Undeterred by the Boaty McBoatface sagaOldham Council asked the public to come up with a name for the vehicle. The winning entry - a play on the name of Nicole Scherzinger - was coined by year-old Eve McGrath, who is a fan of the X Factor judge. However, council officials decided to choose the winner themselves rather than the most popular as "there were quite a few rude ones".
I was working as the assistant to the head of personnel for the news division at a major network — you know, the one with the big eyeball logo. The word came in one day that the head anchorman was retiring, and my boss, Mr. Fredericks, was in charge of finding his replacement. Fredericks was one of those old-school types, the cigar-smoking, three-martini lunch sort.
When the network president met with him and suggested that the new anchor for the Evening News should be a woman, Fredericks was not happy.
Fredericks told me to set up interviews with notable newswomen to audition for the anchor position. They had to be well-established in the business, and show up with a tape of their reporting work and be ready to do a test shoot.
I spent a day on the phone with the top agents in the business and arranged a day of auditions with the people I considered the top in the business — Barbara Walters, Katie Couric, Connie Chung, Jane Pauley, Diane Sawyer, and Joan Lunden.
Word must have spread about the auditions, because I got a call from the agent of Lisa Ling, who asked to set up an audition for her.
Fredericks had a mini-studio set up in his office for auditions, just a little desk and a chair, and a backdrop with the network logo on it. I asked him about setting up a place for the women to change clothes.
The morning of the auditions came, and Barbara Walters was already waiting in the reception area when I got in at 9 — I guess she really wanted the job, and the multi-million dollar salary that went with it.
I offered her some coffee, then I took her portfolio and tape in to Mr. He got in about 9: On my desk, I ordered the other portfolios and tapes that the agents had sent over. Maybe they all wanted to check out the competition. I soon had the top newswomen in the country all sitting in the reception area, talking with each other over coffee.
They were all dressed in their finest, most professional outfits, and in looking at them all together I came to realize how attractive they were. Most of them had decided to dress pretty conservatively — Katie Couric and Diane Sawyer were wearing these Hilary Clinton-like pantsuits, Connie Chung and Jane Pauley were wearing knee-length skirts and matching jackets, and Joan Lunden must have come straight over from hosting the Morning Show, since she was wearing some kind of satiny dress, it was almost like an evening gown, with a pretty high slit in the side.
From where I sat, I got a really nice view of her legs as she sat there — I never thought of her as particularly sexy, but I had to admit she looked pretty hot in that dress! All of a sudden, I heard raised voices coming from Mr. She got to the reception area where the other women were waiting, and they asked her what had happened.
They started to primp up — a couple of them pulled out mirrors and checked their hair and makeup. Jane Pauley had her hair pulled back, but she took something out of it so it would seem longer.
Connie Chung got up and adjusted her skirt, making sure it was straight. They were actually willing to make a beauty contest out of it! Katie was in there for a good long while, and when she came out I showed Connie Chung into the office. I saw Fredericks changing the videotape on the deck attached to the camera, I guess he was putting each audition on a separate tape.
When Connie came out of the office, she was putting her jacket back on — I guess it had become hot under the camera lights so she had taken it off, but I started to imagine that something else had happened. By the time I got back to my desk, I had a raging hard-on from thinking about Jane Pauley stripping naked and all the things I would Around She was also kind of early for her interview — she introduced herself to me and then went to sit with Diane Sawyer and Joan Lunden.
Compared with what the others were wearing, she was dressed pretty casual, in a long- sleeved blouse, a vest and an above-the-knee blue skirt. I discreetly looked over at her legs when she sat down to talk with Joan Lunden.The fledgling network, which is an offshoot of Fox News Channel, only began broadcasting in , so it's the youngest of the financial news networks, but there's no short of powerhouse anchors and reporters on staff.
Most recently, they've hired away notable journalists like Melissa Francis from more established network CNBC.
