McKenzie was brought to ABC News by the late Peter Jennings in 1980. Jennings hired McKenzie away from Canada’s CTV to cover the Solidarity movement in Warsaw, Poland. McKenzie returned to the U.S. and was a Boston-based correspondent from 1982-1988. He later moved to New York and from 1993-1995, was a correspondent for the newsmagazine “Day One.” For the last 15 years, McKenzie has been ABC’s medical science reporter.
Says ABC News spokesperson Jeffrey Schneider, “John’s a great guy and a terrific reporter and we’re all glad he’s going to be here in the coming months until his buyout takes effect.”
