ted koppel over & out!
November 22, 2005 MICHAEL KNUDSEN

oh i love that ted koppel – this 42 year veteran of ABC News is hosting his last nightline tonight after 25 years! i actually really enjoy nightline – and watch it for the most part every night – always packed with intense & very relevant stories – it’s so the perfect extension to the local news at 11pm (and i only do local news ABC style – i love michelle tuzee and marc brown) – plus ted was always the great host – intelligent & warm – i will for sure miss him from the show – they are going to cotinue nightline (starting nov 28th) with three ‘co-anchors’ – martin bashir, cynthia mcfadden, and terry moran – so no worries – the show will go on – although it won’t be the same without ted but i do expect the same great stories & news as always! rock on – and good luck to mr. koppel! xxoo

Building on the great legacy of ‘Nightline’ as we go forward to the next era is both a challenge and an exciting opportunity. Cynthia McFadden, Martin Bashir, and Terry Moran bring the combination of intelligence, experience, and perspective that can ensure that Nightline’s future is every bit as bright as its past… – David Westin (President ABC News)
