NEW YORK (AP) - ABC News "Nightline" anchor Terry Moran is getting a new posting as the London-based chief foreign correspondent for the network.
ABC said Wednesday that Moran will head overseas late this summer. Moran was ABC's chief White House correspondent from 1999 to 2005 and has done many overseas and domestic stories for "Nightline," most recently from Syria.
It's a revived position at ABC News. The late Peter Jennings spent several years as a London-based correspondent before becoming the network's chief news anchor.
Dan Abrams will replace Moran alongside Cynthia McFadden and Bill Weir as "Nightline" anchors.
ABC News President Ben Sherwood says Abrams will also be a chief legal affairs anchor for ABC News and expand his role on "Good Morning America."
