She joins the ranks of Diane Sawyer, Connie Chung, and Hugh Downs, who have all anchored the popular news series during the show’s 26-year history. About Roberts’ new appointment, ABC News President Kim Godwin said that the industry vet “is a skilled investigative journalist, oftentimes trekking across the country to conduct hard-hitting interviews providing viewers with relevant, insightful information. Deborah is an empathetic reporter, bringing humanity to every story.”

“Once you have really planted yourself firmly into a program like this, as I have over the years, you look for more,” she said.

Recruited by her mentor and news icon Barbara Walters in 1995, Roberts joined the ABC team as a reporter and has worked across several of the network’s news programs, including Good Morning America and The View.
