Koppel to Get This Week?

ABC News wants Ted Koppel, who worked for the network for 42 years, to anchor This Week three Sundays a month, and has offered him $1 million per year, Politico reports. Potential future anchors from ABC's Washington bureau would take turns anchoring the fourth Sunday's show. Koppel hasn't signed the deal yet, though, and the fact that his longtime producer, Tom Bettag, is not part of the arrangement could prove to be a sticking point for Koppel, who is currently managing editor at the Discovery Channel. The This Week job opened after Charlie Gibson's exit from World News created a power vacuum, with Diane Sawyer leaving Good Morning America to fill his slot, and George Stephanopoulos leaving This Week for GMA.
