This Week With Amanpour?

One of the most recognizable faces of CNN appears close to defecting. Christiane Amanpour, a longtime foreign correspondent for the network, is expected to become the host of ABC’s political talk show This Week. An announcement could be made as early as tomorrow, though many details still have to be ironed out. One concern is that Amanpour has made her name reporting on foreign affairs, but one ABC News staffer told The New York Times’ Media Decoder blog that they are confident she can adapt to political reporting.
