Diane Sawyer's 'World News' Departure Sets Off Big Changes At ABC News

Published: Updated:

Diane Sawyer will leave her job as anchor of ABC News' flagship program, World News, during the last week of August, capping a five-year run at the show and kicking off an anchor shuffle at the network.

Good Morning America co-anchor George Stephanopoulos, who was widely seen as Sawyer's likely successor, won't go to World News. Instead, the 53-year-old was given a new job as chief anchor at ABC News — continuing his work on GMA and the Sunday show This Week while formally assuming many of the high-profile duties that the network's main anchor usually performs: leading election coverage, special events and breaking news.

David Muir, 40, who anchors the newsmagazine 20/20 and often serves as fill-in anchor for Sawyer, will become anchor and managing editor of World News on Sept. 2.
