The Most Popular “Evening-News Animal”

By Brian 

Kudos to this illustration of the evening news wars in today’s Observer. Rebecca Dana‘s piece, titled “Life of Brian,” is a must-read. NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams characterizes himself as an “evening-news animal.” I love this excerpt:

“He also watches episodes of The Office on his video iPod, which is one of his few concessions to the modern era. Mr. Williams has taken a shine to blogging. He is cottoning to vlogging. He looks forward to a technological future, for which he and NBC believe themselves to be well equipped.”

“Someone told me the next-generation iPod is going to have live-broadcast capability,” he said. “I always keep saying, ‘Are we gonna just call it a radio at that point?'”
