Dobbs Appears On Early Starting Tuesday; When Will Beck Appear On GMA?

By Brian 

Lou Dobbs‘s first Early Show gig is next Tuesday. Steve Friedman says he reached out to Dobbs after GMA hired Glenn Beck. Gail Shister reports:

 Ever the statesman, Friedman can’t resist taking a shot at No. 2 GMA and Beck, who has yet to make an appearance since his Jan. 9 hiring, according to an ABC rep.

“I don’t believe in amorphous signings,” Friedman says. “If you’re in the family, you can’t come on occasionally. You have to have a regular spot.”

Says ABC’s equally politic Jeffrey Schneider: “I don’t believe in punching down to engage the head of the third- place morning show.”
