Diane Sawyer Announces Retirement From ABC’s “World News”
With credits that include “Good Morning America” and “Primetime,” Diane Sawyer has seen all kinds of stories in her long and successful journalistic career.
And this week the 68-year-old anchor has announced she’ll be stepping down from her post at ABC’s “World News” later this fall.
As a result, “World News” weekend edition star David Muir will take the reins and George Stephanopoulos will step up to become chief anchor at ABC News.
Sawyer’s departure comes at a positive time for “World News,” as the program has been beating Brian Williams’ “Nightly News” ever since May sweeps.
