Metro Detroit: Newsmakers April 8, 2006




Detroit News:

Katie Couric's decision to leave NBC's "Today" for the meatier, primetime solo anchor gig at CBS has created a lot of opportunities, and not just for her replacement Meredith Vieira. This is also a time, broadcast experts say, that ABC's No. 2 sunrise show "Good Morning America" could steal the top spot in the ratings. Meanwhile, scuttlebutt is surrounding Vieira's old digs, ABC's "The View," where producers are rumored to be seriously talking to actress Patricia Heaton ("Everybody Loves Raymond") as a possible Vieira replacement... Tomorrow may be brighter for ABC (Sat 4/8)
