In a memo to staff, ABC News President Ben Sherwood announced that Robach, who announced her departure from NBC's weekend Today show on Saturday, will join the network as a correspondent based in New York.
Sherwood's memo follows:
I am pleased to announce that Amy Robach is joining ABC News as a correspondent based in New York.
Amy comes to us from NBC News where she has served as a national correspondent and weekend anchor for Today. She also spent several years anchoring morning news programming on MSNBC.
A tenacious and skilled reporter, Amy has covered a wide-range of stories from Hurricane Katrina to the death of Ronald Reagan. In 2009, she scored a major scoop with the first interview with Rod Blagojevich after his arrest.
A first-rate storyteller and broadcaster, Amy will go to any heights for her work, including riding along in a Navy F-18 Super Hornet over the Atlantic.
As the mother of two daughters and three step sons, she will tell you that her family is one step away from becoming a modern day Brady Bunch.
In her new role, Amy will contribute her engaging and high-impact journalism to all of our broadcasts and platforms.
Please joining me in welcoming her to the ABC News family.
