Amy Robach Named ABC News Correspondent
The NBC News anchor spent the last six years as anchor on "Weekend Today."
Amy Robach, who has been with NBC News and MSNBC for nine years, is joining ABC News as a correspondent based in New York.
The expected announcement came Monday from ABC News president Ben Sherwood, who called Robach a “tenacious and skilled reporter.”
Most recently, Robach was part of the Weekend Today team -- she has anchored the Saturday edition of the broadcast for the past six years. She bid an on-air farewell to her Today colleagues on last Saturday’s show.
She begins her ABC News duties after Memorial Day.
