ON THE EDIT ROOM FLOOR: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers during his weekly radio show on WAUK-AM Milwaukee admitted that he was “startled by his nearly 12-minute segment,” which aired Sunday on CBS’ “60 Minutes.” In Green Bay, Weston Hodkiewicz noted what Rodgers found “most disappointing was how the program chose to not include hardly any footage from his MACC Fund event in May that they’d followed him to.” Rodgers said, “I just felt like the editing of the piece could have been done in a way that was maybe a lot more respectful of myself. If I’m sensitive about anything throughout the whole process, they come to the MACC Fund event in May, which is very important to me and even more important considering the two boys that we lost this year to cancer” (GREENBAYPRESSGAZETTE.com, 11/6).
COMING TO YOU LIVE: The HOLLYWOOD REPORTER’s Etan Vlessing reported the CBC “has chosen former MTV Canada production head Mark McInnis and Chris Irwin to mastermind its 2014 Olympic Winter Games coverage.” McInnis comes over to the CBC “from rival broadcaster Bell Media, where he was vp of production for the Much/MTV group of cable channels.” He will produce “live event programming for the CBC's TV network to get Canadians ready for the 2014 Oympics.” Irwin, who “helped stickhandle the CBC's Olympic coverage between 1996 and 2008, will oversee live programming during the Sochi Games” (HOLLYWOODREPORTER.com, 11/6).
