The revolution will be covered in ivy

Andrew Heyward, former president of CBS News, commented on the resignation of David Westin as head of ABC News:
The thing to watch is who ABC appoints as Mr. Westin’s successor, Mr. Heyward said. (No names have yet emerged as serious contenders). Someone with formal corporate training, like a person from ABC’s stations division, would most likely forecast a decision to manage costs in the short term, he said. Someone with a digital background, like a former Google executive, could signal a radical and more long-term approach.
 The choice ahead will require an extremely diverse pool of applicants, as Mr. Heyward pointed out:
“I think you’ll either see someone from Harvard Business School or a Harvard dropout.”
