First there are the blond-haired good looks: striking but somehow wholesome, more high school prom queen than Hollywood glamour puss. Then there’s the rich, honeyed voice: husky and authoritative, but free of the severe tone affected by some females in TV news.

Diane Sawyer doesn’t just deliver the news, she performs it.
