ABC names new co-anchor of weekend 'Good Morning America'
ABC announced Friday that Bianna Golodryga will be joining the weekend edition of “Good Morning America” as co-anchor.
It’s not a totally new gig for the business correspondent. Golodryga joined ABC News in 2007 and has served as a substitute co-anchor on “GMA.”
"Since coming to ABC News in July 2007, Bianna has distinguished the network with her reporting on the economy and recent financial crisis," said ABC News President David Westin in an e-mail to the ABC News staff about the announcement.
Beginning Saturday, Golodryga will make the gig permanent. She’ll join co-anchor Bill Weir, news anchor Ron Claiborne and weather anchor Marysol Castro on the broadcast.
Golodryga's broadcast news career began in 2001 as a bureau producer for the cable news channel CNBC. In 2004, she became a segment producer for "The Wall Street Journal Report with Maria Bartiromo." And she began contributing as an on-air correspondent for the network in 2006.
