>>> THIS EVENING ON THE "ROCK NEWMAN SHOW," HONORING A LEGEND. THE LIFE AND TIMES OF JIM VANCE. TODAY WE CELEBRATE THE LOCAL NEWS ANCHOR EXTRORDANAIRE WHO PASSED AWAY IN LATE JULY 2017. HERE TO HELP US PAY TRIBUTE ARE JIM'S WIFE KATHY, COWORKERS JOE SCHREIBER AND DOREEN GENTZLER PLUS FELLOW NEWS HOST, BRUCE JOHNSON. THAT'S COMING UP RIGHT NOW ON THE "ROCK NEWMAN SHOW." [♪ THEME MUSIC ♪] >> WELCOME TO THE "ROCK NEWMAN SHOW" FROM THE CAMPUS OF HISTORIC HOWARD UNIVERSITY, LOCATED IN THE NATION'S CAPITOL. I'M ROCK NEWMAN, AND IT IS MY DESIRE TO INSPIRE YOU WITH PERSONAL STORIES OF EXTRAORDINARY ACHIEVEMENT. TO HELP US PREPARE, TO HONOR MY FRIEND JIM VANCE, I WOULD LIKE TO START OFF WITH SOME WORDS FROM THE MAN HIMSELF. HERE IS JIM VANCE DURING A VISIT RIGHT HERE ON THE "ROCK NEWMAN SHOW." SOMETHING WE DON'T WANT TO HAPPEN FOR A LONG, LONG TIME -- >> WHAT IS THAT? >> -- BUT WHAT DO YOU WANT ON YOUR TOMBSTONE? YOU CAN ASK -- I TOLL HER YEARS AGO. I WANT ON MY TOMBSTONE, A NEW WORDS. FIVE WORES. IT WAS A HELL OF A PARTY. THAT'S WHAT I WANT ON MY TOMBSTONE, BECAUSE THAT SUMS IT ALL UP FOR ME. I HAVE SO THOROUGHLY ENJOYED THIS LIFE EVERY SINGLE DAY OF IT. WHEN YOU WAKE UP IN THE MORNING, ROCK NEWMAN, DON'T YOU WAKE UP WITH A SENSE OF ANTICIPATION ABOUT THE DAY AHEAD OF YOU? THAT'S WHAT I DO EVERY MORNING TOO, AND I'M LOOKING AHEAD TO MANY, MANY MORE DAYS OF WAKING UP WITH A SMILE ON MY FACE SO THAT WHEN I AM GONE FROM HERE, AND THEY PUT THAT UP THERE, IT WILL SPEAK THE TRUTH. IT HAS BEEN ONE HELL OF A PARTY. AND I'M GLAD YOU WERE AT THE PARTY WITH ME, MY FRIEND. [ LAUGHTER ] >> I WOULD LIKE TO WELCOME EVERYONE TO THE "ROCK NEWMAN SHOW." THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING US HERE TODAY. YOU KNOW, PART OF WHAT WE HEARD RIGHT THERE WAS THAT INFECTION -- INFECTIOUS BELLY LAUGH. I START OFF BY SAYING I HOPE TO INSPIRE YOU WITH STORIES OF EXTRAORDINARY ACHIEVEMENT. AND I WANT TO TALK TO MY VIEWERS FOR A SECOND. BECAUSE THAT PARTICULAR INFECTIOUS BELLY LAUGH THAT YOU HEARD RIGHT THERE IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT JIM VANCE LIKED TO DO. HE LIKED TO HAVE FUN. IN THAT WAS INDEED INFECTIOUS. SO TO MANY VIEWERS, IF YOU HAVE EVER SEEN THE PIECE WHERE JIM VANCE AND GEORGE MICHAEL WENT BACK TO THEIR MOST TEN YEAR OLD SELVES AND LAUGHED AT THE MODEL ON THE RUNWAY, I WANT MY VIEWERS TO DO THAT. JOE SCHREIBER, I'M GOING TO GO TO YOU FIRST, BECAUSE YOU WERE GEORGE MICHAEL'S PRODUCER. WERE YOU THERE THAT DAY? >> I WAS. I WAS. AND I WAS ACTUALLY IN -- IN THE CONTROL ROOM. >> RIGHT. >> BECAUSE YOU -- YOU ARE IN THERE GETTING READY FOR THE -- FOR THE SEGMENT THAT'S COMING UP. >> SURE. >> AND -- IT WAS LIKE A MOMENT THAT -- THAT'S FROZEN IN TIME BECAUSE IT WAS -- IT WAS REAL. >> YEAH. >> IT WAS REAL. AND I -- I WATCHED IT AGAIN LAST NIGHT, BECAUSE I KNEW I WAS COMING IN TODAY, AND I FIGURED IT MIGHT COME UP, AND I LAUGHED AGAIN, AS IF IT WAS THE FIRST TIME I SAW IT. >> RIGHT. AND PART OF WHAT YOU SAW IN -- RASCEL OF JIM VANCE WAS HE SAID WAIT A MINUTE, AND HE SORT OF INSTIGATED IT GOING A SECOND AND THIRD TIME. >> JIM -- JIM DID THIS BETTER THAN GEORGE. JIM COULD LAUGH AT HIMSELF. IT WAS OKAY FOR HIM TO LAUGH AT OTHERS, BECAUSE NO ONE TOOK IT PERSONALLY. >> YEAH. KATHY, HIS WIFE OF 30 YEARS. >> YES. >> I CAN ONLY IMAGINE YOU HAD A LOT OF THOSE MOMENTS. >> WE DID. WE DID. WE HAD SO MUCH FUN. TRAVELING, WITH THE KIDS, AND WE WORKED TOGETHER FOR MOST OF THAT 30 YEARS, AND SO WE HAD -- WE HAD MOMENTS AT WORK TOO THAT WERE HILARIOUS. >> AND I MEAN THAT IS SOMETHING THAT IS BEYOND -- YOU KNOW, I LOVE MY WIFE. I REALLY, REALLY LOVE MY LIFE -- WIFE. BUT I DON'T KNOW IF WE COULD WORK TOGETHER FOR 20-SOME YEARS. >> IT HAD ITS MOMENTS. >> HOW DID YOU DO THAT? >> IT HAD ITS CHALLENGES, IT DID. BUT WE MET AT THE STATION. WE MET AND WE WERE COLLEAGUES AND FRIENDS, SO WE HAD DEVELOPED A WORK RHYTHM, SO WE COULD TURN ON WORK AND TURN OFF PERSONAL LIFE AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT AND THEN AS SOON AS WORK WAS DONE, OKAY IT'S ON, BUT . . . >> I DON'T KNOW IF ANYONE ON CAMERA HAS ASKED YOU THIS BEFORE, BUT KNOWING JIM VANCE HAS I KNOW HIM, AND SORT OF AS THE PUBLIC KNOWS HIM, I WANT TO ASK A QUESTION THAT I'M SURE THOUGH PUBLIC WANTS TO KNOW. >> ALL RIGHT. OKAY. >> HOW DID HE PROPOSE? >> WELL, HE TOOK ME TO DINNER, AND HE JUST SAID, WILL YOU MARRY ME? I MEAN YOUR CLASSIC, WILL YOU MARRY ME? >> SOMETIME -- A VERY NON-TRADITIONAL GUY, IT WAS VERY TRADITIONAL. >> IT WAS VERY TRADITIONAL. AND THAT WAS THAT. HE DIDN'T GET ON HIS KNEE, BUT THAT'S OKAY. AND THAT WAS THAT. IT WAS JUST A BASIC PROPOSAL, AND I SAID YES. >> DOREEN THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE TODAY. >> MY PLEASURE. THANK YOU FOR DOING A PROGRAM LOOKING BACK ON THE LIFE OF JIM VANCE. >> YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME. YOU WORKED WITH HIM FOR HOW MANY YEARS? >> 28. >> FOR 28 YEARS. >> UH-HUH. >> AND ALL THAT TIME AS CO-ANCHOR? >> YES. I'M DOING -- TODAY THE JOB I WAS HIRED TO DO 28 YEARS AGO, SAME -- SAME PARTNER ALL THAT TIME. I FEEL REALLY, REALLY -- THAT'S A RARE -- THAT'S A RARE EVENT IN TELEVISION NEWS. >> CAN YOU TALK TO US ABOUT THE INITIAL DAYS, LIKE FIRST GETTING TO KNOW VANCE, YOU KNOW, WHAT THE PROCESS WAS? DID -- WAS HE A PART OF THE DECISION-MAKING PROCESS, OR WAS THAT FROM JUST