The AM Ticker: Kelly, Stevens, Schweitzer

By Merrill Knox 

  • Megyn Kelly’s interview with Dick Cheney propelled “The Kelly File” to be the #1 show in cable news among the A25-54 demographic Wednesday night. The program delivered 2,378,000 total viewers and 389,000 A25-54 viewers.

  • CNN anchor and correspondent Andrew Stevens has returned to Tacloban six months after Typhoon Haiyan ravaged the Philippines. Stevens was the only international journalist in Tacloban when the storm hit last year.

  • Former Montana governor Brian Schweitzer, a contributor to MSNBC, has apologized for a comment that — as Peter Alexander put it on the “Today” show this morning — “managed to offend Democrats, Republicans, gays and southerners all at once.” Read more on the controversy at BuzzFeed; read the apology on Schweitzer’s Facebook page.
