News Division a part of ABC’s Extreme Makeover

The NYPost’s Claire Atkinson writes about the challenges and opportunities ahead for ABC which has seen the revolving door spinning for top execs as both ABC News president David Westin and EVP of marketing Mike Benson announced their departure last week.
