Mankiewicz Named TCM Weekend Host

Turner Classic Movies has gone for a host with great Hollywood

Ben Mankiewicz -- who leads The Young Turks on Sirius Satellite Radio
Inc. and newsmagazine show The Times for WAMI-TV in Miami -- will become
the vintage-film network’s weekend daytime host in September.

Mankiewicz should know from whence he talks: He’s the grandson and
grandnephew of Herman and Joseph L. Mankiewicz, who, between them, wrote and
directed All About Eve, Guys and Dolls, The Pride of the
, Dinner at Eight and Cleopatra.
