CBS May Use Multi-Anchor Format
Hmmmm - this is interesting.

Replace Rather with a series of "guest anchors"? Why not just steal an idea from "American Idol" and have "American Anchor" where amateur Cronkite wannabees try their hand at reading the evening news?

I dunno. On the one hand, I don't think I would tune in to see someone as perky as Katie Couric every night, but on the other, I don't want an endless stream of talking heads either. Remember when Regis had to replace Kathy Lee? Ugh. Or when Barbara Walters had an opening on "The View"?

I just don't think CBS has anybody in their stable right now that's ready to step up to the plate. Maybe it's time they did a little cherry picking from another network. I mean, there's always Jon Stewart - right?

    What I'd like to see is news that didn't suck. Not sure that's really down to the anchor(s), though...

    Sorry sweetie - but your idealism is endearing :-)

    Condolences on the inaguration/coronation. I'm too depressed to offer an opinion. Have a glass of Chartreuse - you'll feel better (momentarily at least).
