ABCNews.com has posted a transcript of Charlie Gibson‘s goodbye at the end of GMA:
| And so this wonderful 19-year experience of a lifetime comes to an end.
I’ve always believed this to be the best-named broadcast in the history of television.
And I’ve always said we broadcast at an hour you wouldn’t have your best friend into the house.
The dishes aren’t done, the beds aren’t made, the kids are at their wildest â€” but you let us come into your homes and treat us like friends.
We share your breakfast table each day. That is always so important to us; but never more so than when we went through the national agony of 9/11 or the long trial of picking a president in the year 2000.
I will miss our breakfast conversations, more than I can adequately say. And I will miss the folks who work on this broadcast — on air and off.
