Calling It Like He Sees It

As the anchor of “ABC World News” Charlie Gibson had to keep his predictions to himself; but now that he’s retired he can speak his mind and did so during a lecture at Quinnipiac University in which he called the election for Obama, saying, “Folks, Barack Obama is going to win.”

Journal Register Newspapers Adding Some Familiar Names

The Register Citizen and The Middletown Press debut redesigned print editions on Wednesday. Also being introduced in those Journal Register Company papers — along with the New Haven Register, is the following lineup of columnists:

Former Hartford Courant columnist Susan Campbell (Wednesdays)

Defense Attorney Norm Pattis (Thursdays)

Terry Cowgill (Fridays)

Sarah Darer Littman, a novelist and former securities analyst, and Heath Fahle, policy director for the Yankee Institute and former executive director of the Connecticut Republican Party (alternating Saturdays)

Ann DeMatteo, newly named managing editor of The Middletown Press (Sundays)

Susan Bigelow, who founded the trailblazing website CT Local Politics (Mondays).

And Andy Thibault, a former Hartford Courant and Register Citizen editor, Connecticut Freedom of Information Commission member and investigative reporter (Tuesdays)

From Matt DeRienzo’s blog (the source of this info):

The addition of Cowgill, Littman, Fahle and Bigelow are part of an expansion of our partnership with CTNewsJunkie.Com. Since March, we’ve carried its excellent coverage of Connecticut state government and politics, and are happy to be extending that relationship now to their team of columnists.

Where McMahon Doesn’t Live

Where We Live - with John Dankosky

John Dankosky, host of WNPR’s “Where We Live”, chronicles his program’s unsuccessful efforts to secure an interview with US Senate candidate Linda McMahon (whose campaign doesn’t return producer Tucker Ives’ phone calls):

We’ve said it before: If you have the money to pay for your message, I suppose you can afford to avoid interviews on “free” media like “Where We Vote.”

Capital Move for Debra Alfarone

NBC CT alum Debra Alfarone, who has been reporting for WPIX in New York since she left Connecticut in 2010, is moving to WUSA for a lead reporter role at the CBS affiliate in Washington D.C.


Hartford Courant columnist Rick Green, who has worked at the paper since 1986, has been named Politics Editor. His column and his blog CTConfidential will continue.
