ABC News national correspondent Chris Bury is leaving the company, TVNewser has learned. Bury is something of a legend at ABC, having joined the network as a general assignment correspondent 30 years ago in 1982. In the ensuing years, he served as a correspondent around the globe for just about every ABC News program. He became a correspondent for “Nightline,” in 1993, and for a time served as the primary substitute anchor on the show. He was named national correspondent in 2007.
“[A]s I’m preparing to leave, I do want to thank so many talented colleagues for their enormous help over the years,” Bury wrote in an email to staff Monday. “It’s been a good run—through hurricanes, coup d’états, wars, presidential campaigns, scandals and all those quirky little stories along the way.”
No word yet on what Bury has planned next.
