In 1983, Itʹs “Just One of Those Things” as “NBC News Overnight” makes its final broadcast. Before the credits roll, the anchors have their final say. Bill Schechter: “Time for last words, for the last time. My turn first. Two important things happened here. One, it seems clear that you there and we here broke the barrier of the medium that connects us. We involved each other in the ideas that were this program. We showed there is more than one way to send and receive the news. The experiment succeeded. Will the technique spread? Let us all hope. Well, thatʹs business. Letʹs talk about life. We were not afraid of each otherʹs successes in here. When one of us grew, it did not mean that another had to shrink. There was plenty of room. The producers, editors, researchers, technicians behind me and in a bunch of rooms on other floors and in other cities were the sinew of what went on here. It is on their wings that this show flew, and together we went higher than any one of us could have reached alone. And our work was multiplied by a lot of things: love, respect, wisecracks, irreverence, bad and good taste, and a fair share of wisdom. It was a news show. It was a high time. It was one hell of a ride.” Linda Ellerbee: “Before we leave, thank you. Thank you for the more than ten thousand letters, telegrams, and calls. And for the toys, flowers, books, records, songs about 'Overnight,' and the money, which we sent back. What you said we take with us. I think that it is not as important that NBC took this program off the air as it is that NBC put this program on the air. That was something. We go smiling. The final quote is from Mark Twain, discussing the young missionary who went out among the cannibals. Said Twain: 'They listened with the greatest of interest to everything he had to say. And then they ate him.' This is the three hundred sixty-seventh edition of Overnight. There are no more.” And so it goes…off the air.