MANAGEMENT OR -- >> I THINK -- I HAD WORKED IN THE NBC FAMILY AT ANOTHER STATION, SO -- SO I WAS KNOWN TO THE -- TO THE COMPANY, BUT I -- BEFORE I WAS HIRED I MET VANCE, THERE WAS A DINNER THAT HE AND I OFTEN RECALLED HOW FAR -- HOW LONG AGO THAT SEEMED AND HOW FAR WE HAD COME. >> UH-HUH. >> SO, SURE, OF COURSE, I THINK HE WAS INVOLVED IN THAT DECISION. SO I CAME IN. I'M 31 YEARS OLD, AND I'M -- I'M JOINING A VERY ESTABLISHED TEAM OF THREE GUYS WHO HAD BEEN WORKING TOGETHER FOR ABOUT TEN YEARS BEFORE I -- I GOT THERE, VANCE AND GEORGE MICHAEL AND BOB RYAN, AND I THINK I WAS NOT -- MAYBE I WAS TOO YOUNG TO REALLY BE AS INTIMIDATED AS I MIGHT HAVE BEEN, BECAUSE I WAS -- BUT -- BUT I GREW UP WITH BROTHERS. >> YEAH. >> YOUNGER BROTHERS, AND SO I -- I -- I -- THEY -- THEY GAVE ME A CHANCE. THEY WELCOMED ME IN, BUT I -- I FEEL LIKE THEY KIND OF MADE ME PROVE MYSELF THERE. THEY WEREN'T IMMEDIATELY -- >> I WANTED TO ASK YOU A QUESTION, BECAUSE I THINK IT'S VERY INTERESTING. AND SINCE WE'RE CELEBRATING, PAYING TRIBUTE TO VANCE, IS DURING THOSE TIMES, TELL US ABOUT SOME OF THE INTERACTION. TELL US ABOUT WHAT -- WHAT YOU REMEMBER MOST ABOUT THOSE TIMES. >> I HAVE A REALLY VIVID MEMORY OF THE -- THE -- THE BROADCAST WHEN I FELT LIKE THEY SAID OKAY, YOU KNOW, YOU ARE -- YOU ARE IN. >> UH-HUH. UH-HUH. >> IT WAS -- VANCE AND GEORGE HAD A TENDENCY TO GET A LITTLE CARRIED AWAY -- >> YEAH. >> -- AS YOU SEE IT ON FULL DISPLAY IN THAT YOUTUBE CLIP WITH THE MODEL. >> ABSOLUTELY. >> THEY COULD GET A LITTLE CARRIED AWAY, GO OFF ON A TANGENT ABOUT PAYING ALIMONY OR, YOU KNOW, STUFF. >> UH-HUH. >> AND I WAS PRETTY NEW AND PRETTY GREEN, AND THEY STARTED OFF, AND I SAID, YOU KNOW, I INTERRUPTED THEM, AND SAID, YOU KNOW, SOMETHING LIKE WEREN'T WE SUPPOSED TO BE TALKING ABOUT THE SPORTS, GEORGE? AND AFTER THAT BROADCAST THEY BOTH LOOKED AT ME LIKE, OKAY. YOU GOT THE GUTS TO INTERRUPT US, YOU ARE -- >> YOU BET. >> -- SO IT WAS KIND OF LIKE THAT. BUT I THINK THAT THERE WAS AMONG ALL OF THE MEMBERS OF THAT TEAM, A MUTUAL RESPECT. >> UH-HUH. >> FOR -- FOR SMART PEOPLE WHO UNDERSTOOD THEIR JOBS, AND -- BUT ALSO CONFIDENT ENOUGH TO -- TO BE ABLE TO TAKE A JOKE, AND TAKE A LOT OF RIBBING FROM THEIR -- FROM THEIR COLLEAGUES, AND I THINK THAT'S -- THAT'S -- >> HAVING WORKED WITH JOE SCHREIBER THROUGH THE YEARS, INTERACTIONS WITH GEORGE MICHAEL, TALKING TO VANCE AND EVEN ON THE SHOW THAT WE DID WITH HIM, PART OF WHAT CAME THROUGH -- AND NOW I THINK I'M HEARING YOU SAY IT ALSO, WAS A VERY HIGH LEVEL OF RESPECT FOR EACH ONE'S IT COMMITMENT TO BE THE BEST THEY COULD BE, AND IT WAS NO ACCIDENT THAT YOU GUYS WERE THE LEADING SHOW FOR A LONG TIME. >> UH-HUH. I THINK -- I THINK THERE WAS A LOT OF RESPECT, AND -- AND I THINK EVERYBODY DID THEIR JOB IN DIFFERENT WAYS. >> YEAH. >> BUT EVERYBODY WAS VERY COMMITTED TO GETTING IT RIGHT. >> YEAH. BRUCE YOUR FIRST MEETING AND YOUR REFLECTIONS ON -- ON THE EARLY -- THE BEGINNING OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH VANCE. >> AGAIN, THANKS FOR DOING THIS SHOW. I JUST THINK IT'S GREAT. AND ABOUT THAT CLIP THAT EVERYBODY LAUGHS AT. IT WASN'T THE FIRST TIME SHE TRIPPED THAT GOT EVERYBODY LAUGHING. BECAUSE IF YOU LOOKED AT THAT CLIP, JIM IS VERY STRAIGHT. HE IS ONING OF THOSE, IT'S MY JOB -- IT WAS THE SECOND OR THIRD TIME SHE TRIPPED. AND THAT'S WHERE IT REALLY BECAME AN INCREDIBLE PIECE OF VIDEO, AND JUST YOU GUYS TALKING ABOUT IT, I'M SITTING HERE LAUGHING ALL OVER, BECAUSE I CAN REMEMBER THE PIECE. I CAN'T TELL YOU THE FIRST TIME I MET JIM VANCE. BECAUSE I MET JIM VANCE 20 DIFFERENT TIMES, AND EACH TIME THEY BECAME DIFFERENT RELATIONSHIPS. I CAME TO WASHINGTON BACK IN 1976. I CAME FROM A STATION IN CINCINNATI, OHIO, BUT I WAS THE ONLY BLACK PERSON THERE. NO BLACK WRITERS, NO OTHER BLACK REPORTERS, NOTHING, JUST ME. AND THEN I CAME HERE, AND I THOUGHT I HAD DIED AND GONE TO HEAVEN, BECAUSE NOT ONLY DID THEY HAVE THE LIST THAT WE CAN GO ON AND ON AND ON, CHANNEL 7 AS -- AND ON AND ON AND ON. AND THEY ARE ALL BETTER THAN ME. ALL OF THESE BLACK PEOPLE. LIKE THEY HAD BEEN HERE. I CALL THEM THE FIRST WAVE OF INCREDIBLE TALENT. GETTING BACK TO WHAT YOU SAID, THEY ARE SIZING YOU UP, AND THEY WANTED TO KNOW, CAN YOU PLAY? CAN YOU CONTRIBUTE? DO YOU BELONG HERE? SO FOR A WHILE THEY ARE GOING TO WATCH YOU. THEY ARE GOING TO HONE YOU. AND WHEN I MET JIM VANCE WE ARE BOTH MEMBERS OF THE GREATEST FRATERNITY ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. >> YOU MIGHT HAVE SOME CHALLENGE TO THAT ON THE CAMPUS OF HOWARD UNIVERSITY. BUT ANY WAY YOU HAVE THE FLOOR. >> THAT HELPED. >> SURE. >> AND I THINK IT HELPED THAT WE DIDN'T WORK AT THE SAME STATION. WE WEREN'T REALLY IN COMPETITION. HE IS JIM VANCE THE MAN, AND I'M A REPORTER. AND HE WATCHES ME, AND I AM WATCHING HIM, SO YOU CAN PLAY. AND I DIDN'T SCREW UP. BUT THE FIRST FEW TIMES I CAN RECALL, IT'S KIND OF LIKE, HERE I AM. WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP YOU IN? AND I'M LIKE, WOE. I'M ONE OF THOSE GUYS, BROKEN FAMILY, AND I DON'T TRUST ANYBODY. >> YEAH, THEY ARE TRYING TO SET YOU UP. >> YEAH, AND DOREEN AND I WERE TALKING, ONE TIME WE WERE ALL HAVING BREAKFAST, ME, JIM, CORELIN AND SOME OTHER GUYS, JUST TALKING AND BEING A SUPPORT GROUP EACH OTHER. BECAUSE IT CAN BE TOUGH, IF ONLY IN YOUR HEAD. >> YEAH. >> AND WE WERE ALL SMOKERS BACK