      This is the most frequently heard use of the term in the US, and probably the
      only meaning a large segment of the population knows.

      This is a less common meaning.

      This is probably the most common meaning in the US.

      This one is also common. Keep in mind that most US residents would
      distinguish between an anchorman and a moderator, and they would believe that an
      anchorman can double as a moderator, so the two are not exactly synonymous in the
      public mind.
