TV news wrapped 2013 with end-of-year review shows featuring signature moments, and TVNewser asked some of broadcast and cable news’ biggest stars what their top stories of last year were.
“GMA’s” Ginger Zee picked two: her adventure feeding vultures while paragliding in Nepal, and covering the death of one of her mentors, storm chaser Tim Samaras.
“CBS This Morning’s” Gayle King picked both a serious and more light-hearted story:
“It’s hard to call the death of Nelson Mandela a favorite story, but it was an honor to be able to attend his funeral and burial services and share it with the CBS audience,” King said. Dishing about legendary actress Shirley MacLaine’s personal life was also a highlight for King:
“I was curious about her love life. She’s happily single, so I asked her if booty calls and friends with benefits were an option these days. Her response: ‘What the hell are you talking about?’ We all cracked up over that one. Thank you Shirley!”
