ABC News is losing an executive who has been with the news division since 1983, TVNewser.com reports. The exec is Tom Nagorski, managing director for international coverage.
Nagorski, who joined ABC News as an intern on "20/20,” is leaving the company to become executive vice president of the Asia Society, the story reports.
Writing about Nagorski’s work for the network, ABC News President Ben Sherwood described a recent event in a memo to staff: "On a Sunday we all remember last May, Tom was sitting on a plane preparing to depart for an overseas trip when the news broke that Osama bin Laden had been killed. He convinced a flight attendant to open the cabin door and let him off the plane so he could come to work, proving his commitment to ABC News is only matched by his power of persuasion."
Nagorski’s last day will be Sept. 13.
