George Stephanopoulos will remain the anchor of “This Week” through the end of 2013, ABC News has announced.

Stephanopoulous was named the anchor of “This Week” after Christiane Amanpour’s departure from the program at the end of last year. Stephanopoulous, also the anchor of “Good Morning America,” was expected to remain at the helm of the public affairs program through at least the election.

To accommodate Stephanopoulos’ schedule, “This Week” will continue to originate from both New York and Washington, DC, a departure from routine for the traditionally DC-based public affairs shows.
