How about Dan Rather? He's got nothing to do...

Nightline was (and this might be damnation with faint praise) the best network news/analysis show for the last 10 years. I can think of 5 shows off the top of my head that were sober and relatively objective.

They'll kill Nightline. And Koppel is entirely too old for the Dan Rather gig (according to the Wizard of News folks who think we need our news to be read by folks with shiny plastic hair. Lil Bobby Sheiffer is just a temp. replacement)

Ken beat me to the punch. Even if Koppel were younger, he wouldn't want any Evening/Nightly/World News job. He has the power to kill Nightline, but he doesn't have the power to kill the evening news.

This is not really a news item. Koppel will be replaced with another liberal. We all know this.
