1976: Reasoner Reveals Walters' New News Role
April 22, 2012  | By Christy Slewinski
 
On April 22, 1976, news anchor Harry Reasoner announced that Barbara Walters would become his ABC Nightly News co-anchor that October. The move made Walters - a morning news anchor with NBC's Today - the first woman to anchor an evening news program. Her million-dollar salary ($500,000 to anchor the news and $500,000 to produce and appear in other ABC programs) also made her TV's highest-paid journalist. (Photo from Audition: A Memoir)
