ABC's Anchor Search

Okay, everyone, list your fantasy pick to succeed the late Peter Jennings. My fantasy pick would be Lunchbox, assuming he could adapt his unique JPB-style to newscasting.

But back to reality. ABC should seriously consider going out-of-network and snagging John Seigenthaler from NBC. Seigenthaler has the look, sound, and demeanor of an evening newscast anchor, and from what I've seen, plays most of the news pieces he's done on NBC Nightly News on the weekends pretty much straight down the middle.

And yes, I did offer similar advice to CBS a while back.
