Subject: Thank you…

It’s been 5 short months since the World News Now webcast debuted. It was an ambitious venture — sharing the rigors and the resources of World News Tonight and ABC News with an entirely new audience. All the hard work by so many of you has paid off and paid off big. We just learned that World News Now was downloaded 1.2 million times — in just one week. A record for us.

Congratulations and thank you.
