Diane Sawyer took a minute out of “World News” Monday evening to give a special shoutout to one of her youngest viewers, two-year-old Malena.
“Tonight on this holiday, I’d love the chance to say hello to a friend who says hello to me every night, even though she is only two years old,” Sawyer said at the end of the broadcast. “That is Malena from Illinois — my favorite new star of YouTube. So Malena, hello to you, and goodnight.”
