Dan Harris has been chosen to helm the weekend edition of “Good Morning America.” ABC News announced on Friday that Harris would join Bianna Golodryga as a co-anchor. His first broadcast was Saturday and the veteran journalist looked comfortable in his new role, no doubt drawing on his decade of experience at ABC.
“In his ten years at ABC News, Dan has traveled the globe, reporting from Haiti, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Ground Zero, South Korea, Israel and the West Bank,” Westin wrote in an e-mail announcement to staff. “Dan’s a remarkably versatile journalist whose interests range from international affairs and politics to technology and indie music.”
Since joining ABC News in 2000, Harris has appeared on “World News,” “GMA,” and “Nightline.” He has served as the Sunday “World News” anchor since 2006. In making the announcement, Westin said that Harris would continue anchoring Sunday evenings until ABC finds a replacement. He will also continue work as a regular correspondent for ABC News.
