Forrest Sawyer Leaves ABC
NEW YORK (AP) _ Forrest Sawyer, a familiar face on ABC News for 11 years, has left the network.
Sawyer left to pursue other opportunities, said his agent, Arthur Kaminsky.
``For 11 years, he was an important part of ABC News,″ network spokeswoman Eileen Murphy said Tuesday. ``He made the decision that he wants to pursue options elsewhere and we wish him nothing but the best.″
Sawyer worked as a reporter and substitute anchor on ``Nightline,″ ``World News Tonight″ and other shows.
Sawyer’s salary may have made him a liability at a network that is cutting staff.
