He also says of Robach:
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 ... In her new role, Amy will contribute her engaging and high-impact journalism to all of our broadcasts and platforms.