THEN. BUT JIM SAYS AT THIS ONE MEETING, BREAKFAST, I THINK IT WAS COLUMBIA STATION. I'M GOING TO STOP SMOKING. I'M GOING TO A HYPNOTIST. THAT WAS IT. NOW I'M GOING TO THE HYPNOTIST, AND THE SAME ONE. I WENT TO THE HYPNOTIST STOPPED SMOKING. COURTLAND WENT TO THE HYPNOTIST, QUIT SMOKING. JIM COULDN'T STOP, BUT HE OFFERED THAT TO US. AND DOREEN AND I WERE TALKING AGAIN, AND SHE WAS LIKE, I BET THAT MADE HIM MAD. AND THAT IS TOO PART OF JIM. I DON'T KNOW WHAT HE DID AFTER THAT, TO STOP SMOKING, BUT THAT IS THE KIND OF GUY HE WAS. AND YOU GUYS KNOW JIM IS THE KIND OF GUY THAT -- WE'LL TALK AGAIN ON MONDAY. WHY DON'T WE MAKE THIS A REGULAR THING. EVERY MONDAY WE'LL TALK. THE NEXT MONDAY COMES, NO JIM. THE NEXT MONTH GOES BY, AND THEN FINALLY, HEY, MY MAN! >> A MARION BARRY QUALITY. >> ABSOLUTELY. I LOVED THE GUY. >> KATHY, I'M GOING TO ASK YOU IF -- IF HE EVER SHARED WITH YOU -- HE -- REVEREND WILLIE WILSON FROM THE BAPTIST CHURCH DID THE PRIVATE CEREMONY. SO WE TALKED JUST PRIOR TO THAT, AND HE TALKED ABOUT HOW JIM TALKED TO HIM AND HE ASKED HIM HOW DID -- HOW DID YOU -- HOW DID -- WHERE DID YOUR STYLE COME FROM? AND HE GAVE AN ANSWER THAT HE WOULD SIT AROUND THE TABLE WITH HIS FAMILY, WITH HIS UNCLES, AND HOW THEY WOULD SORT OF DELIVER THE DAY'S NEWS SORT OFFER BARBERSHOP STYLE AND THAT BECAME PART OF HIM. DO YOU HAVE ANY INCITE INTO THAT? >> THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED. AND THEY ARE STILL DOING IT NOW, AND THE NEXT GENERATION AND THE NEXT GENERATION OF VANCES. VANCE'S FAMILY IN PHILLY, YOU KNOW, THEY WERE BOOTSTRAP PEOPLE, AND THEY SUCCEEDED, EVERY ONE OF THEM AT DETERMINATION AND GRIT, AND THEY REACHED A LEVEL OF EDUCATION AND SOPHISTICATION AND KNOWLEDGE THAT ANYBODY WOULD WANT TO ACHIEVE. >> YEAH. >> AND THAT -- THAT WAS THE EXAMPLE FOR VANCE. HE SAW PEOPLE WORKING HARD TO GET WHAT THEY WANTED AND NEEDED, AND TO GIVE BACK AS WELL. >> YEAH. >> AND SO, YEAH, VANCE -- VANCE LEARNED EVERYTHING ABOUT THE NEWS AND LEARNED TO BE HUNGRY FOR THE NEWS, AND HE HAS INSTILLED THAT IN -- IN OUR KIDS >> YEAH, HE GAVE A REFLECTION WHEN ON THE SHOW ABOUT HIS GRANDDAD, MAN, AND WHAT HIS GRANDDAD -- HE TOOK THE RISK OF GIVING UP A JOB, BECAUSE HE WAS BEING MISTREATED IN THE TIME OF DEPRESSION AND STARTED HIS OWN BUSINESS AND WENT OUT AND PAINTED THE VAN THAT HAD VANCE AND SONS, AND WHAT A PROUD MOMENT THAT WAS. YOU COULD TELL HOW THAT RESINATED WITH HIM TO THE DAY WHEN WE DID THIS JUST A YEAR OR SO AGO. >> YEAH. YEAH. NO, VANCE -- VANCE WAS -- YOU KNOW, THE THING ABOUT VANCE -- THERE WAS A QUOTE, WHEN THE STATION CELEBRATED VANCE'S 25TH ANNIVERSARY, THEY WANTED TO GIVE HIM A -- A -- SOME KIND OF AN AWARD. >> RIGHT. >> SO THEY ASKED ME, TO -- WELL, WHAT KIND OF QUOTE COULD WE PUT ON HERE. AND OF COURSE HE COULDN'T KNOW, SO I WAS JUST PROBING HIM, AND IF YOU WERE GOING TO HAVE -- YOU KNOW, THOSE KIND OF QUESTIONS. THE QUOTE HE CAME UP WITH WAS A QUOTE FROM HIS GRANDFATHER THAT SAYS ALL HONEST WORK IS NOBLE. AND THAT WAS VANCE'S MOTTO. YOU WORK HARD. YOU DO WHAT YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO DO. THAT'S A NOBLEMAN. AND VANCE WAS A NOBLEMAN BECAUSE HE GAVE EVERYTHING TO HIS JOB, AND TO ANYTHING THAT HE DID. HE GAVE IT HIS ALL. >> WE HAVE A CLIP OF WHICH YOU SPOKE OF, GETTING SOME INSPIRATION AND HE QUOTED ONE OF THE GIANTS FROM THE INDUSTRY, DAVID BRINKLEY. LET'S TAKE A LOOK. >> IF I'M GOING TO MENTION ANYBODY, OF HAVING AN INFLUENCE, IT WOULD BE DAVID BRINKLEY, WHO WAS ONE OF THE MOST DECENT MEN I HAVE EVER KNOWN IN MY LIFE. I WENT TO THE CAFETERIA ONE DAY WHEN I STARTED, AND HE WAS IN THERE. AND I SAID HAVE YOU GOT A MINUTE? AND I SAID I NEED SOME ADVICE FROM YOU, EVERY SINGLE TIME THE CAMERA GOES ON, I'M TIERFIED. I WANT TO PEE, I'M SO SCARED. >> RIGHT. >> DAVID WAS SITTING THERE -- I REMEMBER HE WAS EATING AN OMELET, AND DAVID SAID, WELL, JIM, I FEEL IT TOO. THE DAY COMES THE LIGHT GOES ON AND YOU DON'T GET NERVOUS, GET THE HELL OUT OF THE BUSINESS. >> UH-HUH. >> AND I'M LIKE, IS THAT IT? YOU KNOW? AND THAT WAS IT. BUT ANYWAY, WATCHING HIM, TAKING NOTE OF HIS COMMITMENT TO TASK, AND HIS ENTHUSIASM ABOUT IT AFTER ALL OF THOSE YEARS THAT HE HAD BEEN IN THE BUSINESS WAS INSPIRATIONAL. >> DOREEN, I WANT TO COME TO YOU ON SOMETHING AND ASK YOU IF YOU CAN REMEMBER BEING IN THE MOMENT. JIM DID SOMETHING THAT ONE COULD THINK TO BE POLITICAL SUICIDE IN THIS MARKET. >> UH-HUH. >> THINK OF THEM AS YOU WILL, THE WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM. THEY ARE PROBABLY NOT MORE RABID FANS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD THAT LIVE UP IN -- AND EMBRACE THEIR TEAM AS THIS FAN BASE DOES. THIS IS THE FAN BASE TO WHICH YOU ALL AS BROADCASTERS COMMUNICATE WITH, AND JIM WENT OUT WITHOUT ANY APOLOGY AND VERY STRONGLY SAID THE NAME OF THE FOOTBALL TEAM THE REDSKINS SUCKS. THAT WAS EXTRAORDINARILY CORE AGEOUS -- IT'S NOT SOMETHING THAT HE WAS REQUIRED TO DO, HE HAD TO DO, AND HE HAD TO KNOW THAT HE WAS GOING TO TAKE SOME HEAT BY THAT. DO YOU REMEMBER HIM DOING THAT? AND HOW YOU FELT? WHAT YOU THOUGHT WHEN HE DID IT? >> HE WAS -- HE WAS AN EARLY ADAPTER OF THAT. I THINK MORE PEOPLE HAVE -- HAVE MADE THAT DECISION SINCE, BUT HE -- HE WAS ONE OF THE FIRST PEOPLE, AT LEAST IN -- IN D.C. TO -- TO MAKE THAT DECISION, AND I -- HE -- HE FELT IT WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. >> RIGHT. >> AND