Can Sawyer Propel ABC’s ‘World News’ Into First Place?

Sep 3, 2009  •  Post A Comment

As ABC News veteran Diane Sawyer prepares to take over "World News" in January the big question is whether she can propel the newscast to No. 1.

"I am frustrated in being No. 2," Jon Banner, executive producer of "World News, told the Los Angeles Times.

  1. Diane Sawyer is a formidable broadcaster. Diane is not the issue here. The right person to anchor ABC’s WORLD NEWS is the issue.
    Diane is valuable right where she is along with her sorties into special features that are peppered throughout the ABC News broadcasts.
    I can’t really suggest who should take over WORLD NEWS. Among ABC’s existing cadre, I don’t see one who is suited to sit where Gibson has reigned these past, all too few years.
    I surely will miss his presense.
