ABC World News with Diane Sawyer

Show Summary

World News Tonight is a nightly news program that airs on ABC.

History:

Harry Reasoner and Howard K. Smith had co-anchored the ABC Evening News from December 1970. In 1975, Reasoner assumed sole anchor responsibilities until his pairing with Barbara Walters, the first female network anchor, in Oct. 1976. Ratings for the nightly news broadcast declined shortly thereafter.

On July 10, 1978, Roone Arledge, head of ABC's news and sports divisions, launched World News Tonight with a trio of anchors. From Washington D.C., the late Frank Reynolds assumed primary anchor responsiblities, while Peter Jennings (from London) and the late Max Robinson (from Chicago) - the first African-American network news anchor - provided secondary duties.

From 1983 to 2005, the program as anchored by Peter Jennings. Following Jennings' death, the program was renamed on August 15, 2005, from World News Tonight with Peter Jennings to World News Tonight. Elizabeth Vargas and Bob Woodruff were named as co-anchors. Woodruff was severely wounded in January 2006 while reporting from Iraq. Vargas stepped down for maternity leave in May 2006 and Charles Gibson was named as permanent anchor.

  • Love Diane Sawyer - hate the Premirum commercial

    8.0
    Will no longer watch my favorite ABC World News unless you remove from prime time, the commercial for Premirum Vaginal Cream- my grandchildren do not need to hear that this cream will make vaginal intercourse less painfull - what are you thinking? We have enough unwed teen mothers giving birth to flaunt this in their face.

  • A very Biased Point of View of the ACA

    1.0
    ABC continues to do a hatchet job on the ACA. Why is this national network continuing to disparage a plan, which if successful, will offer health care to 48 million American who don't have it? Sawyer's comment, " another five year" with a dismal downing-in-the-mouth look did for me. I will no longer watch this station. I did turn to NBC which gave a balance view. How refreshing- my new nightly news station NBC.moreless
  • Granny is tired of the alphabet news.

    9.0
    I have watched abc news for many years (I am 73 ), but I have to bid you people good-bye . I am tired of the one sided news we get . I especially liked you Diane Saywer. But you have to go to,because you have fell in line with the status-quo. I want to hear BOTH sides of the news and let me make up my own mind. You have failed on that point.moreless
