NBC's Dan Abrams is 'in talks' with ABC News — but not with the site he founded
All day, reporters were buzzing about 15-year NBC veteran Dan Abrams, who's "in talks" with ABC News about becoming a legal analyst for "Good Morning America," filling in as an anchor on the weekend broadcast of the show, and taking on other duties across the news network's programs. But it seems that Abrams forgot to tell Mediaite, the website he founded. After reading the news everywhere but his own site, Mediaite managing editor Colby Hall clearly felt he'd been snubbed. "While we wish him luck," he wrote, "we also wish that he may have been willing to share some information with his staff at Mediaite, after all we cover Media." Ouch.
He added that, when reached for comment, "Abrams sipped from his Ramos Fizz, adjusted his smoking jacket and asked for the reporter's name again."
We wonder if Mediaiate just developed a special interest in covering ABC's legal analysts. Better make that Ramos Fizz a double.
