ABC’s primetime stars mingled with ABC Newsers, many of whom arrived just a few hours earlier. TVNewser hears the 2pm Delta shuttle from New York brought several ABC News anchors to D.C. including Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric (who was actually on the way to her brother’s wedding) and Cynthia McFadden as well as NBC’s Harry Smith, and others.
