Good Night, Ted
Meet the new generation of Nightline

Martin Bashir, Cynthia McFadden and Terry Moran

This week Ted Koppel signed off of ABC's Nightline for the final time. Starting Monday the torch will be passed to a new generation of anchors for the respected late-night news show: White House correspondent Terry Moran, Primetime's Cynthia McFadden, and Martin Bashir, the British TV journalist who made his name in the U.S. with his explosive 2003 documentary about troubled pop superstar Michael Jackson. So what will the new Nightline look like? The Biz asked executive producer James Goldston. In recent years, Nightline has often been taped earlier in the evening, but you're going to be live every night.

For me, that means doing it live. Why wouldn't a show like this be live? read more

Premise: A weekly newsmagazine addressing political, social and cultural issues. In its original format, hosts Sam Donaldson and Diane Sawyer bantered before a studio audience, but it flopped and producers quickly adopted a straight-news approach. ABC merged it with '20/20' in 1999, but revived it in 2001, and later offered editions devoted to medical mysteries and 'outsiders' (2006), crime and 'family secrets' (2007), and how people react in unusual situations ('Primetime: What Would You Do?' 2008).
