Report: Sawyer to take ABC anchor job after 2008 election

Daine SawyerPage Six in the New York Post is reporting that Diane Sawyer will take over for Charlie Gibson as anchor of ABC's World News after the 2008 presidential election, at least according to industry insiders. Gibson took the job in June knowing that he'd step down after that election, but his replacement wasn't named. The choice of Sawyer is curious, since she's only about two-and-a-half years younger than Gibson (but looks a whole heck of a lot better). You'd think ABC would go younger with the next anchor.

Anyway, the article goes on to speculate what Sawyer will do in the meantime. One theory is that she'll take over hosting duties for Nightline, with Kate Snow, Daryn Kagan, or Campbell Brown taking over for her on Good Morning America. But, remember the source, folks: Page Six's batting average on things like this is around utility-infielder level, so take this whole thing with a lump of salt.

Mr. O...

Bob Woodward works for The Washington Post. Are you thinking of Bob Woodruff?

Does Bob Woodward's name no longer get mentioned? Wasn't this his job before the accident and isn't he able to do it again now?

Maybe I missed something...otherwise, shame on ABC.
