The next year, Sawyer sat down with Kate del Castillo , the Mexican actress who arranged Sean Penn's controversial interview with drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, and in 2017 she talked to Ashley Judd about sexual assault allegations she had made against Harvey Weinstein.
Just over a week before Nichols' death, he and Sawyer were spotted at Anjelica Huston's memoir release party. We are mirror images of each other in a lot of ways and how we were brought up.
I think one of the most romantic things is simply the way he reaches for my hand all the time. Her mother passed away Getty Images. In what was surely the most difficult stretch of her life, Sawyer lost her husband of 26 years, Mike Nichols, a month after her mother passed away. That probably didn't go over too well at the peacock. I was a little insecure coming from the sports world to, I mean, Diane Sawyer!
Diane always made me feel that way, but it was a bit intimidating.
Ad of the Day. The judge felt Sawyer was under the impression that what she was saying was true and didn't have reckless intentions, which is why she dismissed her as a co-defendant.

They worked side by side for five years, until Sawyer departed in 2009 to anchor ABC World News she stepped down in 2014 and now focuses on long-form interviews and investigations as an ABC News anchor. World News thrived without her Getty Images. Before Ryan Murphy goes and turns all this into an FX series some day, it's worth noting that the three women speak highly of each other in public.
For Sawyer, adjusting to life without Nichols was likely made more difficult by the fact that they were rarely apart, as Nichols told the LA Times in 2004. With World News no longer taking up much of her focus, the former Peabody award winner has been able to tackle more time-consuming investigative reporting assignments.
Weller wrote via Daily Beast that Sawyer's husband once warned a public figure that they could no longer be friends if they appeared on the Today show with Katie Couric. What happened? What do you remember most about your early time together on GMA? I often feel that way. The Muir-led World News scored more total viewers than than Nightly News during the 2016-17 season for the first time since the 1995-96 season. It marked the first time ever that two women had hosted a national morning news show.
That's dedication. Days went by when I didn't even think of her as being my daughter.
