Ted Koppel, who has anchored ABC News’”Nightline” since its inception a quarter-century ago, said Thursday he will leave the network when his contract expires at the end of the year.
When does Letterman’s current contract expire? Will they move Kimmel up? Or will they stick with news?
Honestly, I don’t think they’ll stick with news much past Koppel’s departure. They might try it for a short time, but the miniscule ratings will drop and they’ll need to try something different.
I suspect we’ll finally see an 11:35 ABC late night talk show by this time next year.
