Deborah Norville: ‘I Don’t Think Anybody Tunes in to a Broadcast Because it’s a Chick Anchoring It or a Guy Anchoring It’

We headed out to Michael’s last night for a party for Deborah Norville‘s new book “The Power of Respect.” In the room, “60 Minutes” EP Jeff Fager, “48 Hours” EP Susan Zirinsky, CBS News anchor Russ Mitchell, CNN/U.S. president Jon Klein and correspondent Alina Cho and other tvnewers. Even Wonder Woman Linda Carter was on hand.

The “Inside Edition” anchor told the crowd, “Thanks to Kanye and Serena and Rep. Wilson we’re all learning how important respect is, and why so much of it is lacking today.”

Norville snuck away from the party to talk with us about the book, the current state of TV News and whether she’s talked to ABC about a certain anchor job opening up soon:

After the jump, our full interview with Norville including the staying power of “Inside Edition” and her aim in writing “The Power of Respect,” her sixth book.
