Amy Robach Joins ABC News

ABC News President Ben Sherwood sent the following note to staff on Monday, May 21: 

From: Ben Sherwood To: ABC TV News ALL Subject: Amy Robach

I am pleased to announce that Amy Robach is joining ABC News as a correspondent based in New York.

Amy comes to us from NBC News where she has served as a national correspondent and weekend anchor for Today. She also spent several years anchoring morning news programming on MSNBC.

A tenacious and skilled reporter, Amy has covered a wide-range of stories from Hurricane Katrina to the death of Ronald Reagan. In 2009, she scored a major scoop with the first interview with Rod Blagojevich after his arrest.

A first-rate storyteller and broadcaster, Amy will go to any heights for her work, including riding along in a Navy F-18 Super Hornet over the Atlantic.

As the mother of two daughters and three step sons, she will tell you that her family is one step away from becoming a modern day Brady Bunch.

In her new role, Amy will contribute her engaging and  high-impact journalism to all of our broadcasts and platforms.

Please joining me in welcoming her to the ABC News family.
