Bob Woodruff‘s home state paper, the Detroit Free Press, previews his ascendancy to the WNT anchor chair in Friday editions.
|As Woodruff prepares for his debut week, he stresses that nothing about “World News Tonight” is going to be formulaic, including his new job.|
“I think we almost need a new word for it, other than anchor,” says Woodruff. “I think it’s going to be much more of a reporting kind of job, in terms of being out in the world. And it’s certainly going to be a job that requires broadcasting on new and different platforms.”
Does he have a new word in mind? “No, I’ll leave that up to you guys,” he says with a laugh.
