Paula Faris will replace Golodryga in early August
Bianna Golodryga, a weekend anchor for ABC’s “Good Morning America,” is heading to Yahoo News as a news and finance anchor. In doing so, she follows Katie Couric’s path from network news to Yahoo.
Golodryga, who has co-anchored “GMA” since 2010, will be replaced by ABC correspondent Paula Faris in early August. Golodryga explained the move in a statement, crediting “the opportunity to delve into more detail on topics ranging from Russia to Wall Street and everything in between.”
At ABC, Golodryga had interviewed President Clinton and Warren E. Buffett, among others.
Couric sat down on Thursday with ousted New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson for a Yahoo News interview. In addition to Couric, Yahoo has also hired former Times technology columnist David Pogue.
Earlier this week, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer expressed dissatisfaction with her company’s earnings.
