I have lost countless hours of sleep in the middle of the night, waiting to hear Melissa McDermott on CBS UTTM... Meg Oliver is cool, but not the same. I told CBS previously that she should take over the post vacated by Dan Rather. Today, I hear that Katie Couric from NBC got it. Fine; BUT WHERE IS MY FAVORITE JOURNALIST: Melissa McDermott? She has disappeared from radar screens ......
I thought I liked Les Moonves; but he does not believe in promoting from within. Even if the choice for the evening news was not Melissa, the person should have been from CBS. I know that it is all ratings-based ($$$$) but there is such a thing as company loyalty, viewer loyalty and the like. I am 48 years old and a lifelong CBS enthusiast and have consistently all my life promoted CBS News and their entertainment programming to my friends and co-workers. I did it WITHOUT being paid. Guess what? I am now going to watch Elizabeth Vargas on ABC World News, and ALL of their other shows! (I don't have cable)
