ABC's 'World News' to take China trip

Diane Sawyer to anchor from the road for three days.

NEW YORK - ABC News is taking "World News" to China next month.

Diane Sawyer will anchor "World News" from there Nov. 15-Nov. 17 to travel from Beijing to Shanghai and "take an in-depth look at what has given China a leading edge while the United States faces a stalled economic recovery," the news organization said Friday.

Sawyer and David Muir and Clarissa Ward will report from businesses and classrooms, among other things. Online video and written content will compliment the broadcasts.

Sawyer and Muir on Friday discussed the upcoming trip on ABCNews.com.

Sawyer has gone on the road with "World News" before. She kicked off her tenure behind the show's anchor desk in December with a trip to Copenhagen to interview Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and has since anchored the news show from the likes of Afghanistan, Haiti, Palo Alto and the Gulf coast, among others.
