  • West 57th is a newsmagazine television program that aired on CBS from August 13, 1985, through September 9, 1989. West 57th originally premiered as a summer show, and took its name from the New York address of the CBS Broadcast Center, 524 West 57th Street. The original correspondents were Jane Wallace, Bob Sirott, Meredith Vieira and John Ferrugia. Later contributors included Steve Kroft, Selina Scott, and Stephen Schiff. The program's popularity, a concern for 60 Minutes creator Don Hewitt, prompted pundit Andy Rooney to dedicate one of his closing segments on his program to a parody of West 57th correspondents. This was widely interpreted by the "West 57th" team that Hewitt perceived their show as a threat. After the cancellation, the program was replaced by Saturday Night with Connie Chung. Vieira and fellow correspondent Steve Kroft transferred to 60 Minutes, where Kroft currently remains. Vieira went on to anchor NBC's Today Show (after appearing on The View for nine years). Sirott moved to Chicago to continue a successful career in local TV and radio. John Ferrugia moved to Denver, where he has been an investigative reporter and is currently anchor and managing editor of Insight with John Ferrugia at Rocky Mountain PBS. (en)
