Elizabeth Vargas

From the L.A. Times:

ABC named Elizabeth Vargas and Bob Woodruff as the new co-anchors of "World News Tonight" on Monday, charging the duo with the task of expanding the reach of the evening broadcast by delivering more real-time news.

When they officially take over Jan. 3, the pair — who succeed the late anchor Peter Jennings — will helm four separate editions of the evening newscast, including an online version and two feeds customized for West Coast viewers. The new format, which will require an additional financial commitment by the network, reflects the effect of a rapidly changing media landscape in which news is instantly available on the Internet.
