Charlie will be missed but I think Diane will be a great replacement.

I think Diane Sawyer is the best choice to replace Gibson.

Sorry for my ignorance, I'm a youngin', but how did being a news anchor destroy Connie Chung and Barbara Walters?

Hi Nik,

I think the article's referring to Connie Chung being ousted as CBS Evening News co-anchor, pretty much dumped entirely by the network, and having Dan Rather go it alone as the solo news anchor. Chung pretty loudly protested this.

Meanwhile, Barbara Walters was a co-anchor on ABC News with Dan Reasoner, who didn't like working with her. He was pretty disdainful of her, even on the air.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
