“I’m thrilled to be joining the incredible team at ABC News. Being asked to anchor “This Week” and the superb tradition started by David Brinkley, is a tremendous and rare honor and I look forward to discussing the great domestic and international issues of the day,"Amanpour said in a statement. I leave CNN with the UTMOST respect, love and admiration for the company and everyone who works here. This has been my family and shared endeavor for the past 27 years and I am forever grateful and proud of all that we have accomplished

anyone who stands up to AhmadiNejad in a Tehran news conference in June 2009 with half her hair showing, asks a hard question, and when AN beats around the bush, repeats the question has more chutzpah than many of the yes-sir reporters we have seen at the conferences in or out of Tehran.

Good for her and ABC.
