I am catching up on this one. But in case you missed it, here's video from Sunday of CNN's "Reliable Sources" with host Howard Kurtz leading a discussion on the resignation of David Westin as president of ABC News -- and the future of the genre that 21 million Americans still turn to each night.
I'm on the panel along with Andrew Heyward, former president of CBS News, and Marissa Guthrie, editor at "Broadcasting & Cable."
Check it out.
Heyward is the guy who in the 1990s figured out how to use prime-time newsmagazines to help underwrite the evening news -- an incredibly savvy way to serve corporate demands for a certain profit margin without drastically downsizing the news division. Guthrie is one of the best reporters anywhere in covering the TV news industry.
