Gibson To WNT: ABC Swears This Is Elizabeth’s Choice (Because Of The Baby)

Elizabeth Vargas “has asked that we limit her responsibilities to anchoring 20/20 and special primetime hours,” David Westin swears in a press release this morning.

Vargas says: “David and I have been talking for some time about what would happen as my maternity leave approaches. My doctors have asked that I cut back my schedule considerably. What works best for me and my family is to return in the Fall to 20/20 as I raise my new baby and young son. I have loved every day I spent at World News Tonight and have endless respect for my colleagues there. This broadcast needs someone who can give 150 percent — day in and day out. I am not in a position to give that right now and it wouldn’t be fair to do any less. In Charlie, this broadcast and news division has a wonderful and respected leader.”
