But ABC denies that Diane Sawyer (67), – the first female correspondent for ’60 Minutes’ – is packing it in.
The rumors of Diane Sawyer’s retirement from ABC and TV were started by the New York Daily News (NYDN), which claimed she was ready to turn off the microphone and enjoy retirement.
The paper printed a paragraph citing an insider who reportedly is close to Diane Sawyer:
“She has discussed with a few close friends and some people at ABC that she is seriously considering retiring … She said she’ll be ready to hang it up not long down the road. She loves work and what she does and has endless energy, but she’s overwhelmed with personal problems and she is thinking about leaving to take care of her family.”
The rumors have been firmly stamped in the ground by Jeffrey Schneider, SVP at ABC News, who not only refuted the claim but insinuated that the NYDN did not live up to their fact checking duties in running the gossip:
“That is not true. And had the Daily News actually asked us if Diane was considering retiring we would have told them yesterday that it wasn’t true.”
Based on that strong statement, it seems that Diane Sawyer will be leaving her mic on for still some time to come.
