Faces & Names: Sawyer is stepping down from ‘World News Tonight’
Television journalist Diane Sawyer will be stepping down as anchor of the nightly newscast “ABC World News,” but will continue working for the network, doing specials and interviews, ABC News President James Goldston said on Wednesday.
Sawyer, 68, has held the top news job for nearly five years and has been with ABC since 1989. She will begin her new role later this summer and will be replaced in September by journalist David Muir, who is the network’s weekend anchor and works on its news magazine show “20/20.”
