So today…I’m not going to talk about Halle Berry’s latest pregnancy (but Bravo, girl!) nor whether Jennifer Aniston lost Bradley Cooper to Renee Zellweger (did she or didn’t she?). Rather, let’s talk news, as in Evening News. Because it seems that beloved ABC News Anchor Charlie Gibson is stepping down, after maintaining a level of true excellence (and ratings wins) for a number of years now. So who’s stepping in for Mr. Gibson? The lovely Diane Sawyer, whom we’ve all come to love from Good Morning America. Not that GMA is her only accomplishment by a long shot. The lady has a very long and distinguished career, and in fact was THE first woman to co-anchor the Sunday Night News Behemoth, 60 minutes.
So now, this extraordinary and classy 63 year old will be delivering headlines at night.
Which means we have — in the Nightly News shows — two, count ‘em: two ladies — at the helm of Big Big News Programs. Diane Sawyer and Katie Couric — with Brian Williams snappily sandwiched in the middle. So my question for you all is this: who will you watch? I guess I should ask first: do you watch news at night in the first place? And then IF you’re one of those folks who do, will the Gibson Exit/Sawyer Entrance change the news you watch? Will you tune in just to compare & contrast the ladies and then go back to CNN or Fox?Voice your choice in today’s featured poll.
Which nightly news broadcast will you watch?
1) Diane Sawyer (ABC)
2) Brian Williams (NBC)
3) Katie Couric (CBS)
