    Koppel didn't have a monopoly on smug -- and Nightline was hugely successful. I'm too young to remember what abbott is referencing with Carter, but I would bet that made Koppel powerful. Wouldn't have weakened him. I remember when they found Imelda Marcos's shoe closet. That was a huge story.

    Cable changed it for sure, but people were still making a ton of cash. What's really changed it is how millennials consume news. Twitter, Instastories, Facebook Live and whatever is coming next will end the days of multiple high-salaried anchors. Some will still cash in, but the percentage will be lower.

    I think our market is in the high 90s/low 100s. The main anchors at the two top stations have both been there for 30-plus years, they just rotate female co-anchors in with them. The chief mets have each been there 20-plus. And based on their houses and vehicles, they are doing very well for themselves.
