Koppel Exits: Comments From Critics

By Brian 

> Frazier Moore: “A star was born at 40…”

> Virginia Rohan: “In a pizazz-filled world, what Koppel gave us was invaluable.”

> Verne Gay: “And, so, little wonder that before he leaves ABC and the show he founded, a touch of elegy and even eulogy must creep into appreciations like this. Koppel will soon be gone. Network TV will never be the same, nor certainly will “Nightline.” How could they be?”

> Alan Pergament: “He may be viewed as a news dinosaur by even some admirers, but we’d be fortunate if many of the next generation of journalists had a kernel of his DNA.”

> Chuck Barney: “Nightline is dead. Long live Nightline.”
