World News Tonight With Diane Sawyer?

ABC insiders “are buzzing over Diane Sawyer‘s apparent interest” in the World News Tonight anchor position, Broadcasting & Cable Flash!es. “Word is that the Good Morning America co-host began contemplating an evening-anchor role for herself when news surfaced late last year that CBS boss Leslie Moonves had made overtures to NBC’s Katie Couric about the CBS Evening News gig.”

A network spokesperson said the rumors are “absolutely not true.” But the trade mag says that “Sawyer’s recent insistence on doing fewer celebrity interviews — unless she’s talking to bona fide A-list personalities — and on doing more hard-news material was interpreted by network tea-leaf readers as a sign that Sawyer was positioning herself for the World News job.”
