Ted Koppel hangs up his cleats at ABC tonight. But in an interview with Charlie Rose last night he hinted that he will be returning shortly to the airwaves, perhaps atÂ HBO.Â Koppel prides himself onÂ mature truth-telling, so he hadÂ no problem telling Rose that ABC gingerly showed him the door because his salary was going up and his ratings were going down.Â ABC wanted to throw a hail mary and expand the show to a live hourÂ --Â KoppelÂ disclosed the tradeÂ secretÂ thatÂ the beginning of the endÂ forÂ a show is the moment when executivesÂ start talking about expanding it -- but KoppelÂ didn't want the bother and didn't want to have hang aroundÂ ABC until midnight.
