The number one six-o’clock news program is now on ABC with Charlie Gibson. There were many great news anchors: Walter Cronkite, Peter Jennings, Chet Huntley, David Brinkley, Tom Brokaw (to name the ones that come to my mind). And I think Charlie Gibson will be added to these names. He brings the most humanly connected broadcast that is possible on TV. You feel as if he’s one of the viewers, with the luck of actually being there among the newsmakers. At first it was “Charles,” but he was for the feet on the ground is not easy to "Charlie".
His start in Good Morning America in 1987 has brought a relaxed atmosphere, with it came the news. This has not reduced the severity of the mission. Charlie Gibson's travels around the country and the world around us, the best point of view of events. In fact, I have often wondered if he had given the many hours he sleeps on the air. His strength is incredible!
The best debate with all candidates in this year was the only Mr. Gibsonmoderated. After the Republican debate and before the Democratic one, all the contenders were on the stage together. His hope seemed to let the viewers see that these are just people that happen to be in the national spotlight.
People who are a part of the broadcast appear quite comfortable with Charlie. I have watched interviews where he did make the person squirm with hard questions, but only because he or she deserved to. There’s only one thing I wish he would change. His closing is, “I hope you had a good day, and we hope you have a good night.” That is so terribly corny, even for a Charlie.
