Sample CBS Transcripts, Kuralt's Editing Style

Kuralt sometimes brought his heavy hand to bear on scripts, says "Sunday Morning" Producer Mary Lou Teel. "If he knew that he could improve the writing, he would do it," she says. "If not, he would leave it alone."

In example #1, Kuralt marks up the script but adds at the top that he loved the piece. Not being one to gush praise, when Kuralt told Teel she had done a good job, she knew he meant it. For the piece below, Kuralt exclaimed, “Man, you really worked on this.” Teel still feels the tingle from that high accolade.

In example #2, Kuralt did less marking. [Editor's note: The transcript below is incomplete.]

In example #3, Kuralt rewrote the ending. [Editor's note: The transcript below is incomplete.]
