David Muir will be replacing Diana Sawyer at the top job at ABC news, but if anything terrible, god forbid, happens, expect to see George Stephanopolous jumping in.
“Both David and George are great, but George does have more experience,” a ABC source tells NAUGHTY BUT NICE ROB. “George would have got the job if he wasn’t already so busy. He is a vital part to GMA’s success and is doing a killer job on his Sunday show. ABC doesn’t want to put those two huge money makers in any danger by replacing him.”
But, George will be reporting world emergencies if they strike. At least for a year or two until Muir is ready.
