LONDON - Michael Phelps, after just becoming the most decorated Olympian of all time, will anchor the U.S. men's 800-meter freestyle relay tonight. The surprise decision - Phelps tends to lead off - was announced just before the start of the 200-meter butterfly, in which he won silver. The U.S. relay team will be led off by Ryan Lochte, who on Sunday anchored the 400 frees relay and gave up the race-long lead to French swimmer Yannick Agnel, in a reverse of what happened so dramatically in the Beijing Games.

The death of newsman Peter Jennings from lung cancer could affect the future of television news programs on every network and cable station, as well as test ABC's resourcefulness and judgment as it moves toward naming his successor as the anchor on its flagship World News Tonight. Jennings, whose death on Sunday came only months after the retirement of both CBS' Dan Rather and NBC's Tom Brokaw, was the last network anchor to have been welcomed every evening into tens of millions of American homes, and whenever national emergencies arose.

Long-time ABC correspondent Lynn Sherr and I joined Howie Kurtz for some analysis Sunday on the change last week at the ABC News anchor desk involving Diane Sawyer, David Muir and George Stephanopoulos. I really like what Sherr had to say about it being so important for the person who is first in anything "to not mess up. " And Kurtz is right about where the money and power (what's left of it anyway) is in network news.   #sigshell { float: left; width: 320px; height: 52px; margin: 20px 0px; display: block; }

It used to be that change at a network anchor desk was huge news. Now, with all the fragmentation, not so much. Anchor changes like the ones announced at ABC News today are a real barometer of how far network news has sunk in prestige and power -- though the networks are still making money off the nightly newscasts as they crawl on bloody knees to the media boneyard. ABC News announced today that it is shuffling its anchor desk. Diane Sawyer, who helped make "World News" a more aggressive operation and led a ratings surge that overtook Brian Williams and his sinking NBC News ship, is leaving the anchor desk.

The port of Baltimore's continuing labor dispute, which boiled over in a three-day dockworkers strike in October before a three-month "cooling-off" period, now simmers with uncertainty. Labor peace in the port seems precarious. A contract covering the handling of vehicles and other local matters has expired, and workers voted down a new contract. The union says it won't strike and management says it won't lock out the dockworkers. The only certainty is that the port has lost work, and some of it might never return, port officials said.

Like his coach, Dez Wells has a long basketball memory. His personal defeats remain with him like tiny scars. The super-competitive Maryland junior swingman entered Tuesday's game against North Carolina Central with the nagging memory of Eagles guard Jeremy Ingram scoring 30 or so points on him in a high school tournament in their home state of North Carolina. Four years later, Wells used the recollection as motivation in helping hold Ingram - the nation's third-leading scorer - to 11 points on 4-for-19 shooting in Maryland's 70-56 victory before an announced 9,554 at Comcast Center.
