You omitted that Dandy Don also did a short – VERY short – stint as co-host for ABC’s Good Morning America, much to the chagrin of affiliates who had to field questions from viewers, basically saying WTF? Who the heck is THIS dude? Don’s a good reporter and OK anchor, but no Charlie Gibson or Harry Smith.
