ABC News is losing its political director, according to a report by TVNewser.com. Returning to the Cook Political Report as national editor will be Amy Walter.
Walter was a Cook previously, working as senior editor from 1997-2007. She is set to leave ABC in January.
“ABC News President Ben Sherwood announced the news on the network’s morning editorial call,” the piece reports. “In addition to heading up ABC’s politics coverage, Walter also hosted Web shows during the conventions.”
No word has surfaced about a possible replacement, the piece adds.
