Christiane Amanpour anchored her final "This Week" broadcast Sunday morning.  See her closing thoughts to viewers below. Amanpour will continue reporting as global affairs anchor for ABC News, and on CNN International.

That's our program today. And I want to thank you all for inviting me into your homes every Sunday for the past year and a half.

It's been an enormous privilege to anchor this prestigious program, as we've traveled around the country, and parts of the world, together.

As I noted earlier, this has been the year of the people - you, and people like you from every corner of the globe, have made your voices heard.

And it is exhilarating to be able to cover and experience democracy in action, whether old or newborn.

In the new year you can find me off on new adventures, covering global affairs, and challenges here at home in this struggling economy.

I'll be doing specials in prime time, and on all the other ABC News programs.

Finally, I would like to thank the dedicated staff of "This Week," which works tirelessly to get this program on the air every week.

And they'll be in good hands with my colleague George Stephanopoulos, who takes over this broadcast on Sunday, Jan. 8.

For all of us here, thank you for watching. I wish you all a joyful holiday and very happy New Year.
