As far as the network news broadcasts are concerned, who do you tune in to see? Did you ever wonder how many minutes they log in a year?
Much of the time, the stories the public follows doesn't match what the networks cover. Likewise, the people who bring us these stories are often not the ones the public goes to for said stories.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed the reporters who have logged the most air time in 2011.
First, one sidebar can be noted here. Regis Philbin, who has now exited his chair next to Kelly Ripa, holds the record for the person who has logged more hours on TV than anybody else in the history of television. He beat Hugh Downs, the previous record holder. He did that feat in 2004 and in 2011 he made his exit. Regis and his work is different than reporters, but with Downs the leader before him, who will be next? This record is recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records.
The reporters who fill this list have a long way to go, but, for 2011 they are tops.
- ABC's David Muir gets the top honor with 343 minutes on the air, which included the Regis story of leaving his chair.
- Jake Tapper, also from ABC, came in with 383 minutes.
- NBC's Richard Engle, 246 minutes.
- NBC and Chuck Todd is here with 226 minutes.
- CBS' Nancy Cordes is tied with Todd at 226 minutes.
- Jim Avila from ABC logged 211 minutes.
- ABC's Jonathan Karl, 205 minutes.
- NBC's Tom Costello, 201 minutes.
- Anthony Mason and David Martin from CBS round it out with 198 and 193 minutes, respectively.
They also noted the top news story for the networks news programs of ABC, NBC and CBS, was the death of Libyan leader Moammmar Ghadafi. There was 685 total stories among the Big Three.
