If I end up hosting 'Joker's Wild,' please shoot me.
I think the notion of traditional anchor is fading away - the all-knowing, all-seeing person who speaks from on high. I don't think the audience really buys that anymore. As a viewer, I know I don't buy it.
Anyone who says they're not afraid at the time of a hurricane is either a fool or a liar, or a little bit of both.
I don't have much experience, but the few times when I would go on a date with a girl - like when I was 12 - there was a lot of sharing, and a lot of talking, and a lot of asking how I am. They thought we were dating, and I was sort of hoping to meet their brothers.
If I'm hip, we've got a problem in this country. I really shouldn't be held up as any model of hipness. If anything, I think I'm sort of old school in my approach to objective reporting and not wearing my opinion on my sleeve. There's a lot of that in American TV news these days. Too much, in fact.
If you feel like an outsider, you tend to observe things a lot more.
Anyone who has experienced a certain amount of loss in their life has empathy for those who have experienced loss.
I think you have to be yourself, and you have to be real and you have to admit what you don't know, and talk about what you do know, and talk about what you don't know as long as you say you don't know it.
That's the thing about suicide. Try as you might to remember how a person lived his life, you always end up thinking about how he ended it.
The whole celebrity culture thing - I'm fascinated by, and repelled by, and yet I end up knowing about it.
The fact is, I'm gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn't be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud.
A lot of compelling stories in the world aren't being told, and the fact that people don't know about them compounds the suffering.
I can begin to understand how anchor monsters are made. If you're not careful, you can become used to being treated as though you're special and begin to expect it.
The world reacts very strangely to people they see on TV, and I can begin to understand how anchor monsters are made. If you're not careful, you can become used to being treated as though you're special and begin to expect it. For a reporter, that's the kiss of death.
If you learn the language of loss early, I think you seek out others who have experienced the same thing, who speak that same language of loss.
