1978-Present News Magazine
Created by Roone Arledge, the first episode of 20/20 aired on ABC on June 6th, 1978. 20/20 is an investigative reporting newsmagazine broadcast show which is hosted by veteran investigative journalists. Famous celebrity journalist Barbara Walters joined the cast in 1984, and in 1999 was the lone news anchor until co-host John Miller was added to the team in 2002. In March of 1999 Barbara Walters interviewed Monica Lewinsky, which brought in an estimated 80 million viewers, a record for the show. Today, the episodes are concentrated on one or two important issues, rather than several stories. 20/20’s investigative journalists often go undercover to bring you news reports, and intriguing stories.
