NEWS: Chandler Massey, Ratings, Rhonda Ross, Katie Couric

DAYS' Chandler Massey on his Emmy nod and whether Will Horton is gay
“Will is an old soul which I guess isn’t too different from me. I feel like I’m an old soul,” Chandler said. “Will is the kid who had to grow up too fast. His mom has made some interesting choices in her life and I think because of all the things that happened to him while he was growing up, he really has become like the rock of his family, the voice of reason. I really enjoy playing Will because he’s just a generally good guy and if you can make that interesting, I think you’re doing something right.”

Katie Couric and Jeff Zucker Reunite at ABC
ABC President Anne Sweeney says she has been “a big fan and at times a competitor of Katie’s. I’m thrilled that we’re in business with her—the excitement, the curiosity she brings with her, her ability to engage the audience with the storytelling.”

  1. Anne Sweeney is going to be sadly disappointed when she finds out what the viewers think of Katy Couric over General screen for me!
