Welcome to 2016, when we can once again officially add a female anchor to the otherwise all-male crop of Sunday political show hosts on commercial broadcast TV.
Martha Raddatz will co-anchor This Week with George Stephanopoulos, switching off every other week with Stephanopoulos, announced ABC News president James Goldston.
“When something happens in the world, Martha’s first instinct is to get there. She is relentless and fearless in her drive to be as close to the story as possible. She’ll continue to report from the front lines to help our audience better understand the world,” wrote Goldston in a note to staff.
Raddatz adds this role to her current duties as ABC’s chief global affairs correspondent.
