Matt Dowd to Host ‘This Week’ This Week

Dowd_2.25.jpgChief strategist of the Bush-Cheney ’04 campaign and current ABC News contributor and political analyst Matthew Dowd will fill the rotating moderator seat on ABC’s “This Week” this Sunday, TVNewser has learned.

Dowd is the first non-anchor or correspondent to moderate the program since it began rotating hosts after George Stephanopoulos left the program for “Good Morning America.” It will be Dowd’s first time anchoring a program.

ABC News tells us, “Since joining ABC in 2007, Matthew Dowd has provided independent and fair analysis on issues confronting the country. He has tremendous ability to speak to and understand all sides of an issue.”

Dowd, who often appears on the show’s roundtable, joined ABC News in December 2007 after working more than 30 years in politics. In addition to his role with ABC, he consults for general non-political companies and foundations.
