Sawyer Quitting Abc?

Diane Sawyer may be planning to leave Good Morning America and perhaps the network itself next year, the New York Post reported today (Tuesday), citing reliable reports, including an item in the trade magazine Broadcasting & Cable, which noted that Sawyer had retained entertainment lawyer Allen Grubman. B&C editor Max Robbins commented that it was "not a move you make if you're a happy camper." He forecast that Sawyer will jump to CNN. Last Thursday, ABC's Primetime, the Sawyer-hosted news magazine for many years, was turned over to Barbara Walters for the first time. ABC has also indicated that Primetime will not have a permanent place on the network's schedule next fall but will instead be used to fill in for failed entertainment programming.
