NEW YORK (AP) — ABC News “Nightline” anchor Terry Moran is getting a new posting as the network’s London-based chief foreign correspondent.
Moran will head overseas late this summer, ABC said Wednesday. Moran was ABC’s chief White House correspondent from 1999 to 2005 and has done many overseas and domestic stories for “Nightline,” most recently from Syria.
It’s a revived position at ABC News. The late Peter Jennings spent several years as a London-based correspondent before becoming the network’s chief news anchor.
Dan Abrams will replace Moran alongside Cynthia McFadden and Bill Weir as “Nightline” anchors.
Abrams will also be a chief legal affairs anchor for ABC News and expand his role on “Good Morning America,” ABC News President Ben Sherwood said.
Abrams is a former general manager and show host at MSNBC and a legal correspondent for NBC’s “Nightly News.”
Abrams will be stepping back from daily operations at Abrams Media, a network of websites he founded that includes Mediaite, to devote more time to ABC News, Sherwood said.
