Disney names Ben Sherwood to succeed Anne Sweeney
In October 2011, ABC News launched a ground-breaking partnership with Yahoo! to create the #1 news and information network online, reaching nearly 100 million people and serving up to half a billion videos a month. The online network has been on top for the past 25 months and counting.
ABC News reached an historic milestone in 2012 when Good Morning America snapped NBC’s 16-year winning streak in the mornings to become America’s #1 morning program, a title the show still holds today.
In 2013, ABC News and Univision launched Fusion, a joint news and lifestyle network to serve and empower U.S. Hispanics, the youngest and fastest growing demographic in America.
Sherwood launched his journalistic career when he joined ABC News in 1989, serving as an investigative associate producer and producer for ABC News’ PrimeTime Live with anchors Diane Sawyer and Sam Donaldson. In 1997, Mr. Sherwood joined NBC’s Nightly News with Tom Brokaw as broadcast producer responsible for “In Depth” reports, then senior producer, and ultimately senior broadcast producer.
Sherwood returned to ABC News in April 2004 as executive producer of the network’s award-winning morning program, Good Morning America. Sherwood guided GMA to ratings success, attracting new viewers while overseeing prize-winning coverage of the tsunami in Southeast Asia, the devastation of Hurricane Katrina and the presidential election of 2004.
