It has been announced that Sawyer is set to step away from the “World News” broadcast on September 2, to focus on a new project that will allow her to focus on big issues and create new, innovative specials.

In a statement made after the announcement, ABC News President, James Goldston, applauded Sawyer’s skills and her time spent in the various roles she has held at ABC.

It’s unclear exactly what role Sawyer will have going forward but I’m sure she will succeed with whatever she does. She has been a pioneer for woman journalists and a true role model to so many young girls, through the years!

George Stephanopoulos will become the lead anchor for all breaking news coverage, such as election nights but, David Muir has been named Diane Sawyer’s successor as the daily ‘ABC World News’ anchor.
