By SteveK 

> Brian Williams joined Suze Orman, Seth Meyers, Elizabeth Edwards and others on a panel to discuss who would be Time Magazine’s Person of the Year (hmm, I wonder). FishbowlNY has the details and video.

> CNBC’s Erin Burnett anchors “The Russian Gamble,” a series of special reports from Red Square in Moscow on Monday. She is schedule to appear on the NBC Nightly News on Sunday and Today and Morning Joe on Monday as well.

> A tipster pointed us to the 10am hour of the Today show this morning, as Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb were getting on-air facials made of bird poo. Thanks, tipster.
