The CBS Evening News devoted at least six minutes of airtime to Katie Couric‘s exclusive interview with Karen James, the widow of the mountain climber found dead on Mt. Hood, on Thursday night. It was teased throughout the day on CBS; and it aired again at the top of The Early Show on Friday. The extended interview is available on CBSNews.com.
In today’s Shoptalk, Peter Herford writes: “I learned a lesson from Ms. Couric and the CBS Evening News tonight… My epiphany was to finally realize that I was watching a newscast that has now clearly moved on a path to separate its style from the traditional network news broadcast.”
