CREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE Fri.,Feb.27, I Nessen on 'Saturday Night' by THOMAS JOSEPH By JAY S1IARBUTT AP Television Writer NEW YORK (AP) - On Jan. 10, Mrs. Gerald Ford had a bit part on CBS 1 "Mary Tyler Moore" show. Come April 17, another major figure in the Ford White House -- Ron Nessen - will go her one better, donning the greasepaint to star in a satirical NBC show thai often pokes fun at his boss. Nessen, who gave up his NBC News job to become President Ford's chief spokesman, will be doing a one-shot gig as guest host of his old network's new and rowdy "Saturday Night" proceedings. And, says Lome Michaels, the young producer of the proceedings, the White House press secretary will appear in some skits and probably be doing a few political gags provided by the show's staff. Who suggested he appear on the show -- Nessen himself or Michaels? "Well, it was a combination of both," the 31-year-old producer said. "We heard after Buck Henry's program that there'd been a request from the White House for a casette of ihe show." In that caper, aired Jan. 17, Henry, a comedy writer and actor, portrayed Nessen at a news conference. Michaels said the White House request "piqued our interest, because we'd been getting some flak from NBC ... there seemed to be some feeling that we were only hitting Ford and Reagan, hitting only Republicans." Later, he said, "Saturday Njght" writer Al Franken bumped into Nessen in New Hampshire during Ford's campaign there and introduced himself as a writer on the show. He said Nessen told the scribe that "he and a great many people around the White House had st«n the Henry show, had played it quite often and thought it was quite funny," so Franken asked him about appearing on it. Then, Michaels continued, Nessen "called me about two weeks ago and we began talks about him doing an appearance on the show and it evolved into his hosting a show." Oddly enough, Michaels said, when he proposed the idea to NBC officials, they seemed apprehensive about it "because they felt perhaps the show was tilting Republican or something like that.
