A TV news program's anchorman is planning to leave the station where he works. And everyone there fears that when he does, the show's ratings are going to go down. Later the man is stabbed. Burke goes to investigate and among the suspects is the station manager, the field reporter who succeeds him as anchor, a reporter who gets the field reporter's job, the anchorwoman, the weatherman and the sports man who all hated the anchorman. And it seems like before the man died he entered a number on his cellphone but he didn't call the number and when Burke calls it, but it's a dead end. So why did he enter it?
