Muir anchors ABC overnight

Journo to work on 'World News Now,' 'World News This Morning'

ABC News said Wednesday it has tapped Boston TV correspondent David Muir to be the net’s new weekday overnight anchor.

Muir will anchor both “World News Now,” which airs from 2-5 a.m. (ET), and “World News This Morning,” which airs from 5-6 a.m. (ET).

In Boston, Muir worked for ABC affil WCVB, where he was both an anchor and general assignment reporter. During the recent Iraq war, he spent a month in Qatar, providing live reports for WCVB and Hearst-Argyle stations nationwide.

At ABC News, Muir replaces Derek McGinty, who recently left the net to anchor a new early evening news program for WUSA Washington, D.C.
