Paula Faris To Shift To New Role With ABC News

Posted by at 2:44 pm on July 19, 2018

Paula Faris is leaving The View and Good Morning America and will take a new assignment at ABC News. Faris had been a weekend anchor at GMA for nearly four years, joining GMA from ABC”s overnight World News Now, where she had been for a year.

Faris joined the The View panelists in summer of 2015. This season, she’s been appearing on the show mostly on Fridays. In today’s announcement, ABC News president James Goldston did not name Faris’ replacement on either franchise.

In his memo to staff, Goldston said she will “cover the most consequential stories of the day, help lead the charge on breaking news and focus on key bookings,” appearing across ABC News platforms including GMA. Additionally, she will launch a podcast on faith for ABC News.

In an interview with People timed to coincide with today’s announcement, Faris said her decision to step back from current duties came after a “really tough miscarriage” caused her to “reposition my priority compass” and that, as a mother of three she is “excited to get my life back.”

In a tweet this afternoon, Faris said she would not miss the 3 AM wake up calls on the weekend.
