The Insider's Debbie Matenopoulos got the enviable task of interviewing ABC News anchors David Muir, Bill Weir and Josh Elliott, where the three showed off their playful sides, as well as their most memorable experiences on the job so far.
"I'd have to say this past year has been the story of the voice -- the unheard voice," World News anchor David Muir said about his most compelling story to date. "We were in Egypt where people literally drove that push to democracy, that revolution in Tahrir Square," he recalled. "Then you go to Japan where they have the nuclear disaster, and those people had no voice in the nuclear zone. And I remember we got inside and they were detecting for radiation ... you could just see it on [children's] faces -- they couldn't even describe what it was like to be as frightened as they were. So I was just taken by the people that we met this year," he said.
For Nightline co-anchor Bill Weir, the most exciting story has been being embedded with the troops in Afghanistan.
"Seeing it, smelling it, you could imagine what war is like," he said. "We're so detached from it here, but when you see how these guys react -- under fire -- was the most exhilarating and frightening moment in my career. I would go back in a heartbeat."
As for Good Morning America anchor Josh Elliott, one of his most memorable moments was when President Obama announced that Osama bin Laden was killed -- and it just so happened to be his first day on the job.
"And I thought, do you guys do this for all the new guys? Is this how you welcome somebody, with a career-defining moment?," he jokes. "My first story was the national reaction to bin Laden's killing and I did it out there, and I thought, wow -- this isn't Lions vs. Cubs anymore -- I'm not in Kansas," he said about the transition from being co-anchor of ESPN's SportsCenter to GMA.
