    Fritz Henderson, the new CEO of General Motors, headlines both NBC’s “Meet the Press” and CNN’s “State of the Union.”

    A week after his predecessor was ousted by the Obama administration, new General Motors CEO Fritz Henderson will try to outline his company’s turnaround on this week’s Sunday talk shows.

    Henderson headlines both NBC’s “Meet the Press” and CNN’s “State of the Union.” Additionally, CNN interviews Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), former General Electric CEO Jack Welch – and has as its “Last Word” guest senior White House adviser David Axelrod.

    After his debut on the Sunday shows last week, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is back, sitting down with host Bob Schieffer on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

    And with the President Barack Obama still in Europe, Axelrod also appears on “Fox News Sunday” to discuss the weeklong presidential trip abroad and other pressing issues back home.

    He’ll be countered by South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, a Republican, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.).

    Fox rounds out its morning with a roundtable of the Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol, National Public Radio’s Mara Liasson, National Review’s Rich Lowry and POLITICO’s Jim VandeHei. And Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), who privately fought breast cancer, is named “Player of the Week.”

    On Bloomberg TV, host Al Hunt interviews Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) on “Political Capital.”

    Finally, C-SPAN’s “Newsmakers” hosts Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson, who’ll be questioned by the Greenwire’s Robin Bravender and The Washington Post’s Juliet Eilperin.
