ABC Taps Sawyer as New Anchor

Thursday, September 03, 2009

ABC’s “World News” anchor Charles Gibson is stepping down, and the network has chosen Diane Sawyer to take his place. This comes three years after Katie Couric became the first woman to solo host a national network news show, on CBS' "Evening News." Newsweek media critic Joshua Alston says Sawyer's hard news chops make her better suited for the demanding role than Couric was when she got her job.
