Who will replace Ed Bradley?

Anderson CooperThat's the question the industry is asking today, after the veteran 60 Minutes reporter died of leukemia a couple of weeks ago.

CBS News and Sports President Sean McManus says that he is going to start looking for additional reporters for the Sunday night show after the New Year rolls around, though he doesn't say that they will be "replacements" for Bradley. But people are starting to talk about it anyway, wondering if CBS will get another big name to fill the vacancy. Some are saying it might be CNN's Anderson Cooper, though those rumors about Cooper joing the network (probably as host of The Early Show) have surfaced before. Others are saying Lara Logan or Byron Pitts, though many think it will be somebody who already contributes to 60 Minutes, like Bob Simon or Scott Pelley.

Who do you think should replace Bradley, if anyone? Just a couple of reporters to add to the rotation, or a star to actually say the words at the start, "I'm ______ _______."

I wouldn't mind seeing Christianne Amanpour in the job. she did some pieces for "60 Minutes" in the past when there was an agreement between CBS and CNN and her style of journalism seems to fit the show.

How about Ted Koppel? I miss his POV and excellent journalism . . . 60 minutes would be a natural outlet for his talents.

Les Moonves please call Ted Koppel.

amen, la-di-dah. CBS already has one Channel One alum in Serena Altschul. Isn't that enough?

How about Elizabeth Vargas? Maybe?

Whoops, didn't know she was going to be the 'eventual' anchor of ABC news. See, I should read TV Squad more often.

So disregard my earlier comment.

How about Diane Sawyer? She seems to be in limbo these days at ABC.
