is It Me?

Is it me, or am I tired of the ongoing stories on Curly Spears or the rotting corpse of Anna Nicole Smith?

Nothing To Write Home About (Except For Uma)

Courtney Friel's weekend at the center chair on Fox & Friends Weekend (in between Greg Kelly and Kelly Wright) was not really anything to write home about. Then again, what else could you say about someone who posed in Maxim magazine and had hosted TV coverage of poker tournaments. Just about the only real highlights of the weekend were provided by proven and experienced professional Uma Pemmaraju (pictured here, by herself, and with the F&FW trio) on Sunday with her headline updates, before she began hosting 90 minutes of Fox News Live.

One extra note: Upon being recruited for Fox & Friends Weekend, Courtney Friel (apparently at FNC's behest) removed the swimwear pictures from her website.

This Is A News Network?

Today marked the debut of one-time Maxim model Courtney Friel in the center chair on the weekend edition of Fox & Friends. I really did not bother to watch the show today. I was hoping after Kiran Chetry got the boot from Fox News that they would send a talented professional to fill the center chair at least until Alisyn Camerota returned from maternity leave. While it is true that this newcomer has a BA in political science and broadcast journalism and had worked at stations in Palm Springs and San Diego and at Court TV, I do not recall seeing swimwear pics of Jane Skinner, Laurie Dhue, or the departed Donna Fiducia on their web sites, though in the newcomer's case, her swimwear pics were taken down from her website yesterday, probably at FNC's behest. What highlights there may be on tomorrow's telecast would likely come from Uma Pemmaraju's news updates (substituting for Page Hopkins) . Now here's someone who should be seating at the center chair (the same might be said for Jane Skinner, Laurie Dhue, Lauren Green, Patti
Ann Browne, Molly Henneberg, you name it) . Uma's a true professional, who is scheduled to host Fox News Live with Eric Shawn during the 7-9AM Pacific Time period tomorrow morning.

Good News For Uma's Fans

According to the Fox News website, Uma Pemmaraju is scheduled to host Fox News Live this coming Sunday, starting at 7:00 AM Pacific Live. She'll likely host the first half-hour solo, then co-pilot the next 60 minutes with Eric Shawn.

Here's a chance to see a talented professional like Uma at work.

No Sad Loss

Looks like we have seen the last of Kiran Chetry on the Fox News Channel. Negotiations between Fox News and the erstwhile female headliner of the weekend version of Fox & Friends (as well as being a regular on Fox & Friends 1st , according to a report on Mediabistro's TV Newser web site had broken down.

Here is a PDF file of the letter from Fox News Legal and Business Affairs vice-president Dianne Brandi.

Maybe the FNC Brian Trust should consider putting Uma Pemmaraju in the center chair. If not Uma, how 'bout bringing back Donna Fiducia?

UPDATE: Kiran Chetry has jumped to CNN. She was filling in Friday morining for Soledad O'Brien on American Morning.

UPDATE #2: She has now officially joined CNN.

REPLACEMENT: Fox News has hired Courtney Friel, who has been with Court TV, local stations in San Diego and Palm Springs, and has a BA in Political Science and Broadcast Journalism.

She's also modeled in Maxim magazine.

She's filling the center chair this weekend on Fox & Friends.

That's right, sports fans. A one-time model in a men's magazine becoming, at least for the weekend, one of the hosts of FNC's morning program.

Are they nuts?

Apparently, the Brain Trust of FNC could not find swimsuit pics in men's magazines of Lauren Green, Molly Henneberg, Brigitte Quinn, Alisyn Camerota, Uma Pemmaraju, or Laurie Dhue.
