Throughout the 1960s and early 1970s, ABC News wasn't a major news player compared to
CBS Newsand NBC News. It wasn't until Roone Arledgebecame the President of ABC News in 1977that the network finally became a major player in news. Arledge, known for experimenting with the broadcast "model," created many of ABC News' most popular and enduring programs, including " 20/20", "World News Tonight", "This Week", "Nightline", and " Primetime Live".
ABC News gained respect in the early 1980s by covering the Iran Hostage Crisis and, later, for covering the 1989
Loma Prieta earthquakein the San Francisco Bay Arealive.
Arledge turned ABC News into a broadcasting titan, regularly defeating rivals NBC and CBS. ABC would remain dominant for over two decades.
ABC News' slogan, "More Americans get their news from ABC News than from any other source", refers to the number of people who watch, listen, and read to ABC News programming on television, radio, and the Internet.
