LEGEND: Ted Koppel broke new ground as anchor and managing editor of television's first late-night network news program, "Nightline." There he brought his hallmark cool intelligence and perspective to the discussion of the most important news stories of the day. Over five decades covering 10 wars and every political convention since 1964, Koppel has won every prestigious broadcasting award, including 41 Emmys, and has interviewed the world's leading political and cultural figures including Gen. Colin Powell, Nelson Mandela, Hillary Clinton and Muhammad Ali.

THE LEGEND CONTINUES: After 45 years in journalism including 25 years with "Nightline," Koppel has taken on a new challenge: managing editor for The Discovery Channel -- producing a series of long-form programs that provide in-depth reporting which give viewers insight and the ability to form their own opinions on important global issues. He also serves as a contributing columnist for The New York Times and provides regular commentary on National Public Radio. To these new forums Koppel brings his unique gift for getting to the heart of the moral, legal or ethical friction in any situation.

IN PERSON: Koppel is a superb story-teller; the San Francisco Chronicle said he "really knows how to craft a picture in words." Nowhere is that skill more evident than in his live presentations where he entertains and enlightens audiences with personal anecdotes, insights and humor that help give a rare glimpse into the substantive issues of the day.
