“Good Morning America” weekend co-anchor Bianna Golodryga (far left) is leaving ABC News and joining Yahoo! News where she will be news and finance anchor.
The New York Times reports Golodryga made the move for “the opportunity to delve into more detail on topics ranging from Russia to Wall Street and everything in between.” Golodryga joined “GMA’s” weekend show in 2010. We hear she might still pop up from time to time on “GMA” since Yahoo! and ABC News are partners. Golodryga joins other recent high-profile Yahoo! hires including Katie Couric and David Pogue.
>>Update: Katie Couric is happy about Golodryga’s arrival.
“I have long admired Bianna’s intellectual curiosity and versatility,” Couric said in a statement. “She cares deeply about big issues and important stories, and I know that she’ll find the freedom to explore a myriad of topics here at Yahoo both exhilarating and gratifying. I am thrilled to have her as part of our team as we continue to expand our news footprint in compelling and engaging ways.”
