    Who do you think is the best interviewer on television, traditional radio, and Internet radio...

    and why? What makes him/her so good or effective? For example, though the politics of PBS are a bit conservative for me, I have always thought Charlie Rose was the best interviewer on all media. What makes him so good to my way of thinking, is the man's obvious interest in people; the man is an excellent listener who seems to listen with his whole body, and I would imagine he makes the subject feel like he/she is the only person in the world. To my way of thinking his peculiar talent serves the viewing public well. Whose your choice and why?

    I know he's no longer living, but I always thought NBC's Tim Russert was the best interviewer.  He had a tendency to really prod at a person to get answers, but he was always fair, and he never let any of his personal opinions influence who he asked tougher questions.  He also had this great ability to sit back and let his subject say everything they wanted to say without interruption, which is so rare with interviewers nowadays (like Chris Matthews, for example).

    Sorry guess my answer comes so late...I agree totally with your analysis of Charlie Rose....even the way the interview scene is lit-up...all around except the interviewer and interviewee are lit...helping in holding the attention of the audience. He's my favorite alright, but I keep missing the show times in my area.

    At least for the past year I am liking Piers Morgan who's replaced Larry King on CNN. There's a seriousness and a certain humor in which he tries to make the interviewee come out with answers, tho some of his questions are too personal...if they refuse to answer he handles it positively on the show. Also I noticed that he tries to bring in people who maybe involved in current day politics and trending subjects too.
