Jacques Steinberg and Bill Carter write: “ABC News is planning for two of its highest-profile journalists, Diane Sawyer and Charles Gibson, to fill in on World News Tonight while the program’s co-anchor, Bob Woodruff, continues to recover from injuries suffered on Sunday in Iraq, a person apprised of the plans said yesterday.”

Gibson and Sawyer are expected to alternate in the job. In today’s Washington Post, Howard Kurtz is even more certain: “Diane Sawyer and Charlie Gibson…will take turns sharing the broadcast with Elizabeth Vargas for the next month or two and possibly longer, a network executive said.”
