Seattle Times, United States - Aaron Brown, the former CNN anchor, is joining the PBS series "Wide Angle," ending his on-air absence of more than two years.

Friday on "20/20," John Stossel interviews Huffington about her political transformation and confronts her about her contention that government programs are the solution to society's problems.

CNN's Cooper Got Start Covering Wars
Springdale Morning News - Springdale, AR, USA - Anderson Cooper never wanted to be a news anchor.

"It's not anything I ever actually set out to become. It's actually something I used to make fun of," Cooper said. "I grew up watching Guy Smiley on Sesame Street and Kent Brockman on the Simpsons. That was sort of my idea of what an anchor was."

The host of CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360" didn't know what he wanted to do after graduating from Yale, but a high school trip through Africa had shown him the world outside the United States.

"I had a liberal arts degree, which means I had no actual skill,"

So, What's The (Big) Story With John Gibson?

However, Anderson Cooper doesn't get tired of doing the same story, even months after reporting it.

"It's fascinating. The fact that all people who are illegibly experts have no idea what

Nightly news: New anchors away!
USA Today - USA - Ask ABC World News anchor Charles Gibson why he has become the nation's most-watched TV news anchor, and he grins.

"Unbridled sex appeal," he says.

Gibson is kidding, of course. But after the tumultuous year since the Tom Brokaw/Peter Jennings/Dan Rather era ended, his reason might be as good as any as to why the race among him, NBC's Brian Williams and CBS' Katie Couric has played out the way it has.

The contest began last Labor Day with Couric's much-heralded arrival at the CBS Evening News. The former Today star and the man who hired her — CBS CEO Leslie Moonves
