The revolving door to the Fox-owned KTTV Channel 11 newsroom is spinning once again. Both anchors of the station's 10 p.m. news, Dennis Morgino and Pat Lalama, will be removed from their positions to make way for new news personalities in the next month or two, the station confirmed Monday. A KTTV spokeswoman said that both Morgino and Lalama, who served as reporters at the station before moving "temporarily" to the anchor desk, will be asked to stay on at the station.

In at least 10 of South Florida's major tourist hotels, guests can order room service, sun themselves in poolside lounge chairs, and sip tall drinks topped with tropical fruit and tiny umbrellas. But they can't watch the evening news on Channel 7. In what is being called a protest of WSVN-TV's often-sensational, crime-driven news coverage, the hotels' management has blocked access to the Fox Network affiliate in some 3,000 rooms in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Key West.

For the last six years Charlie Rose has been the insomniac's best friend. As the Emmy Award-winning host of CBS' "Nightwatch," weekdays from 2 to 6 a.m., Rose interviewed everyone from Woody Allen to Charles Manson. But a few months ago he left the Washington, D.C.-based "Nightwatch" and gave up comfort, security and protection" to anchor the new syndicated magazine series "Personalities," which debuts Monday at 7 p.m. on KTTV.

Completing a swift rise and fall from TV stardom, controversial host Glenn Beck will lose his once-popular Fox News show later this year, the network announced Wednesday. Beck's 5 p.m. program, which earned scorn from liberals for its attacks on President Obama as well as its devotion to sometimes-obscure right-wing thinkers, was a top cable draw in 2009 and a signpost for the populist "tea party" movement in last year's midterm elections, which dealt a ballot-box rebuke to the White House.

On Monday's newscast at 10 p.m. local time, syndicated talk- show host Jerry Springer will launch a monthlong stint as a commentator for the NBC station here--a management decision that so disgusted a respected veteran anchor that she has resigned. Carol Marin, a WMAQ-TV anchor since 1985, said her on-air farewells Thursday night. Marin already had been concerned about the direction local television news was taking before Springer's hiring.

Night owls, insomniacs and workers getting off the late shift are about to say goodby to one of the best bedside companions they ever had on network television, Charlie Rose. As host of CBS News' "Nightwatch" for six years, Rose established himself as one of TV's premier interviewers--some would say right up there with Ted Koppel and Larry King--with his comfortable four-hour talk show that is broadcast from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m. and then is repeated from 4 a.m. to 6 a.m.

He's interviewed world leaders, entertainers, literary figures, Nobel Prize winners, athletes and politicians, getting rave reviews for his work. When it comes to asking questions and eliciting information, one on one, the man is tops, the cream, a pro's pro. So . . . . In the wake of his quitting as anchor of "Personalities"--less than two months after the debut of this syndicated series, which he had dubbed "solid, compelling nonfiction television"--what would Charlie Rose ask Charlie Rose?
