ABC News fixture Diane Sawyer will present a special two-hour prime-time report this week examining the impact of screen time, technology and social media on families across the U.S.
“ScreenTime: Diane Sawyer Reporting” airs Friday, May 3, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
“Today, American adults spend the equivalent of 49 days a year on their phone and tablets,” ABC says in its announcement for the program. “For six months, Sawyer and her team traveled across the country talking to families, teachers, doctors and even tech insiders to pursue questions, answers and solutions. From coast to coast, a question: People love the wonders of technology, but have they become too consumed with the little screens in their pockets?”
