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.

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.

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.

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.

Radio and TV host Glenn Beck likes to talk about the potential collapse of the American economy. He also likes to talk about buying gold as a hedge against the unknown. The proximity of those ideas, the plethora of gold ads around his Fox program and Beck's work as a paid pitchman for one gold firm have some in the media wondering whether the conservative commentator has a conflict of interest. Since conflicts are in the eye of the beholder, Beck should consider himself lucky if the public doesn't judge him by the where-there's-smoke-there's-fire standard he uses to condemn his own adversaries.

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.
