Sawyer to exit ‘World News’; Muir steps in

Diane Sawyer is stepping down as anchor of ABC’s “World News” in September after nearly five years in the job, to be replaced by her regular substitute, David Muir.

The network also said Wednesday that George Stephanopoulos will add the role of chief anchor for live news events to his current jobs as “Good Morning America” co-host and host of the Sunday-morning “This Week” political show.

The exit of Sawyer, 68, is not unexpected. She will remain at ABC News to concentrate on landing big interviews and doing prime-time specials. “World News” was a steady second to Brian Williams at NBC during her tenure, although the ABC broadcast has made gains among younger viewers.

Muir, 40, has been groomed for the job.

The evening news switch will take place Sept. 2, said James Goldston, ABC News president.
