The AM Ticker: Roberts, Baier, Al Jazeera

By Alex Weprin 

  • “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts will be filling in for Kelly Ripa on “Live with Kelly and Michael” next Monday. Roberts will join Michael Strahan in interviewing Laurence Fishburne, among other guests.

  • Fox News anchor Bret Baier talks to Delta Sky magazine (you know, the free one you get on Delta flights). His topic of discussion: political hotspot Naples, Florida.

  • Al Jazeera is pushing back against the report yesterday that they would be shipping dozens of jobs from London to Doha. Rather, the company says a handful of jobs in the UK will temporarily shift to Qatar, which is short-staffed as they launch Al Jazeera America. Staffers will move back to London in a few months.
