December 18th…

ABC announced this afternoon that Charlie Gibson‘s last day as the anchor of “World News” will be December 18th.

Executive producer Jon Banner posted this message on the “World Newser” blog:

From Our Newsroom: Charlie to Sign Off From “World News” on December 18

It’s that time of year in this great country of ours when we give thanks for family and friends and focus on the things that matter most to us. It’s no different here in the newsroom, where we are preparing to see our very good friend and anchor off as he begins a new journey.

We’ve known this day was coming; Charlie first told us of his desire to retire in early September. As he said then, it’s the right time for him and his amazing family.

So today I wanted to let you know that Charlie’s last day as anchor of World News will be December 18. We’re going to spend a good deal of time during his final week on the air looking back at the stories Charlie covered, hearing again from some of the remarkable people he interviewed, and paying tribute to our friend and colleague, and the enormous contribution he has made to ABC News over the last three decades.
