Ted Koppel Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

After leaving “Nightline”, Koppel worked as managing editor for the Discovery Channel before stepping down in 2008. Koppel is now a senior news analyst for National Public Radio and giving analyst to “BBC World News America”, and gives to NBC News.

On November 22, 2005, Koppel stepped down from Nightline after 25 years using the program and left ABC after 42 years together with the network. His closing Nightline program failed to feature clips highlighting memorable interviews and well-known moments from his tenure as host, as is typical when an anchorman retires. With this program, Koppel interviewed sports journalist Mitch Albom, who’d been a scholar of Schwartz. Albom talked about the way in which the Nightline interviews directed and inspired him into contacting Schwartz personally, and then seeing him weekly. These visits became the foundation for the favorite novel Tuesdays with Morrie, chronicling lessons about life learned from Schwartz. While at Discovery Koppel produced several long documentaries on various areas including a 2008 four-hour miniseries on China, which Koppel “ranks with a few of the task that [he’s] most proud of over recent years.” The four-part documentary, known as The People’s Republic of Capitalism, is an wide-ranging look in the quick-changing state. It takes a look at the function of Chinese consumers in the growing -but yet communist- market.
