She said that he was a big brother to her. She added that he made her comfortable with her work.

She said she stood up in the corner admiring his work. 

She added that on the first month of working with Tom, two popes died, one of the biggest newscasts on air, but at that time, she was not afraid as she felt she was in good company. 

Jane Shared How She Got Cast For The Today Show

Barbara Walters hosted the Today Show but left her job and joined ABC News. So, the show needed a co-anchor. 

She shared that Betty Furness asked her to go to New York to do the Today Show. She flew to New York, and she was very nervous. 

She shared that her sister from Pittsburgh called her and said she was one of the five women auditioning for Barbara Walters's job. 

That was published in some local newspaper, and her sister read it for her on call. She added that she only slept for 45 minutes. 

She further added the other four women were all brilliant newscasters and political commentators, and she was the youngest. 

She said she was very calm as she had nothing to lose. She mentioned Llyod Dobyns liked her and thought that she was funny. 

She hung out in New York for a week and went back. She shared that she got a call from Richard Wald, former president of NBC, when she was in her apartment in Chicago

He told her to sit down and said she had gotten the job. She further shared that nobody in NBC knew she had landed the job. 

Richard had not shared his decision with anyone; she was the first to know he picked her out of all the women. 

She said her most prominent competitor was Betty Furness and a film star.
