Elizabeth Vargas out, Gibson back on ABC News
I sure didn’t see this one coming, but it makes sense: ABC News just announced that Charlie Gibson will take over as solo anchor of the “ABC World News Tonight” on Monday. He replaces Elizabeth Vargas, who is pregnant and will return from maternity leave this fall to co-anchor “20/20.”
Gibson will do double duty on “Good Morning America” and the evening news through June, then leave “GMA.” No word who will replace him. (Will they go with Diane Sawyer and Robin Roberts?)
Vargas and Bob Woodruff were named co-anchors last year after the death of Peter Jennings. She has been solo since Woodruff was seriously injured in Iraq in January.
Why now? ABC wanted to put Gibson on the evening news before Katie Couric debuts this fall on CBS. And he’ll remain on “GMA” in June, after Couric leaves the “Today” show at the end of the month.
