"I have no announcements to make," she said. “Nothing is going on. Even though our programs have been original, they have been taped, so we have not commented. There were many reports last week saying that I was retiring from ABC, and there was an assumption that I would be making an announcement today."
She continued, "However, here I am, and I have no announcements to make [ applause ]. But I do want to say this, that if and when I might have an announcement to make, I would do it on this program, I promise, and the paparazzi guys, you will be the last to know.”
