"I was dorky longer than I care to remember." --Diane Sawyer in Los Angeles Times, August 7, 1994.
"Diane Sawyer is one of a handful of people in TV news--like Peter Jennings, Ted Koppel or Barbara Walters--who are able to make or break a franchise in news. Diane can do newsmagazines. She can do hard news. She's intelligent. She's a personality. She is someone whose presence on a news program makes a difference. It's like putting Michael Jordon into the game. You want to watch what she does." --Roone Arledge, president ABC News, in Los Angeles Times, August 7, 1994.
"It's all about balance and proportion. I do about 40 pieces a year on 'PrimeTime' and 90 percent of them are a serious investigation of issues that can affect people's lives. I think critics tend to remember the 'tabloid-style' stories more than the work that we spend most of our time on." --Sawyer in Los Angeles Times, August 7, 1994.
"She is the kindest, smartest, most beautiful woman I've known. I love her entirely." --Mike Nichols
Sawyer was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame in 1997.
