Filed under: TV NewsSad Sad

diane sawyer leaving anchor job abc

It will soon be time to say goodbye to another.

After Barbara Walters left The View and retired from full-time news work earlier this year, another legend is following in her footsteps.

Diane Sawyer is leaving ABC World News after anchoring the show for the last five years.

Upon stepping down from the role this fall, she will begin to focus mainly on major interviews, reporting, and primetime specials as there's more to be done with Barbara's absence.

To replace her, ABC has moved David Muir from anchoring World News' weekend edition to Diane's seat!

He will begin his new role as anchor and managing editor of the show on September 2nd.

Diane, who became anchor of the program in December 2009, even sent out a congrats to him (and George Stephanopoulos who has extended his deal with ABC News and added the title of chief anchor, which will have him leading special reports and election coverage):

Unless you were born 5 seconds ago, you know that the woman on the right above had an affair (or at least sexual relations) with the husband of the woman on the right.

But as Hillary Clinton gears up for an almost certain run for the White House in 2016, what does she have to say about Monica Lewinsky NOW, 15 years after her marriage was nearly destroyed?

She sat down with Diane Sawyer this week for an incredibly candid one-on-one. And even though Hillz had called Monica a "narcissistic looney toon” back in the 90s, she’s not interested in throwing any more shade at Miz Lewinsky.

Clinton explained:

We could NOT be any more thrilled, thanks to Marie Osmond!

The iconic entertainer, who was raised as a Mormon, has long looked beyond her religious beliefs to support her openly gay daughter Jessica Blosil, who came out as a lesbian at the age of 17!

But now that the fight for marriage equality is STRONGER than ever, Marie is once again speaking out on its behalf, and spoke to ABC and Diane Sawyer about how important it is for our country to secure EQUAL RIGHTS for every single person living here…and why she is able to reconcile that belief with what her church teaches!

Anchors Away! Ann Curry, Chris Cuomo & Diane Sawyer Are Causing A Stir!

Filed under: TV NewsBusiness Blitz

Ann Curry Chris Cuomo Diane Sawyer Moves

The world of news is getting a shake up!

And it starts with many news fans’ sweetheart Ann Curry.

The former Today show cohost is still looking for a news program to call home despite rumors that CNN was trying to woo her.

It seems it isn’t so as new CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker is so Team Matt Lauer as a source revealed:

“Ann has been sainted because of what happened to her [on Today]. The fact is … she definitely can't carry a prime time show.”

Don’t say that about our Ann! She can do whatever she wants!

But at the end of the day, whether or not she can carry a show, it comes down to money as CNN would be unwilling to match her current hefty salary with NBC.

We’ve all known about Ann’s ongoing dramz forever now, but she ain’t the only one facing some change.

While CNN might not want Ann, they do have their eye locked on 20/20 co-anchor Chris Cuomo.

But don’t worry Ann, he wouldn't be stealing your job. CNN wants him for a morning show as a source explained:

Diane Sawyer Interviews Rep. Gabby Giffords On Two-Year Anniversary Of Shooting

Filed under: TV NewsPolitikSad Sad

Two years to the day after a gunman killed six and wounded 12 in a supermarket parking lot, the Arizona congresswoman injured in the horrible attack is making new headlines.

Former Rep. Gabby Giffords was shot in the head and nearly killed on January 8th, 2011, but she boldly refused to become a victim and relearned how to walk and speak!

Now the retired lawmaker and her astronaut husband chat with Diane Sawyer in a follow-up interview to discuss the two-year anniversary and their plans for the future.

Ch-ch-check out ABC's teaser (above) where Gabby and hubby Mark Kelly discuss their new initiatives on gun reform, an especially critical topic in the wake of the Sand Hook shootings.

We're sooo proud of the way Gabby rebounded from this awful tragedy and we can't wait to hear what she has to say tomorrow!

Sandy Hook Teacher Kaitlin Roig Saved 15 Students, Is A True American Hero!

Filed under: R.I.P.InspirationSad Sad

If not for the quick-thinking and bravery of Kaitlin Roig, there is a very real possibility the unfathomable casualty count at Sandy Hook Elementary School last Friday could have been even higher.

When the shooting began, the lovely young first-grade teacher quickly ushered her 15 students into the classroom closet and urged them to be quiet.

In an interview chilling enough to make even the most world-weary cynic cry, Diane Sawyer discusses with Kaitlin (above) the unforgettable moments between when Adam Lanza fired his first gunshots and when the police arrived to safely lead her children outside.

This shooting was masterminded by one heinous villain, but, as details from this tragedy slowly come into focus, we're realizing Newtown, Connecticut is a community filled with dozens of astonishing heroes.

We honor the courage and selflessness of those teachers, administrators, first responders, and classmates who helped prevent even more parents from burying their children this week.
