Bloomberg sign former CNN business anchor for Milken

For Milken Institute Global Conference Bloomberg Television has signed the former CNN business anchor, Willow Bay, as a special correspondent.

The short-term hiring of Ms. Disney chief executive Robert A. Iger’s wife, is bound to renew speculation about a potential pairing between Bloomberg and Disney’s ABC News division. There has been a lot of speculation on the partnership in the television news lately.

U.S. TV operations head for Bloomberg, David Rhodes, said in an interview that “we have relationships with a lot of different networks,” and said Ms. Bay’s stint on the business news channel was not related to it.

“This is about what she’s able to do for us in covering this event. We’re hoping to break some news there and put on some interesting programs,” he said. Mr. Rhodes said that Bloomberg lacked a big presence in Los Angeles, where Ms. Bay lived. “Willow is a smart and engaging talent who is right there in L.A. and familiar with the themes and the people that are going to be at this event,” he said
Since there are possibilities of Bloomberg and ABC partnership, An ABC News spokesman said Wednesday, “we have relationships with lots of news organizations around the world, and our relationship with Bloomberg is no different than any of those.

“One of our goals is to bring Bloomberg viewers inside this conference and give them a sense of not only the substance, of which there will be plenty, but also the flavor of the event,” said Ms. Bay.

Californians offered millions in fed. Rebate dollars for energy efficient appliances

Californians are being offered millions in federal rebate dollars to buy energy-efficient appliances. They will have to act fast to get mail-in rebates on energy-efficient appliances provided by the latest federal stimulus program.

The rebate program is part of a federal stimulus program created by the Obama administration last year, but each state is distributing the money according to its own rules. In California, the Energy Commission is administering the rebates.

Texas and Florida launched their programs earlier this month and each burned through their allotment of vouchers in less than two days. Consumers made reservations for rebate vouchers online or on the phone. "Since this is a first-come, first-served program, we're suggesting that consumers act quickly," said California Energy Commission spokesman Adam Gottlieb
Energy Commission spokeswoman Susanne Garfield said “if consumers combine rebates from local utilities they can zero out the cost of a new air conditioner, then watch their power bills shrink over the summer”.

"It's not enough for it to have an Energy Star sticker, it has to meet the California standards which are stricter," she said. "With the rebate on top of that, it's not a bad price," she said. "Ours is 10 years old and it doesn't dry clothes so well anymore. Getting rid of it goes both ways we're helping the environment and we get money back too. Her husband Jorge said. "I didn't even know we were in the market, But she did the research and she says it's the right time to buy.
