Stephanopoulos in for Amanpour on 'This Week'

Posted on

George Stephanopoulos will return to This Week while Christiane Amanpour — who hosted the political talk show since 2010 — will become ABC’s global affairs anchor. She’ll continue hosting a daily show for CNN International.

Stephanopoulos will start back at the morning show on Jan. 8, but will still keep his gig on Good Morning America.

Amanpour released this statement: “This is an exciting and unique opportunity for me to take my love of story telling to primetime at ABC News with multiple specials, as well as becoming a roving Global Affairs anchor across all ABC platforms. I am looking forward to getting back into the field to report stories on global issues that matter greatly to the American people.  At the same time, I will be broadcasting once again to hundreds of millions of people across the world with a weekday show on CNN International. This role is groundbreaking, bold and very different!  I am thrilled and honored. It’s been an incredible experience to have had a ringside seat to democracy in action at This Week. It’s been an incredible honor to anchor such a prestigious program and I thank all of you who have helped me on that journey.”
