V&W: Woodruff Faces “Sudden Fame,” Including Front Page Of The Tehran News

By Brian 

Gail Shister reports: Bob Woodruff, “formerly a household name only in his own household, experienced his first brush with celebrity in Tehran last week.

‘There was a front-page article in the Tehran News that ABC would be reporting from here,’ he says from Iran’s capital. ‘I’ve never been on the front page of a newspaper before.’

After almost a decade at ABC, Woodruff says his sudden fame ‘is a little uncomfortable. I also understand that it comes with the territory.’

It doesn’t bother him that most Americans couldn’t pick him out of a lineup, he insists.

‘Personally, I don’t think this job is about how well known you are. That’s something that just happens. Whether you’re well received is another story.'”
