Ted Koppel - Coming to our studio!!!!
This morning I found out that Ted Koppel, a huge American journalist and former anchorman for ABC's Nightline will be coming to our studio tomorrow evening to record for a public radio station in the United States. He was with ABC for 42 years and stepped down from his position with Nightline in November 2005. Following Nightline, Mr. Koppel has taken on a number of roles which span various formats of news media.
He has recently been courted by Al Jazeera to work for their 24-hour English language service that they plan to launch this year.
Needless to say, I'm thrilled beyond belief. I can hardly believe it. I'm sick... want to throw up! ;) First, I really love journalism and this guy is great! I can't wait to meet him, and I'm so excited that our studio - and my husband - will be doing the recording for the story that he's doing on Bahrain.... makes me really wonder what the story will be about. We have no information on that at this time....
This is sooooo exciting!!!!!!
