What it means when Jane Pauley anchors Newtwork News
I was told Jane Pauley guest anchored the CBS Evening News the other night. I wish I had been there to witness it. Nightly anchors tend to be men, and some are over sixty, but aside from Diane Sawyer and Judy Woodruff, it is not often we see a woman of that age delivering the news.
Some would say that we are witnessing the decline of news on television. But I prefer to think of it as simply a great decision on the part of the suits at CBS.
A seasoned journalist who happens to be a woman and who is “of-a-certain-age” delivering the news: what a concept.
