5. Katie Couric
She’s one badass interviewer. Her interview with Sarah Palin solidified her status as one of the best in the business. Questions like “What court decisions have you disagreed on in the past?” and “Who are the outstanding Vice Presidents you feel really made a difference?” are so appropriate but has never been asked before.
4. Diane Sawyer
Decent and comprehensive
3. Edward R. Murrow
He pretty much set the theme of the talk shows as we know it today. In the video below, he interviews a young Marilyn Monroe where he perfectly captured the emotions of a young starlet on the brink of stardom. In many years to come, this interview will be often used as a reference to analyze Marilyn.
2. Michael Parkinson
He has been around long enough to master the art of interviewing. Even when he asks the same kind of questions the other interviewers do, he manages to squeeze out a new information other interviews never got.