HE FELT VERY STRONGLY ABOUT IT, AND -- >> I -- I THINK WHAT I'M ASKING IS, DO YOU REMEMBER HOW YOU FELT ABOUT HIM DOING IT? WHAT IT MEANT FOR THE BROADCAST? HOW DID THE FOLKS AT THE STATION FEEL? BECAUSE -- >> I THINK HE TOOK SOME HEAT. >> IT WAS A GUTSY MOVE. >> IT WAS A GUTSY MOVE. AND I THINK HE TOOK SOME HEAT FROM THE BOSSES. AND I THINK HE TOOK SOME HEAT FROM THE MANAGERS. I -- I -- I -- I REMEMBER THINKING THAT'S A GUTSY MOVE, AND GOOD FOR YOU, AND -- AND I -- IT BECAME A LITTLE BIT OF A GAME, BECAUSE IT WOULD STILL APPEAR IN THE COPY ALL THE TIME, AND IT BECAME ENTERTAINING FOR ME TO WATCH HIM -- >> TRY TO GET AROUND IT. >> -- TRY TO GET AROUND IT. EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE ONE WOULD ALMOST SLIP THROUGH OR WOULD SLIP THROUGH. >> UH-HUH. >> I WATCHED PRODUCERS BEGIN TO CHANGE WRITING COPY FOR HIM. AND THAT TOOK SOME OF THE FUN OUT OF IT FOR ME. BUT HE FELT IT STRONGLY, AND I -- I SUPPORT THAT. >> YEAH. >> I DIDN'T FEEL IT WAS MY JOB TO -- TO -- TO -- TO REFUSE TO SAY SOMETHING. YOU KNOW, PEOPLE -- >> BUT HE DID. >> HE DID, HE DID, AND HE -- >> AND HE WAS WILLING TO TAKE THE HEAT. >> YES. >> AND THAT'S PART OF THE DEFINITION OF CHARACTER. >> YES. >> ROCK, IT'S HUGE. IT'S HUGE. BECAUSE TALKING ABOUT HOW GREAT JIM WAS OR WHAT A GREAT GUY HE WAS, BUT IT IS ALSO LONELY AT THE TOP, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? >> YEAH. >> NOBODY HAD THAT POSITION BUT JIM VANCE, OKAY? >> YEAH. YEAH. >> SO, YOU KNOW, YOU SEE OTHERS DO IT. >> YEAH. >> AND JUST TO BE QUITE DIRECT, YOU MIGHT SEE A WHITE ANCHOR DO THAT. BUT TO HAVE A BLACK ANCHOR OR A FEMALE ANCHOR TO COME OUT AND SAY SOMETHING LIKE THAT, TO TAKE ON THE WASHINGTON -- YOU KNOW -- BURGUNDY AND GOLD, THAT IS HUGE. THE QUESTION I'M ASKING IS WHAT POINT IN TIME -- I THINK I KNOW THE ANSWER, BUT AT WHAT POINT IN TIME DID JIM FEEL THAT HE COULD DO THAT? YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? >> YEAH. YEAH. >> THERE MIGHT HAVE BEEN ANOTHER TIME WHERE HE DIDN'T FEEL LIKE HE COULD DO THAT. AND GOING BACK TO THE CONVERSATION TO DAVID BRINKLEY. THAT IS IMPORTANT STUFF. HE IS GOING TO THIS GUY, AND HE KNOWS HE CAN DO AND SAY ALL OF THESE THINGS BECAUSE IT IS JUST ACCEPTED. THE THING I USED TO SPENDING A LOT OF TIME TALKING TO JIM ABOUT WAS THE THINGS HE COULDN'T SAY. YOU HAVE TO BOUNCE THIS OFF OF PEOPLE. WE ALL WANT TO SCREAM ABOUT THINGS. BUT IT'S NOT OUR JOB. WE'RE IN THIS BOX. WHEN CAN YOU GET OUT OF THE BOX, AND WHEN CAN YOU GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION, AND WHEN WILL YOUR BOSS STAND BEHIND YOU. THEY SAY THEY WILL STAND BEHIND YOU, BUT YOU WAIT UNTIL THE VIEWERS REACT. >> WE HAVE GEORGE MICHAEL, YOU SAW THEIR CHEMISTRY. >> UH-HUH. >> WHAT MANY PEOPLE DIDN'T HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SEE OR TO KNOW ABOUT -- I CALLED JOE SCHREIBER BEFORE WE WERE DOING THE BROADCAST WITH -- WITH -- WITH VANCE, AND TALKED TO HIM ABOUT SOME OF HIS MEMORIES, SOME OF HIS REFLECTIONS, AND ONE OF THE THINGS, JOE, YOU TALKED ABOUT WAS THE MOMENT WHEN JIM SPOKE AT GEORGE'S FUNERAL. >> IT WAS THE MOST MOVING EULOGY. NO SLIGHT TO COACH JOE GIBBS WHO WAS THERE, WHO HONORED GEORGE, BUT IT CAME -- IT CAME FROM THE HEART AND THE SOUL. IT WAS SO REAL -- >> YEAH. >> -- AND IT OPENED UP A DOOR INTO WHAT THEIR RELATIONSHIP WAS, AND I DON'T WANT TO GET TOO FAR OFF OF THE PATH, BUT, YOU KNOW, THAT CONNECTION GOES WAY BACK TO PHILADELPHIA. >> OKAY. >> GEORGE GOT TO PHILLY WHEN VANCE WAS JUST GETTING OUT OF COLLEGE. >> OKAY. >> GEORGE WAS A BIG ROCK AND ROLL D.J. AT THAT TIME. >> UH-HUH. >> AND HE'S PLAYING THE SPINNERS, ALL OF THE -- PHILADELPHIA SOUL, THE SPINNERS, LOU WALL, ALL OF THOSE GUYS. >> YEAH. >> AND HE IS FORMING THAT CONNECTION AND BOND OF THAT AUDIENCE IN THAT CITY. HE DIDN'T DISCRIMINATE BETWEEN SOUL MUSIC OR ROCK AND ROLL, AND HE IS BECOMING A STAR. >> YEAH. >> INTERVIEWING WITH THE BEATLES AND ROLLING STONES AND SO FORTH. >> YEAH. >> SO VANCE LEAVES. HE COMES TO D.C. GEORGE GOES TO NEW YORK, AND THEN THEY GET TOGETHER IN -- IN WASHINGTON. >> YEAH. >> AND GEORGE NEEDED TO BE ON STAGE WITH A STAR. >> UH-HUH. UH-HUH. >> BECAUSE HE GREW UP IN SHOW BUSINESS, BERRY WAS THE GUY THAT MOLDED HIM AS A RECORD PROMOTER WHEN GEORGE WAS DOING THAT. AND NOW HE HAS GOT VANCE. >> UH-HUH. >> AND THAT'S PART OF THE CONNECTION THEY HAD, GOING BACK TO THOSE PHILADELPHIA DAYS. >> UH-HUH. >> AND THERE WAS A DIFFERENTER RABACH THEN. THERE IS NO SLIGHT TO TELEVISION NOW, BUT THAT WAS A DAY AND AGE, WHERE APPOINTMENT VIEWING, MILLIONS OF VIEWERS WATCHING JUST A FEW PEOPLE ON TV. MILLIONS OF ADVERTISING DOLLARS AT STAKE. YOU HAD TO BE REALLY SPECIAL TO BE ON TV. >> YEAH. >> NOWADAYS THERE ARE SO MANY CHANNELS AND SO MANY WEB SHOWS. YOU HAD TO COMMAND THAT STAGE. AND IF GEORGE DIDN'T HAVE SOMEBODY WHO WAS UP TO THAT, HE SUFFERED. >> UH-HUH. >> AND THE FOUR OF YOU TOGETHER FOR SO LONG, THAT WAS MAGICAL, AND -- AND HARD TO TOUCH, AND, YOU KNOW, GOING BACK TO YOUR QUESTION, THERE WAS A RESPECT FOR WORKING REALLY HARD UNDERSTANDING THE SHOW BUSINESS THAT WAS AT HAND. >> UH-HUH. >> AND THE DEDICATION AND PUTTING YOUR FEET IN THE SHOES OF THE AUDIENCE. >> YEAH. YEAH. KATHY, WE'RE TALKING PART OF WHAT WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT HERE IS SORT OF THE PROFESSIONAL