“Good Morning America” senior executive producer Tom Cibrowski has been promoted to senior vice president at ABC News, where he will serve as No. 2 to president James Goldston.
Michael Corn, previously executive producer of ABC’s “World News,” will replace Cibrowski at “Good Morning America.” Almin Karamehmedovic, executive producer of “Nightline,” will replace Corn at “World News.”
Cibrowski, whose full title is senior vice president of ABC News Programs, News Gathering and Special Events, has spent nearly 25 years at ABC and 13 at “GMA.” As senior executive producer, he led “GMA” to break a staggering 16-year streak for NBC’s “Today” at No. 1. He also led the show to four Emmys for Best Morning Show and a Murrow award for “Robin’s Journey.”
Karamehmedovic, who joined ABC 16 years ago and led “Nightline” to steady ratings growth, takes the lead at “World News” as David Muir becomes the show’s new anchor next month. He has reported for ABC News from more than 90 countries and from wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, the Balkans, Russia, Sudan and Southern Lebanon. He has also covered drug trafficking in Mexico, lived among indigenous people in the Amazon, and investigated exorcisms in Africa.
He has won eight Emmys, two Overseas Press Club Awards and two Genesis Awards. The show won the 2014 Murrow Award for Hard News and was just nominated for 13 Emmys.
