Diane Sawyer on the ‘Unrelenting Nature’ of Her Job

“ABC World News” anchor Diane Sawyer gives a wide-ranging interview about her life and career in this month’s Harper’s Bazaar. Among the topics on the table: her dream interview with the incoming or outgoing Pope, the breakneck speed of the news business, and the most nerve-wracking part of her job:

Probably the unrelenting nature of most days. We live in a simultaneous world of the stories that we’re reporting for six months, and the stories that come across the wire where you have to jump, so you’re living in three dimensions, and it doesn’t stop—which is also the most wonderful part of the day. It’s adrenalizing, and adrenaline is addicting, and that’s why we’re there—we like it, we need it, we want to knowSo it’s stressful, but I think stress with possibilities and hope has a different effect on the body than stress from being trapped or in despair.
