ABC replaces Woodruff
ABC News said its leading breakfast-hour personalities, "Good Morning America" co-hosts Diane Sawyer and Charles Gibson, will take turns filling in as World News co-anchor with Elizabeth Vargas until Woodruff can return.
ABC News debuted its new two-anchor World News format on Jan. 3 with Woodruff and Vargas taking the place of Jennings. The network also introduced a new daily Internet Webcast and live-to-the West Coast updates of its evening news broadcast.
But the remake was derailed on Sunday when Woodruff and his cameraman, Doug Vogt, were badly wounded by a roadside bomb while traveling in an Iraqi military vehicle.
