Lana Zak Moves to ABC News’ Multi-Platform Team

A new role for a longtime ABC Newser.

Lana Zak joins ABC News as a multi-platform reporter, announced DC bureau chief Jonathan Greenberger today. As part of the multi-platform team, Zak will create content across TV, radio, digital and social media.

Prior to her new role, Zak was the coordinating producer for ABC News’ specialized units, but Zak’s ABC News roots go back to the start of her career, when she was an anchor producer for Diane Sawyer on Good Morning America, when Sawyer was a co-host of the show.

In his announcement, Greenberger highlighted the breadth of Zak’s work for ABC News, stating, “Lana has been integral to ABC’s coverage of many of the most important stories of the last several years, including the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, Diane Sawyer’s exclusive interview with Jaycee Dugard, the cholera crisis in Haiti, and the shooting and subsequent recovery of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. As a correspondent, Lana has reported from Korea, Hong Kong, South Africa and throughout the United States.”
