Stewart ankles at ABC; Marin off ’60’

Host to anchor 'TalkBack Live,' Cho to step in at 'World'

After two years of working the night shift, Alison Stewart is ankling as co-anchor of ABC’s overnight newscast “World News Now.”

Stewart, whose gig with VH1 also ended recently, nixed an offer to reup her contract at “World News Now.”

Stewart will be replaced by Lizabeth Cho, a Chicago-based ABC News correspondent. She’ll join co-anchor Derek McGinty in the 2-4:30 a.m. shift beginning next week.

As for Stewart, she’ll anchor CNN’s “TalkBack Live” next week. In addition to meeting with other news outlets, she has had talks with CNN. Stewart would fit right in at the cable news net, which recently hired former “World News Now” anchors Aaron Brown and Anderson Cooper.

Separately, CBS News doesn’t plan to renew Carol Marin’s contract as a correspondent for “60 Minutes II” and a contributor to “60 Minutes.” Aside from her work at CBS News, where she also contributed to “CBS Evening News” and “48 Hours,” Marin made a name for herself as anchor of the 10 p.m. newscast at Chicago’s CBS-owned station WBBM.

Marin’s widely praised newscast captured national attention for attempting to return to hard stories in local newscasts. After failing to attract ratings, it was disbanded in October 2000.

Marin’s contract expires in July. “Since there were no slots open at either ’60 Minutes’ or ’60 Minutes II,’ it didn’t make sense to renew the contract,” said a “60 Minutes” spokesman. “But we’re still talking to her. It’s not the end of our relationship. There could be stuff down the road.” Marin joined CBS in 1997.
