ABC News moves reporters

Will file stories with network's various entities

NEW YORK -- ABC News has re-assigned two international reporters to new locations and hired a new one.

Stephanie Sy of the Beijing bureau will move to New York; Clarissa Ward will be traveling from Moscow to Beijing to be the news division's Asia correspondent; and Alexander Marquardt will join ABC News from CNN as a digital reporter based in Moscow.

ABC News president David Westin announced the moves Thursday.

The three will report for all ABC News' broadcasts, such as "World News with Charles Gibson," "Nightline," and "Good Morning America," as well as ABC News Radio, ABC News Now, and

"Each brings individual strengths and strong storytelling skills that will continue to set ABC News apart in the years ahead," said Westin.

All three reporters have noteworthy experience in the international field.

Sy has covered major breaking news stories throughout Asia, and in 2008, her report of the global food crisis received an Emmy Award for Business & Financial Reporting.

Ward has reported from more than 10 countries since joining ABC News in 2007. She has also covered major events, most notably the execution of Saddam Hussein.

Marquardt joins seven other ABC News digital reporters stationed around the world. His experience includes covering the 2008 U.S. presidential elections.
