George Stephanopoulos announced this morning — in a brief sign-off — that it would be his final regular appearance as anchor of ABC’s “This Week.”
It is also my last regular Sunday here at “This Week.”
Thanks to all of you for watching so faithfully all these years, and thanks to the outstanding staff and grew here for making “This Week” the special program it always will be.
Enjoy your Sunday. I’ll see you tomorrow on “GMA” and “World News.”
A full-time replacement has not been named and the program will use a rotating group of substitutes going forward.
In early December, Stephanopoulos said he would not be able to “continue [on the program] much longer” after accepting the job as co-host of “Good Morning America.”
More: ABC tells us Jake Tapper is scheduled to anchor on the 17th and Terry Moran is scheduled for the 24th. The program will no longer have Stephanopoulos’ name in the title and will be re-branded as simply “This Week.”
