Koppel's Last Nightline
I just got around to watching the final episode of Nightline by Ted Koppel and his team — it’s now transitioned to a new multi-anchor format. For their last show, Koppel & Co. revisited their interviews with Morrie Schwartz, the dying Brandeis professor who wanted to talk about death on TV. Mitch Albom saw the original interview — and of course we all know what happened after that.
But the final episode was grand, and so is Koppel’s style and the Nightline tradition. I’ll miss it.