JIM VANCE. >> UH-HUH. >> JIM VANCE, AND -- AND WHERE THAT CAME FROM. BEING THE ROCK STAR THAT HE WAS, BEING THE HARD WORKER THAT HE WAS, THERE WERE OBVIOUS WELL-KNOWN PUBLICIZED FRAILTIES, AGAIN, WHICH HE TALKED ABOUT ON THE SHOW, AND I THINK WHAT CAME ACROSS WHEN WE WERE DOING OUR INTERVIEW, THAT IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR THE FOLKS THAT WERE GOING TO BE WATCHING HIM THERE, TO UNDERSTAND HIS REALNESS, AND THAT FAR FROM HIDING HIS FRAILTIES, HE WANTED TO PUT THEM -- HE WANTED TO PUT THEM ON FULL DISPLAY. LET'S -- LET'S TAKE A LOOK HERE, AND I WANT TO COME BACK TO THAT. >> OKAY. THEY WERE IN FACT THE WORST OF TIMES. >> UH-HUH. >> BUT MAYBE THE BEST OF TIMES SUBSEQUENT TO THAT. LET ME TRY TO EXPLAIN. '79 TO '87 IS WHEN THE WORST TIMES WAS. I EXPERIENCED A LEVEL OF DEPRAVITY THE LIKES OF WHICH I DIDN'T KNOW WERE POSSIBLE, AND I EXPERIENCED A MORAL DEGRADATION THAT I NEVER WOULD HAVE LEAVED WAS PART OF MY LIFE. IT WAS ALL BECAUSE OF COCAINE. THE UPSIDE OF IT IS WHAT I LEARNED FROM THAT EXPERIENCE, AND WHAT I LEARNED WAS SO VERY, VERY MUCH. THE PART THAT LINGERS THE MOST IS THE EFFECTS OF WHAT -- THE EFFECT OF WHAT MY ADDICTION HAD ON THE PEOPLE CLOSEST TO ME. TO KATHY, TO MY KIDS. >> UH-HUH. >> TO MY COWORKERS WHO KNEW SOMETHING WAS GOING ON, AND WATCHED ME FALL, AND THEY COULDN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. >> SO YOU WENT THROUGH SOME VERY, VERY DARK DAYS. IT'S CHRONICLED. I DON'T WANT TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME ON THAT. WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO IS IF -- IF YOU COULD SHARE WITH US, THE TIME THAT YOU FELT HE'S GOTTEN OVER THIS HUMP. >> IT WAS SHORTLY BEFORE WE GOT MARRIED. >> UH-HUH. >> BECAUSE THERE WERE A LOT OF HUMPS THAT HE GOT OVER, AND THEN HE WENT BACK, AND HE GOT OVER, AND HE WENT BACK. >> UH-HUH. >> AND THE -- DARK DAYS, THAT'S PROBABLY AN UNDERSTATEMENT FOR HIM, FOR ALL OF US. >> UH-HUH. >> BUT WHAT -- WHAT IS INTERESTING IN WATCHING THAT CLIP ACTUALLY TOUCHED ME. YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE THINGS ABOUT -- AN ADDICT, THERE'S DECEPTION. THERE'S MANIPULATION. THERE'S LYING, ALL OF THAT KIND OF STUFF. >> ON A GRAND SCALE. >> ON A GRAND SCALE, AND IT WAS WHEN VANCE STARTED TELLING THE TRUTH THAT I KNEW HE WAS OVER THE HUMP. WHEN HE STARTED TALKING BOLDLY ABOUT THIS IS WHAT I DID. THIS IS HOW I'M MANAGE IT. >> YEAH. >> THIS IS HOW I HOPE CONTINUE TO MANAGE IT FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. >> YOU SAW HIM TAKING OFF THE MASK. >> I SAW HIM TAKE THE MASK OFF, AND THAT WAS WHEN -- WHEN I KNEW HE WAS GOING TO BE OKAY. AND HE WAS OKAY. >> YEAH. >> HE WAS OKAY AFTER THAT POINT. >> BRUCE, YOU WERE A CUT BUDDY. YOU WERE A CUT BUDDY, MAN, AND SO TELL US ABOUT SOME OF THOSE TIMES. >> YOU KNOW, LISTENING TO KATHY, I'M REMINDED WHAT COMEDIAN CHRIS ROCK SAID, WHEN YOU MEET ME, YOU DON'T MEET ME, YOU MEET MY REPRESENTATIVE. THE PERSON I WANT YOU TO THINK I AM. >> SURE. >> AND THAT'S WHAT JIM AND I WOULD TALK ABOUT. THE REAL PERSON VERSUS THE REPRESENTATIVE. >> TALKING ABOUT YOURSELVES? >> YEAH. YEAH. >> UH-HUH. >> BECAUSE YOU ALL KNOW WHO YOU ARE. >> YEAH. >> I AM GOING TO ASSUME -- I WAS NEVER INTO DRUGS, BUT I'M GOING TO ASSUME THE DRUGS ALLOWED HIM TO BE EARLY ON THE PERSON HE WANTED TO BE, THE PERSON YOU EXPECTED HIM TO BE. >> YEAH. >> SO HE LOSES HIMSELF IN ALL OF THAT. >> UH-HUH. >> AND IN ONE OF OUR MANY, MANY CONVERSATIONS OVER THE YEAR, WE WOULD TALK ABOUT DISCOVERING WHO WE ARE, AND WHY WE'RE HERE. AND IT STARTS WITH -- I DON'T WANT TO GET SPIRITUAL -- >> IT'S OKAY. >> BUT IT STARTS WITH GRACE. THIS IS WHO YOU ARE. >> YEAH. >> YOU KNOW, A LOT OF WHAT YOU DO IS GRACE. >> YEAH. >> I MEAN THIS IS WHAT YOU WERE SENT HERE TO DO. YOU DON'T TRY TO EXPLAIN IT. YOU DON'T TRY TO FIGHT IT. YOU DON'T BECOME EGOTISTICAL OVER IT, YOU ACCEPT IT. >> UH-HUH. >> HE SAID I GAVE HIM A GREAT PIECE OF ADVICE ONE TIME. AND THAT WAS JUST SHOW UP. AND I KNOW I WOULD SAY YOU HAVE NO IDEA THE IMPACT YOU HAVE ON THE REST OF US BY JUST SHOWING UP AND BEING THERE. IF YOU CAN SHOW UP, WE CAN SHOW UP, WE HAVE PERMISSION TO SHOW UP. BECAUSE WE FED OFF OF THAT. HE WAS THE MAN. >> YEAH. >> AND IN HIS OWN WORLD, HE HAD THE FEAR. HE WAS AFRAID OF MAX ROBINSON, BECAUSE HE WAS AT ONE TIME THE MAN. IT IS TOUGH BEING THE MAN. I ONCE SAID TO JIM, I DON'T KNOW THAT I COULD BE THE MAN. I DON'T KNOW IF I COULD HANDLE IT. IT'S HARD HANDLING THAT, BECAUSE EVERYBODY PULLING AT YOU. YOU DON'T HAVE TO MAKE EXCUSES, BUT -- >> YEAH. >> -- ONE TIME WE GOT INTO THIS LONG CONVERSATION ABOUT HOW TO SAY NO. BECAUSE PEOPLE ALWAYS WANT YOU TO DO THINGS. AND A LOT OF THEM EXPECT YOU TO SAY NO, BUT YOU DON'T KNOW THAT, IN YOUR HEAD YOU HAVE GOT TO DO ALL OF THIS. AND ONE OF THE THINGS WE AGREED IS NEVER VOLUNTEER THE OTHER ONE TO DO SOMETHING YOU DON'T WANT TO DO. >> YEAH. [ LAUGHTER ] >> I KNOW THAT SINCE HE HAS PASSED, I MADE THE MISTAKE OF SAYING ON THE AIR ONE TIME, TO ONE OF OUR FRAT BUDDIES. OKAY. I'LL DO THAT FOR YOU. AND BY THE TIME I WENT THERE, I HAD THREE MORE PHONE CALLS. OH, MAN. >> YEAH. >> SO WE TALKED -- JUST MEN. TALKED MEN STUFF. AND GUYS WE DON'T TALK -- WE TALK ABOUT OUR WOMEN, OUR FEELINGS. YOU EXPOSE YOURSELF. WHEN YOU EXPOSE YOURSELF WITH GUYS, THEN THE QUESTION COMES BACK, ARE YOU GOING TO HURT