Personal Award: Ted Koppel for “Nightline”




Personal Award: Ted Koppel for “Nightline”
Winner 1984 | ABC News

Much television news is a pastiche of short elements fit into a half-hour format. ABC News Nightline, anchored by Ted Koppel, is not a typical news program. Nightline takes the top news story of the day and provides the viewer with an in-depth, comprehensive look at the one event and the issues and personalities behind it. Nightline utilizes state-of-the-art technology to unite newsmakers from around the world, providing a unique opportunity for confrontation, debate, and analysis. Ted Koppel’s hard-hitting, incisive interviewing, give the viewer an hones, upclose, decidedly non-glossy look at the people that are the news. For providing a fuller perspective on the issues that shape our lives, the Peabody Baord recognizes Ted Koppel and Nightline with an award.
