Christiane Amanpour will return to CNN with a nightly news broadcast on CNN International, the new network announced Tuesday.
Amanpour was chief international correspondent at CNN, where she worked for 27 years. She left in 2010 to become host of ABC's "This Week," and will remain a global affairs anchor for ABC News as part of a "unique arrangement," CNN Worldwide President Jim Walton said.
On Feb. 28, 2011, she interviewed Moammar Gadhafi and his sons Saif al-Islam and Al-Saadi al-Gaddafi for "This Week."
She began working at CNN in 1983 on the foreign desk in Atlanta, Georgia, as an entry-level desk assistant.
"Christiane Amanpour has been synonymous with international reporting and with CNN for many years," Walton said. "We could not be happier that through this unique arrangement with ABC News her experience and global perspective are returning to a nightly news broadcast for our international audience."
