Diane Sawyer will anchor ABC World News from Japan Monday night. As previously reported by The Hollywood Reporter, her ABC News colleagues Christiane Amanpour (This Week) and David Muir (World News) have also been dispatched to the country, which is still reeling from Friday's 8.9 magnitude earthquake, aftershocks and tsunamis.
ABC says Monday's broadcast "will bring the audience up-to-date on the conditions on the ground and will take a closer look at the efforts being made to help those" in need.
Sawyer previously reported from Southeast Asia in the wake of the region's deadly 2005 tsunami.
CBS News anchor Harry Smith, ABC's Clarissa Ward, NBC News' Ann Curry, Lester Holt, Lee Cowan and Ian Williams and CNN's Soledad O’Brien and chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta were in route to the island nation Friday.
