The TV network world is buzzing about former Bill Clinton staffer George Stephanopoulos accepting the offer to co-host ABC’s “Good Morning America,” succeeding Diane Sawyer, who heads to the anchor desk of the network’s “World News Tonight.” Journalism Professor Bob Zelnick, a long-time ABC News correspondent, says he sees Stephanopoulos as smart, hard-working, and adaptable to the new show.
“Still, I have this nagging notion that he and Diane Sawyer are both landing with the wrong shows. He belongs at WNT, she at GMA. Watch for a charge by Katie Couric.”
