ABC News is shuffling its Washington correspondents, tapping Cecilia Vega to be its new chief White House correspondent.
Jonathan Karl, who currently leads ABC News’ White House team, will continue as chief Washington correspondent and a co-anchor on ABC’s Sunday public affairs show This Week, alongside George Stephanopoulos and Martha Raddatz. Karl will also get his own interview show on the ABC News Live streaming service. Karl was president of the White House Correspondents’ Association from 2019-2020.
Elsewhere, congressional correspondent Mary Bruce will become senior White House correspondent, Rachel Scott will become congressional correspondent, and MaryAlice Parks will become weekend White House correspondent.
“It is a brilliant and path-breaking team, supported by our unmatched bureau in Washington,” ABC News president James Goldston wrote to staff in a memo Tuesday morning. “While the past few weeks have been extremely difficult, the heroic and tireless work by our D.C. team across our platforms has been nothing short of remarkable. As we look ahead to another consequential year, we’re counting on their experience, talents and dogged pursuit of answers to help our audience understand what’s happening in the world during this tumultuous and uncertain time.”
