Top News Executives Meet With Trump Over Coverage

Monday, 21 November 2016 02:16 PM

Top executives and anchors from the nation's TV-news outlets met with President-elect Donald Trump Monday afternoon as questions loom over how much access his team will grant to journalists during his term as the leader of the United States, The Huffington Post reports.

The meeting will offer a chance for the the people who run of some of the most-watched independent news sources in America to open a dialogue with Trump and express interest in coverage, according to four people familiar with the meeting.

Bill Shine and Jack Abernethy, co-presidents of Fox News Channel are expected to attend, according to one of these people, along with Andy Lack, chairman of NBC News and MSNBC; Deborah Turness, president of NBC News; Jeff Zucker, president of CNN Worldwide; James Goldston, president of ABC News; and Phil Griffin, president of MSNBC. David Rhodes, president of CBS News, was unable to be present, these people said. It was not immediately clear when the meeting was organized, but some news executives are expected to be on vacation this week due to the coming Thanksgiving holiday.

The meeting was organized by officials with the Trump transition team, these people said. A separate meeting with top executives from print media is expected and could take place as soon as Tuesday, according to one of these people.
