Kenneth Moton, the co-anchor of ABC’s overnight and early-morning newscasts World News Now and America This Morning, is returning to the D.C. Bureau as a correspondent. Andrew Dymburt has been named his replacement, joining Mona Kosar Abdi on the newscasts.
Moton started his ABC News career in the D.C. bureau in 2015 as a multi-platform reporter, covering politics including the 2016 election. Before that, he was a reporter at WPVI in Philadelphia. Named co-anchor of World News Now and America This Morning in 2019, Moton led overnight coverage with then-World News Now and America This Morning co-anchor Janai Norman and Kosar Abdi through countless major news stories including, the deadly mass shooting at an Indianapolis FedEx facility, President Trump testing positive for Covid-19 and the 2020 election, and of course Covid-19. Moton also moved beyond the anchor desk to cover major stories including, the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol and the Derek Chauvin murder trial in Minneapolis.
❤️ I’m headed home to DC full time to be a correspondent! Many of you know I was based there before, reporting for our affiliates. For 2+ yrs, I was hopping on that train every Fri and back on Sun! I’ll miss this fun like Amtrak will miss my ridership! 🤣 pic.twitter.com/0rpJI5NMBU

Dymburt joined ABC News just last year as a multi-platform reporter based in Washington, D.C. In that short time he has covered the pandemic, the Capitol riot, the first 100 days of the Biden administration and the 2020 presidential election. Before joining ABC News, Dymburt covered breaking news and politics in South Florida at WSVN-7. In this role he reported on the March for Our Lives movement, Ron DeSantis’ rise to governor during the 2018 gubernatorial race, and even traveled by boat to the Bahamas to cover the devastation of Hurricane Dorian.
