Chris Bury Leaving ABC News

ABC News national correspondent Chris Bury is leaving the company, TVNewser has learned. Bury is something of a legend at ABC, having joined the network as a general assignment correspondent 30 years ago in 1982. In the ensuing years, he served as a correspondent around the globe for just about every ABC News program. He became a correspondent for “Nightline,” in 1993, and for a time served as the primary substitute anchor on the show. He was named national correspondent in 2007.

“[A]s I’m preparing to leave, I do want to thank so many talented colleagues for their enormous help over the years,” Bury wrote in an email to staff Monday. “It’s been a good run—through hurricanes, coup d’états, wars, presidential campaigns, scandals and all those quirky little stories along the way.”

No word yet on what Bury has planned next.

Bury’s email to staff:

Subject: Farewell and Good Luck

In the last few days, ABC News has shown—once again—what a great news organization it can be.  For the last 30 years, I’ve been proud to do my part.  Now, as I’m preparing to leave, I do want to thank so many talented colleagues for their enormous help over the years.  It’s been a good run—through hurricanes, coup d’états, wars, presidential campaigns, scandals and all those quirky little stories along the way.  My best to all of you down the road.
