Transcript for Diane Sawyer Reflects on the Anchor Chair and the Possibilities of the Future
flag ship broadcast of ABC where peter Jennings created a signature of such curiosity and courage. It has been wonderful to be the home port for the brave and brilliant forces of ABC news around the world and to feel every single night you and I were in a conversation about the day together. Sometimes as we know there have been tough stories on "World news," but you always made it clear, like me, you believe better will come, that the future is one of possibility. And there has been so much to celebrate here as well, connections, community, America, and the generosity of our neighbors next door. I want you to know none of that will change. "World news" is dedicated to what informs, and we always hope helps make your life better. On a personal note, as I said I'm not going far, down the hall, up the stairs, and I am not slowing down but gearing up in in a new way, already at work on some of the stories that take you into the real lives around us, the ones we rarely get to see. Starting next week, the anchor and managing editor, David Muir will be right here. He is my friend and you are in strong and steady hands. So one last time, it is good to know you are watching tonight. To Mike and the four grandchildren and the perfect parents, look forward to being home early for some dinners again. For gratitude during these years, I thank you and I'll see you right back here on ABC news very soon.
