Koppel Exits: Albom Says Thank You

Through the years, Ted Koppel did something exceptional, Mitch Albom writes in a weekend column: “He tried to teach instead of entertain. He broadcast from the Middle East, from the middle of a war, from town meetings across America. He got famous faces from the Dalai Lama to Tammy Faye Baker to face blunt questioning for more than a 20-second sound bite.

He took chances, whether reading the names of dead soldiers in Iraq, or giving a dying professor one last class. And in doing so, Koppel, only one man, touched countless others. Who knows how many people were enlightened or motivated by the subjects ‘Nightline’ covered?”
