Does Diane Sawyer want off of "Good Morning America?"
J. Max Robins of Broadcasting & Cable magazine breaks the story to Access Hollywood.
“ABC says she has a long term deal, that she's sewn up,” Robins told us. “We're hearing there's maybe an ‘out’ in that contract.”
Why would she want out? Her co-host Charlie Gibson's upcoming departure to anchor ABC's “World News Tonight” may be a factor, Robins said.
“I think she wanted or may have wanted that ‘World News Tonight’ job,” Robins told us. “She's not going to get it. I wonder if she's a happy camper with those early morning hours at GMA.”
A lost opportunity. A lost co-host and, given that her “Primetime Live” is not on ABC's fall schedule, a lost show.
All three losses fuel the rumors that Diane's time at GMA and ABC is running out.
“If I were a betting man I might take the odds that this time next year, or not too long after, Diane Sawyer is no longer on GMA,” Robins told us.
