ABC says Diane Sawyer is stepping down as its evening news anchor, to be replaced by David Muir.
The network said Sawyer will concentrate on interviews and specials. During her tenure, ABC's World News was a steady second to Brian Williams at NBC, although the ABC broadcast has made gains among younger viewers.
Muir is familiar to World News viewers as a substitute for Sawyer and has traveled around the country for his "Made in America" series.

After 50 continuous years on TV screens, Barbara Walters is saying goodbye to broadcast news and The View.

Barbara Walters said goodbye to The View, the woman-powered talk show she created for ABC in 1997, Friday morning.
"I may be available for supermarket openings and charity auctions," she joked at the hour's close before going on to mention her interviews of the powerful and famous on her specials and then on to her many years as the unmistakeable head of the table on The View, on which she'll remain executive producer.
This had been billed, somewhat delicately, as Walters's farewell to daytime television, but her summing up sounded very much like a pronounced "I'm outta here!"

Barack Obama supporters had plenty to toast to Tuesday night when the President claimed victory over Republican candidate Mitt Romney.
Also saying cheers to the end of a tight election season: Diane Sawyer?
Amid the nail-biting unveiling of the presidential election results, some viewers of ABC's news coverage were just as focused on host Sawyer, 66, wondering on social media if her political celebrating got the best of her. Her seemingly odd conduct was even chronicled by the Associated Press, which noted her slow speech and the way she seemed to hold out her arms to prop herself up as the election night results trickled in.

The doctor for Good Morning America host Robin Roberts said Friday that her star patient was "energized" after a five-minute bone marrow transplant on Thursday and was now being monitored for signs of recovery.
Dr. Gail Roboz, speaking on GMA, said Roberts, in characteristic fighting fashion, had already sent her an email message saying she "wanted to go home!"
But, the oncologist, who called Roberts, 51, "a powerhouse," noted that the next 7-10 days were crucial for the injected stem cells, donated by Roberts's sister Sally-Ann, to grow properly, ridding her of the rare blood disorder, myelodysplastic syndrome.
"It's not instant," Roboz told show host George Stephanopoulos. "Rebuilding ... takes weeks to months," with a goal of leaving the hospital in about 30 days.