ME WITH THIS. >> I WAS HAVING A CONVERSATION OVER THE WEEKEND, AND I WAS TELLING THIS YOUNG LADY WHO WAS -- SHE'S -- SHE'S 40 YEARS OLE, AND SHE IS MEETING THIS GUY WHO IS 54 YEARS OLD. AND SHE WAS TALKING ABOUT SOME OF THE CHALLENGES THAT THEY HAD. AND I SAID ONE TIME I WAS IN CAESAR'S PALACE IN LAS VEGAS, SIN BAD WAS ON STAGE, AND HE TALKED TO ALL OF THE WOMEN, AND SAID ANYBODY HAVE A TEN YEAR OLD SON? AND HE SAID YOUR HUSBAND IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE TEN YEARS OLDER THAN YOU. SO WE ALL HAVE OUR CHALLENGES. DOREEN YOU TALKING ABOUT THE ISSUE, AS A FRIEND. IN A SENSE, YOU ALL ARE PROFESSIONALLY A DUO, YOU ARE A TEAM. AND YOUR TEAMMATE WHO IS THE MAN -- >> UH-HUH. >> -- NOW IS FAILING TO SHOW UP. WHAT WAS THAT LIKE? >> SO I -- I DON'T KNOW THAT VANCE. I CAME IN 1989, AND HE HAD -- HE HAD OVERCOME THE ISSUES THAT -- THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT. >> UH-HUH. >> I DO WANT TO EXPAND A LITTLE BIT ON -- ON WHAT YOU AND BRUCE WERE TALKING ABOUT. HE -- HE DID -- HE DID AN INTERVIEW WITH ME A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, AS PART OF OUR PROJECT AT THE STATION CHANGING MINDS. >> YES. >> ABOUT MENTAL -- MENTAL HEALTH. >> YES. >> AND HE -- HE -- HE TALKED ABOUT HIS STRUGGLES WITH DEPRESSION, AND THAT WAS VERY GUTSY THING TO DO. >> UH-HUH. >> WE -- AND I DIDN'T ASK HIM TO DO IT. HE -- HE VOLUNTEERED TO DO IT. HE -- IT'S ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF HIM PUTTING -- PUTTING HIMSELF OUT THERE. HE TALKED ABOUT FEELING DEEPLY INSECURE. >> UH-HUH. >> AND ALSO ABOUT FEELING LIKE HE WALKED AROUND WITH A BACKPACK FULL OF MASKS, AND HE -- HE'D, YOU KNOW, TAKE A MASK OUT FOR EACH -- FOR EACH ENCOUNTER. I GUESS WHAT -- WHAT BRUCE IS TALKING ABOUT, ABOUT PRESENTING A DIFFERENT -- A DIFFERENT PERSONA. >> SURE. >> HE -- I -- I -- I WAS -- I WAS AMAZED THAT HE PUT HIMSELF OUT THERE LIKE THAT, IN -- IN SUCH A PUBLIC WAY. >> UH-HUH. >> AND I ALSO KNOW WHAT -- WHAT A WONDERFUL THING THAT WAS THAT HE DID. >> UH-HUH. >> I CANNOT TELL YOU -- I'LL NEVER KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE HE HEARD FROM PERSONALLY. I KNOW HE DID. I KNOW I HAVE HEARD ABOUT THAT INTERVIEW OVER AND OVER AGAIN FROM -- FROM PEOPLE WHO -- WHO SAY, YOU KNOW, IT MEANT SO MUCH TO ME TO SEE -- TO SEE JIM VANCE TALKING ABOUT HIS STRUGGLES ARE -- ARE THE SAME THINGS I'M FEELING, AND HE GOT HELP, AND HE'S -- HE'S FEELING BETTER. WE -- THE WAY THAT PROJECT STARTED WAS WE WERE TALKING WITH ANOTHER PRETTY PROMINENT AFRICAN AMERICAN LEADER IN THE COMMUNITY, WHO ALSO STRUGGLES WITH DEPRESSION, AND IT WAS GOING TO BE -- >> UH-HUH. >> -- A LARGER PROJECT, AND THE OTHER PERSON BACKED OUT, AND VANCE SAID LET'S DO IT. >> YOU KNOW, THERE WAS SUCH AN INTERESTING MIX OF ABJECT VULNERABILITY AND COURAGE. >> UH-HUH. >> I MEAN THERE WAS -- THERE WAS SUCH AN INTERESTING MIX OF THAT AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. I MENTIONED SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT EARLIER ABOUT HIS -- YOU KNOW, HIS INFECTIOUS SMILE AND LAUGH, AND MAN, WE TOUCHED A NERVE WHEN -- WHEN WE DID THE SHOW, WHEN I BROUGHT UP THE NAME MOHAMMED ALI, AND WHAT IMPACT ALI HAD ON HIM, AND BRUCE SITTING HERE FROM LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY, SO WE -- WE KNOW THAT HISTORY, BUT WE -- WE TALKED SOME PRETTY HEAVY STUFF HERE. I WANT TO TRANSITION A LITTLE BIT AND TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT HERE. >> I ASKED HIM FOR 30 SECONDS THIS IS THE HONEST TO GOD TRUTH. HE GAVE ME AT LEAST 15 MINUTES. IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN MORE. WHO WAS COUNTING. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? >> YEAH. YEAH. >> I GOT THE INTERVIEW OUT OF THE WAY LIKE THAT. AND WE JUST STARTED TALKING THEN ABOUT LIFE AND, YOU KNOW, BEING A BLACK MAN IN AMERICA. >> YEAH. >> AND THAT IS WHEN WE DROPPED THE PEARL ON ME, AND I HAVE NEVER FORGOTTEN IT, HE SAID -- BECAUSE I WAS ASKING HIM ABOUT -- AREN'T YOU ANGRY? DON'T YOU WANT TO HURT SOMEBODY? AREN'T YOU AFRAID, THAT THE PRIME OF YOUR LIFE -- AND THIS THING. AND I WILL NEVER FORGET, HE LEANED OVER AND SAID AN OLD MAN TOLD ME ONE TIME, MAN CAN NEVER KNOW HE IS MAN UNTIL HE IS TESTED AND TRIED. I NEVER FORGOT THAT. >> YOU SAID HE IS YOUR HERO, THAT MEANS I CANNOT RESIST WHAT I'M ABOUT TO DO RIGHT NOW. >> WHAT IS THAT? >> THIS IS THE LEDGE ENGINEER OF CASHOUS SLAY, THE WORLD WAS DULL AND WEARY, THEN SOMEONE WITH COLOR, SOMEONE WITH DASH, BROUGHT FANS RUNNING WITH CASH, THE RUSH YOUNG BOXER WAS SOMETHING TO SEE, THE KID FIGHTS GREAT HE HAS SPEED AND ENDURANCE, IF YOU SIGN TO FIGHT HIM, YOU BETTER RAISE YOUR INSURANCE. [ LAUGHTER ] >> THAT WAS WONDERFUL. >> THANK YOU. HE SAYS THERE, YOU CAN'T NO WHAT YOU ARE MADE OF -- PARAPHRASING, UNTIL YOU ARE TESTED. SO HE WAS TESTED AND WAS YOU KNOW -- I -- I THINK SOMEBODY PARALLEL OF MUHAMMAD ALI BECAME GREATER AFTER JOE FRAZIER BEAT HIM IN HIS COMEBACK FIGHT AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN. HE BECAME GREATER AFTER HE STOOD UP AGAINST THE VIETNAM WAR, AND HE WAS CRUSHED. HE WAS KNOCKED DOWN, YOU KNOW, AND HE CAME BACK, AND, YOU KNOW, SORT OF AS A PARALLEL, JIM CAME BACK FROM THE DEPTHS. HE -- HE LITERALLY CAME BACK FROM WHAT SEEMED TO HAVE BEEN A BOTTOMLESS PIT. >> IT WAS. >> AND SURVIVED IT AND THEN THRIVED, AND