Charlie Gibson Leaving ‘World News'; Diane Sawyer Promoted to Anchor Chair

charlesgibsonwnt-090309Charlie Gibson, anchor of ABC’s World News Tonight since May 2006, has announced that he will retire from anchoring the nightly news program.  ABC announced that Good Morning America co-anchor Diane Sawyer will replace Gibson in January 2010: “Diane Sawyer is the right person to succeed Charlie and build on what he has accomplished,” ABC News president David Westin said.  Sawyer has been a co-anchor of Good Morning America since 1999.

Since taking over the show in May 2006, Gibson’s ‘World News’ has remained a solid second place in the ratings to NBC Nightly News With Brian Williams (7.8 million vs. 8.6 million).  CBS’s Evening News With Katie Couric has stayed in third place with an average viewership level of 6.1 million.
