Back in 1995 when Ted Koppel was at ABC News, he did a feature on Nightline with a retired university professor named Morrie Schwartz, who was dying of ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.
Among those viewers that evening was a young sports writer named Mitch Albom. Morrie just so happened to be his favorite and most beloved former college professor. They reconnected, and the insightful meetings that ensued led to the international number one bestselling book, Tuesdays with Morrie. It became a staple in classrooms and universities, and a four-time Emmy-winning TV movie.
