ABC’s ‘World News’ to Swap Gibson for Sawyer
Posted on Sep 2, 2009
Not so long ago, it seemed like big news that a woman—CBS’ Katie Couric—would be chosen to anchor the nightly news at a major network. Now Couric’s got some competition in Diane Sawyer, who’ll replace Charlie Gibson at ABC’s “World News” starting in January. —KA
New York Post:
ABC has now confirmed the move.
Sawyer, 63, now becomes the second woman to anchor an evening newscast—joining Katie Couric, who’s been anchoring the “CBS Evening News” since September 2006.
