Diane Sawyer Addresses Retirement Rumors

DianeSawyerDiane Sawyer is on the cover of this month’s Ladies’ Home Journal, and in the accompanying Q+A with Lee Woodruff, Sawyer talks about her future as anchor of “ABC World News”:

I’m still here and I’m loving it. I would be delusional not to think that at some point I will want to step down. And I’m sure there will come a time when people will say, “Her? Again? Still?” But right now my job is giving me the opportunity to wake up in the morning and say, “What if we…?” “Why don’t we…?” “Look at this!” or “Somebody’s got to do something!” Sometimes at the end of the day I’m so excited, I’m sure that I’m bionic. Of course, other days, I’m just spent. I’ll be incapable of saying anything to anyone I see on the elevator [laughs]. We can’t all be like Bill Clinton, where every conversation you have gives you helium and you can keep going until 3 in the morning. Not all of us get to be that way.
