When ABC was bought by Disney in the mid-'90s, the lyrics of the World News Now Theme Song were slightly altered. Originally "Who cares what the network says / or the sponsors too", the line was changed to "Who cares what the network says / They're a Goofy crew". See more »
I used to watch World News Now back in the glory days of Anderson Cooper, Juju Chang and, I think, Elizabeth Vargas (all of whom have gone on to bigger and better things, and deservedly so.) The chemistry was great and the attitude was massively laid-back, partly from an understanding that the pre-5AM news-viewing crowd might at any moment be measured in hundreds or thousands of viewers, not millions. A highlight of the week was the World News Polka every Friday. This show was part of my morning wake-up and exercise routine. Unfortunately, local news decided to occupy the 5 AM slot a few years ago, so this is just a fond memory for me now.
