A short, frothy interview in Editor & Publisher posted online yesterday revealed that Nightline host Ted Koppel, one of the leading TV journalists of the past three decades and a master of the substantive political interview, is seriously considering a move to Sirius radio -- or XM.

When asked "what's next" for his career now that Nightline is coming to an end, he replied: "I've been watching with great interest the fact that Howard Stern got $500 million for a five-year contract, and it does open all kinds of new possibilities." Stern's contract is with Sirius.
