Definitions for "ABC 2000 Today"
ABC 2000 Today was ABC News's coverage of the millennium from 1999-12-31 to 2000-01-01. Peter Jennings anchored the 25 hour broadcast in Times Square Studios in New York. ABC temporarily converted the Good Morning America marquee broadcast studio into a type of "millennium command center" that included a desk, where a standing Jennings spent most of his time, two lounge chairs, where Jennings would interview guests, a large screen with a time-zone included map of the world, a wall of clocks, and a make-shift newsroom where ABC News staffers would follow the latest developments.
