Linsey Davis and Whit Johnson have been named co-anchors of the weekend broadcasts of ABC News “World News Tonight,” filling roles in the wake of the departure of anchor Tom Llanas.
In a memo sent to ABC News staffers Monday, James Goldston, the unit’s outgoing president, said Johnson will anchor Saturdays, while Davis will anchor Sundays. They will commence their new duties this weekend. Both are expected to continue their other duties at ABC News. Davis anchors a primetime broadcast on ABC News Live and Johnson works at the Saturday broadcast of “Good Morning America.”
