Doogie. Boy wonder. Whiz kid. Jeff Zucker, NBC News' 27-year-old perpetual motion machine, keeps waiting for the fuss to go away. "I don't know if 30 will be the magic age when I stop being referred to as a whiz kid or if it will be part of my life forever," he says. "I understand I've done a lot and I'm really young. Quite frankly, in the last couple of weeks, it's even raised my eyebrows. " Next Monday, Zucker will begin an unprecedented daily double in the cutthroat world of network TV news.

When Tom Brokaw stares into the camera later this month on "NBC Nightly News," there won't be anyone behind the camera looking back. Later this month, NBC becomes the first network to replace its camera operators with robotic cameras. The three studio cameras on "NBC Nightly News" will be controlled by a production director operating a computer that will activate fully automated equipment. "If everything works right, the viewers shouldn't notice any differences," said Tom Wolzien, vice president of editorial production services for NBC. The cameras look like conventional studio equipment, but will maneuver around the studio on a track.

Now that West 57th is finally in the 10 p.m. time slot for which it was designed, does the high-tech CBS news magazine have a real future with the network? "West 57th is a very, very good broadcast," said CBS News president Van Gordon Sauter last week during a stop in Philadelphia. "If it's ever in the right slot, it will find an audience. I think there's a future for it, but it's a matter of how it performs over the next few weeks. " In its debut in the slot last Wednesday, West 57th managed an 8.5 rating and 16 percent audience share.

It won't be "The Tom and Jane Show," after all. Despite rumors to the contrary, Tom Brokaw says he has decided not to join Jane Pauley this summer on NBC's proposed magazine show, the news division's 16th attempt at launching such a program over the last two decades. (No. 15, you'll recall, was last fall's "Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow," which has now been turned over to NBC's entertainment wing for retooling and recasting.) "I did consider it," Brokaw said Tuesday. "But, for the time being, I've got my plate full.

TRUE STORY: Brian Williams had a terrible Thursday. Wednesday, the "NBC Nightly News" anchor apologized for a dozen-year-old story he's been telling. It went something like this, and I paraphrase: "In 2003, I was in Iraq aboard an Army helicopter hit by rockets. " Thing is, he wasn't. Williams was on a Chinook. RPG fire was nearby. But the rockets hit a copter flying 30 to 60 minutes ahead of the one the veteran newsguy was in, according to Stars and Stripes . Whoops.

Lolo Jones, as photogenic as she is physically gifted, may be the perfect representative of the Olympics' schizophrenic nature. If the Games' two personalities, that of an international sporting competition and a TV-entertainment spectacle, are increasingly indistinguishable, then so is Jones' role within them. After two Summer Olympics disappointments as a hurdler, Jones will return to the five-ring spotlight as a bobsledder when the 2014 Winter Games begin Friday in Sochi. And because she occupies that shadowland between athlete and TV attraction, the controversy her balancing act so often arouses is back as well.

The national media descended on the Criminal Justice Center in Philadelphia last week, shamed into covering the murder trial of Kermit Gosnell by a misplaced sense of obligation. That arrival was compelled by a newspaper column written in USA Today by Kirsten Powers, who insinuated that the case was being ignored because of bias. "Let me state the obvious," Powers wrote. "This should be front-page news. When Rush Limbaugh attacked Sandra Fluke, there was nonstop media hysteria. The venerable NBC Nightly News ' Brian Williams intoned, 'A firestorm of outrage from women after a crude tirade from Rush Limbaugh,' as he teased a segment on the brouhaha.

We asked what characteristics readers were looking for in a news anchor, and whether Katie Couric, in her new role on "CBS Evening News," fit the bill. Bruce Corwin Riegelsville corwinbruce@aol.com The question isn't whether Katie Couric is qualified for the evening news, but whether the evening news is qualified for Katie Couric. Couric's got the whole package. She has delivered plenty of grim news and never giggled through it. Bryant Gumbel and Matt Lauer have worn many an apron, but no one would doubt whether they could report on Iraqi car bombings at 6:30 p.m. instead of 7:30 a.m. I question whether the ailing medium of evening news is worth her time and talent.
