Diane Sawyer Discusses Her Transition to ‘World News’ with Regis & Kelly

sawyerregis_2-23.jpg“ABC World News” anchor Diane Sawyer popped in across the way for a chat with Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa on their program this morning.

Sawyer admitted that she was nervous on her first day anchoring “World News with Diane Sawyer,” but said outgoing anchor Charlie Gibson gave her some parting advice: “The best thing he said to me was make sure before the broadcast, you spend some time by yourself. just sit and think in a room by yourself a little bit about what you want to do. I think that was great.”

She also told them her husband, director Mike Nichols, is particularly happy about the switch. “He really loves it,” she told Regis. “He said there’s so much more of you now.”

Sawyer and Philbin had a long chat about the time she kissed him on the lips. “It was just one of those issues where two adult people got carried away,” Philbin joked.
