It’s not goodbye. It’s “we’ll see you later!”

Diane Sawyer is stepping down from anchoring ABC’s World News to take on a new role with the network - covering in-depth specials and stories, much like the now retired Barbara Walters once did!

The 68-year-old journalist (damn, gurl!) addressed her departure from the news desk on the program last night, saying:

“At the end of the summer, I’m going to be moving to a new role at the network. Full-time, flat out, of doing the reporting I love, from around the world and in-depth specials on the stories that matter so much to all our lives.”

Then Diane introduced viewers to the tall drink of water who will be taking her place!

David Muir!

    I would bet she got forced out. I don't think she would willingly step down just yet.
