“The most important TV event of this year was the extensive news coverage by the broadcast networks and local TV stations of the war in Iraq. In many ways the concept and practice of embedding journalists with our troops had an enormous impact on viewers and their perceptions of the war.”
Anthony Spirito, director of programming, Katz Television Group

Roberta Gonzales, weather anchor, KPIX-TV (CBS), San Francisco
