Kate Learns to Walk on High-Wire

Millions will watch live this Sunday when The Discovery Channel broadcasts Nik Wallenda as he walks on a two-inch thick wire at 8 p.m. ET. They will use a 10-second delay, according to a Discovery Channel spokesman.

Wallenda holds seven high wire world records including the biggest walk across a waterfall when he crossed Niagara Falls on TV last year.

But this time there won't be a safety harness.

Kate caught up with up him to watch him train, and ended up trying it out for herself. "I didn't tell my husband about it until I got home," she says.

    Really? Who cares? There are so many more important things going on in the world! We need to be less "its all about me, an anchor tight rope walking?

    Please get back to the unbiased and thorough coverage of the NEWS. That's what made you what you are. Even world leaders used to admit openly that they got much of their information directly from CNN.
    There is absolutely no reason to tune in to CNN in the morning anymore.
    Shows like NewDay and Anthony Bourdaine belong on FOX or Food Network, not CNN.
