Gibson Retires, Sawyer to ‘World News’: Diane’s Statement

By Chris Ariens 

First on TVNewser: A quote from Diane Sawyer after today’s announcement that she will take over anchoring “World News” in January.

“There is no one like Charlie Gibson and it is an enormous honor to be asked to join the terrific broadcast he and the great team of journalists have built at World News.

Until then, I’ll be getting up early and spending mornings, as always, counting myself so lucky to be with Robin, Chris and Sam and the incredibly smart, talented and dedicated team of Good Morning America.”