BECAME A -- MUCH MORE OF A FORCE IN THE COMMUNITY FOR GREATER GOOD. >> UH-HUH. >> FOR THE REST OF HIS DAYS. >> THAT'S TRUE. BUT IT WASN'T EASY. >> UH-HUH. >> AND THIS WAS NO SUDDENLY PHOENIX RISING FROM THE ASHES. >> HUH. >> VANCE WAS HUMBLED. HE HAD TO BE HUMBLED? ORDER TO GET CLEAN. >> YEAH. >> AND -- LOOK, THERE WERE DAYS THAT VANCE CAUGHT THE BUS WHERE -- EVERYWHERE HE WENT BECAUSE HE LOST HIS CAR. HE WOULD CATCH BUSS TO GET TO MEETINGS, SOMETIMES TWO, THREE TIMES A DAY, TO TRY TO STAY SOBER. >> YEAH. >> THIS IS THIS GREAT ANCHOR MAN WHO WHEN I MET HIM HE WAS DRIVING A PORSCHE, AND NOW HE IS CATCHING THE BUS. SO INCH BY INCH, PIECE BY PIECE, HE BUILT HIMSELF BACK UP. ALL OF THE FAMILY. AND THE GOOD FRIENDS. THERE WERE VERY BAD FRIENDS WHO TRIED TO PULL HIM BACK, BUT HE KNEW THAT THAT'S NOT WHERE HE WANTED TO BE, AND FROM THAT MOMENT THAT HE MADE UP HIS MIND, HE MADE UP HIS MIND ALSO TO BRING OTHERS ALONG WITH HIM, SO THEY COULD DO BETTER TOO. >> UH-HUH. BRUCE IN YOUR MEETINGS AT THE DELUXE CAFE, YOUR LUNCHES AT THE DELUXE CAFE -- >> DINNERS. >> DINNERS? >> YEAH, WISCONSIN AVENUE, YEAH. >> TALKING ABOUT THESE TIMES HERE AND THOSE HUMBLE TIMES. >> I TELL YOU, AS I WAS LISTENING TO KATHY, I'M ALSO REMINDED, AS HE WOULD ALSO TALK ABOUT, ALL OF THE PEOPLE THAT DIDN'T GIVE UP ON HIM. JACKIE BRADFORD. THIS LADY SITTING HERE. I MEAN HE HAD A SUPPORT SYSTEM, YOU KNOW, OFTEN GAVE PEOPLE THE EXCUSE THEY NEEDED TO GET RID OF HIM. GRANTED HE MADE A LOT OF MONEY, YOU KNOW, FOR CHANNEL 4 AND NBC AND ALL OF THAT TOO, SO THAT WEIGHS INTO IT ALSO. BUT I'M LISTENING TO THIS A I'M LIKE ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF NOT GIVING UP ON PEOPLE. >> YEAH. >> WE DON'T LEAVE PEOPLE BEHIND. >> WHICH IS SOMETIMES EASY TO DO. >> ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. BUT, AGAIN, GETTING TO THE POINT -- I GOT THE IMPRESSION FROM THE JIM VANCE I KNEW THAT IT HAD BECOME EASIER. ACCEPTANCE HAD SET IN, YOU KNOW? OF -- THE FOG HAD LIFTED. HE HAD A PRETTY GOOD IDEA OF WHO HE WAS. >> UH-HUH. >> YOU KNOW, HE DIDN'T WANT TO DIE. WHO DOES? >> YEAH. >> BUT IT'S KIND OF LIKE, IT'S COMPLETE. HE HAD DONE HIS BIT. THIS IS WHAT I WAS HERE FOR. AND I THINK THE EVIDENCE IS YOU AND THIS SHOW, AND TALKING ABOUT MY HERO, MUHAMMAD ALI, I WAS THERE FOR HIS FUNERAL. YOU WANT TO SEE SOMEBODY THAT MADE AN IMPACT. ARE PEOPLE COMING OUT OF THE WOODWORK WITH THE STORIES AND IMPACT. A LOT OF PEOPLE I'M HEARING FROM ARE THE PEOPLE THAT NEVER MET JIM VANCE. JUST SHOWING UP. HE HAD NO IDEA HOW BIG IT WAS, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? >> UH-HUH. >> AND JIM WOULD PROBABLY SAY SOME OF THE STORIES -- SOME OF THEM WOULD BE LIES OR WHATEVER. SOME PEOPLE WOULD EMBELLISH STUFF, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, THE GUY GAME AND PLAYED AND HAD AN INCREDIBLE IMPACT. NOT JUST FOR CHANNEL 4 VIEWERS, BUT FOR THE CITY. >> UH-HUH. JOE SCHREIBER, YOU STILL LOOK LIKE A YOUNG MAN. [ LAUGHTER ] >> BUT YOU WERE -- YOU WERE A RELATIVELY YOUNG MAN DURING THOSE DAYS, AND SO, YOU KNOW, YOU PRODUCED FOR GEORGE. YOU WERE PART OF HIS SUCCESS, THEREFORE, YOU KNOW, THE STATION'S SUCCESS, BUT ALWAYS YOUR OPERATING WHERE AT THE END OF THE DAY, HE IS THE MAN. THEY BECAME A TEAM. HE WAS THE MAN. SO LOOKING AT THAT MAN FROM A PROFESSIONAL POINT OF VIEW, WHAT WAS IT THAT YOU TOOK AWAY FROM SORT OF THE STYLE, THE APPROACH, THE ENERGY OF JIM VANCE? >> FIRST OF ALL, BY THE WAY, WORKING FOR GEORGE THERE WERE A LOT OF DAYS I FELT REALLY OLD. [ LAUGHTER ] >> YEAH, NOT THE EASIEST PERSON TO WORK WITH. WE CAN SAY THAT. >> I REMEMBER WHEN -- WHEN VANCE PASSED AND TRYING TO POST SOMETHING PROFOUND ON FACEBOOK, AND THE FIRST THING THAT CAME TO MY MIND WAS JIM WAS THE COOLEST GUY IN THE ROOM, BUT DOESN'T TRYING TO BE. >> YEAH. >> AND THAT -- THAT'S IT. THAT'S HARD TO FIND. >> YEAH. >> BUT THE THING THAT MADE IT SPECIAL WAS THAT HE CARED SO MUCH ABOUT EMPOWERING OTHER PEOPLE. IT WAS GENUINE. >> UH-HUH. UH-HUH. >> YOU WOULD WATCH HIM. >> UH-HUH. >> AND HE AND GEORGE WERE SIMILAR IN THE SENSE THAT, YOU KNOW, THEY REALLY WERE REGULAR GUYS. THEY LOVED THE STAGE. THEY LOVED THE WEALTH THAT IT BRINGS. >> YEAH. >> BUT, YOU KNOW, GEORGE WAS MUCH MORE -- AND DOREEN KNOWS THIS, WAS MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE IN WRANGLERS ON A HORSE. YOU TAKE HIM TO THE COUNTRY CLUB, HE WAS MISERABLE. VANCE WANTED TO BE ON HIS HARLEY AMONGST REGULAR FOLK. AND THAT HAS RUBBED OFF ON ME UNTIL THIS DAY. >> UH-HUH. >> AND THE -- THE OTHER THING IS SOMETHING THAT YOU TALKED ABOUT, AND YOU GUYS -- YOU ELABORATED ON, WHEN VANCE BOUNCED BACK, THAT PROCESS OF POSTTRAUMATIC GROWTH AND RESILIENCE, WHICH IS A LONG -- IT'S A LONG PROCESS, AND I'M VERY FAMILIAR WITH RECOVERY AND SO FORTH. THAT RESINATED A LOT WITH ME. >> YOU KNOW WHAT, MAN, PART OF WHAT YOU JUST DEFINED THERE WAS A STAR. HE WAS A STAR. >> YES, NO DOUBT. >> WHO I DON'T THINK -- HAS ANYBODY SEEN OF THAT BRIGHT SHINING STAR, ANY PRETENTIOUSNESS? >> NO. >> LIKE -- YOU KNOW, AND I'M KIND OF JUST -- I'M JUST KIND OF THINKING ABOUT THAT RIGHT NOW, IN TERMS OF WHAT HIS STATUS WAS IN THE COMMUNITY, YOU KNOW, LONG-SERVING ANCHOR, ONE OF THE MOST WELL-KNOWN FACES, YOU KNOW, IN THE CITY, IN THE COMMUNITY, BUT NEVER ANY PRETENTIOUSNESS. AND I WAS SPEAKING TO MIKE WISE FROM THE UNDPEET DEFEATED, AND I