  • Here’s something you probably didn’t know about Fox Business Washington correspondent Rich Edson: he began his television career with an internship at “SNL.” Edson recounts the experience for Northern Virginia Magazine.


  • “CBS Sunday Morning” averaged 5.93 million Total Viewers and a 1.6/08 in A25-54 viewers last month, marking its best February sweeps delivery in Total Viewers since 1994 and in the A25-54 demographic since 2010.


  • Bloomberg TV has announced a multi-year partnership with a Nigeria-based content provider, Optima Media Group, launching in the second half of this year. The partnership will create Bloomberg Television Africa, with content produced in Lagos, Johannesburg and Nairobi.
