BBC gives Ted Koppel new gig

The Independent of London got my chuckle when talking about former ABC News heavyweight Ted Koppel's joining BBC. The newspaper said after Koppel left ABC (ditched actually, because what TV viewer wants news?), he wound up doing commentary on NPR, "America's pale imitation of the BBC."

Ole NPR is the best we have, but I couldn't agree more that it a pale imitation. KSFR, after all, teamed up with BBC, not NPR.

More from the Independent about Koppel.
