ABC News has made a number of personnel moves, including hiring a new anchor for “World News Now” and “America This Morning.” The network announced today that it has hired Diane Macedo for the position.
Macedo, who has been working at New York station WCBS-TV, will be based in New York and will be both correspondent and anchor for the ABC programs.
As part of the realignment, Reena Ninan will return to dayside reporting.
ABC News President James Goldston made the announcement in a memo to the news division.
“Diane joins our brilliant number one overnight team,” Goldston said in his memo. “They are often the unsung heroes of this news division, on the front lines of our coverage when news breaks and continually driving the conversation into each day.”