REMEMBERED -- AGAIN, GOING BACK TO THE SHOW -- I SAID YOU KNOW WHAT, HE WAS A -- HE WAS A MAN. HE WAS SO COOL HE CAME TO THE INTERVIEW, AND HE HAD ON LIKE A PAIR OF JEANS, A SHIRT -- AND A SHIRT AND A SWEATER, AND A LEATHER JACKET. NOW -- AND IT WAS JUST SO COOL, AND HE -- I'LL TAKE YOUR WORDS. HE WASN'T TRYING TO BE COOL. HE HAD SWAG BEFORE ANYBODY DEFINED WHAT SWAG WAS. >> HE DID. BUT I HAVE A COUNTRY CLUB STORY TO TELL YOU TOO. >> UH-HUH. >> THIS WAS -- I DON'T KNOW NOT -- NOT THAT MANY YEARS AGO WHEN HE WAS GETTING A BROADCASTER OF THE YEAR AWARD AT -- AND IT WAS BEING PRESENTED AT A COUNTRY CLUB. >> UH-HUH. >> AND WE ARRIVED THERE, AND THERE WAS NOBODY IN THE COAT CHECK. VANCE HAD ON HIS TUXEDO. HE WAS THE HONOREE OF THE NIGHT. AND SO HE GOES BEHIND AND PUTS HIS COAT -- HANGS UP OUR COATS. AND A GENTLEMAN CAME ALONG AND HANDED VANCE HIS COATED. [ LAUGHTER ] >> I KNEW THAT WAS COMING. >> AND VANCE TOOK IT. >> YES. [ LAUGHTER ] >> HUNG IT UP, AND THE GUY OFFERED HIM THE TIP, NO THANKS. >> UH-HUH. >> AND THEN VANCE WALKED IN AND GOT HIS AWARD. SO HE WAS COMFORTABLE IN COUNTRY CLUB IN SOME ASPECTS OF IT. >> UH-HUH. >> WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO BE THAT GUY WATCHING IN THE AUDIENCE. >> THAT GUY PROBABLY DIDN'T HAVE ANY CLUE. >> YEAH. >> I WOULD GO PLACES WITH VANCE, AND WE WOULD, YOU KNOW, GO TO AN EVENT OR SOMETHING, AND PULL UP THE PARKING -- THE PARKING ATTENDANT BE ALL -- MR. VANCE. GOOD TO SEE YOU. HOW LONG ARE YOU GOING TO BE IN LET ME PUT YOUR CAR RIGHT UP FRONT. AND HE WOULD TAKE HIS TIME LISTENING TO THAT GUY. YOU SPOKE AT MY GRADUATION, AND THEN YOU SPOKE AT MY SON'S GRADUATION. >> YEAH. >> AND IT WOULD BE LIKE THAT, AND HE COULD WALK IN AND -- YOU KNOW, THE CEO, WHOEVER, THE DIGNITARIES, HE WAS JUST AS COMFORTABLE TALKING -- TALKING TO THEM. AND I WOULD JUST KIND OF TRAVEL IN HIS WAKE. [ LAUGHTER ] >> TELL US -- WE HAVE GOT -- WE HAVE GOT ABOUT FOUR MINUTES LEFT HERE. TELL US ABOUT WHAT IS GOING TO BE THE -- THE TRIBUTE TO HIM, THE SERVICES THE PUBLIC MEMORIAL. HOW COULD YOU NOT HAVE A PUBLIC MEMORIAL. THAT'S GOING TO BE AT -- >> THE NATIONAL CATHEDRAL. >> WHEN? >> SEPTEMBER 12TH AT 10:00 A.M. >> OKAY. >> BUT YOU HAVE TO HAVE TICKETS. >> UH-HUH. >> SO IF YOU HAVEN'T SIGNED UP FOR TICKETS -- I HEARD THERE WAS A WAITING LIST, ACTUALLY. BUT YOU WOULD WANT TO GO ON THE CHANNEL 4 WEBSITE AND SEE IF YOU COULD GET A TICKET. IT'S GOING TO BE SPECTACULAR. >> I CAN ONLY IMAGINE THAT THAT IS GOING TO BE VERY, VERY SPECIAL. WHAT TIME? >> IT'S 10:00 A.M. AND I BELIEVE IT WILL BE BROADCAST AS WELL AS LIVE STREAM. >> IT WILL BE BROADCAST ON CHANNEL 4 AND ONLINE NBCWASHINGTON.COM. >> UH-HUH. SO LET ME SAY IN THESE LAST FEW MOMENTS HERE. IF I COULD GET EACH OF YOU -- STARTING WITH, YOU, KATHY IS FAVORITE MOMENT WITH JIM VANCE? >> MY FAVORITE WAS WHEN WE WENT TO VIETNAM TO DO A STORY ON THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE WAR. AND WE SPENT NINE DAYS THERE AND WE WENT FROM HANOI TO HOE CHI MIN CITY. AND WE WERE BOTH TESTED. BECAUSE AMERICA WAS NOL WELCOME THERE YET. >> YEAH, SURE. >> AND IT WAS FABULOUS. >> THIS IS A CRAZY STORY, WHEN -- MY WHOLE RUN ENDED 23 YEARS AT NBC, GEORGE TOOK US ALL INTO A ROOM, AND HE HAD TO, QUOTE UNQUOTE, FIRE US, GIVE US SEVERANCE AND SEND US ON OUR WAY. HE BROUGHT VANCE IN AS A WITNESS. AND HE BROUGHT VANCE IN AS A WITNESS. AND I REMEMBER JIM THERE. AND I HAD GOTTEN GOTTEN A LITTLE HEADS UP OF WHAT WAS GOING TO GO DOWN, BUT IT WAS JUST SO COMFORTING THAT VANCE WAS IN THERE, AND IT WAS THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME, BUT HAVING HIM THERE AT THAT TIME -- >> HUH HUH. >> AT THAT TIME FOR THE NEXT STAGE OF MY LIFE, I'LL NEVER FORGET IT. >> WOW. WE HAVE TWO MINUTES LEFT. TWO OF YOU. >> ELECTION NIGHT 2008. >> DID HE CRACK? >> NO, NEITHER ONE OF US CRIED, BUT JUST FOR ME TO BE SITTING NEXT TO HIM, AND, YOU KNOW, I'LL SET THE SCENE JUST A LITTLE BIT. >> SURE. >> WE WERE WAITING FOR THE NUMBERS TO COME IN, AND WE'RE HEARING IN OUR EAR THERE'S -- YOU KNOW, THERE'S SOME COMMOTION GOING ON OVER ON 14TH STREET. >> YEAH. >> AND YOU KNOW -- AND -- THE CONTROL ROOM IS SORT OF CHAOTIC TRYING TO DECIDE WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO DO. AND WE'RE HEARING THE OBAMAS ARE ABOUT TO TALK OUT ON THE STAGE IN CHICAGO, AND THEN WE'RE HEARING, WELL, THERE'S A PARTY BREAKING OUT ON 14TH STREET, AND JUST TO BE SITTING NEXT TO -- TO VANCE AND EXPERIENCING THAT THROUGH HIS EYES, SOMETHING HE NEVER THOUGHT HE WOULD SEE, AND I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD SEE IT. >> BRUCE WE HAVE ONE MINUTE LEFT. >> A TEXT MESSAGE, HE IS DYING. AND I'M TEXTING HIM. I HAVEN'T HEARD FROM YOU. AND I GET A TEXT BACK. YO, BRO. HOW ARE YOU DOING? ASKING ME HOW I'M DOING. >> YEAH. >> THAT AND THE -- THE LAST TIME I SAW HIM. >> UH-HUH. >> AT HIS HOUSE IN SILVER SPRINGS. WE TALKED ABOUT LIVING, AND WHAT HE WAS GOING TO DO. THIS WAS GOING TO BE HIS LAST YEAR AT CHANNEL 4. AND HE WAS GOING TO BE GOING TO CUBA. HE SAID I WANT TO GO TO CUBA. >> YEAH. WE HAVE 30 SECONDS, SO I'LL SAY WHEN I ASKED HIM WHETHER OR NOT I SHOULD HAVE DENNIS RODMAN ON. AND HE SAID YOU DO A VALUABLE SERVICE, AND YOU HAVE A GREAT PURPOSE, AND YOUR TIME IS FINITE, AND YOU OUGHT TO USE THAT TIME IN THE MOST VALUABLE WAY THAT YOU CAN. I DON'T THINK RODMAN FITS THAT.
