Diane Sawyer, anchor of ABC World News and a respected veteran at the network with nearly 25 years under her belt, is considering retiring in 2013, a source close to Sawyer tells Confidential.
“She has discussed with a few close friends and some people at ABC that she is seriously considering retiring,” says our insider. “She said she’ll be ready to hang it up not long down the road. She loves work and what she does and has endless energy, but she’s overwhelmed with personal problems and she is thinking about leaving to take care of her family.”
