Amy Robach - P 2012

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.
