ABC News taps ‘World’ anchor

David Muir sole anchor on weekend editions

David Muir has been named sole anchor of ABC News’ weekend editions of “World News.” Show is now officially “World News With David Muir,” mirroring “World News With Diane Sawyer” on weekdays, and marking the first time an anchor has been given a titled lead on the net’s weekend “World News” shows.

The bump up comes on the heels of Muir’s reporting from Cairo for the show, which ABC News topper Ben Sherwood said “illustrates (Muir’s) passion for journalism and his exceptional abilities in the field” in a memo to staff sent out Monday morning. Muir will continue as correspondent contributing to all ABC News broadcasts and platforms.
