NEW YORK, Aug. 27 (UPI) -- The New York Post reports Charlie Gibson is stepping down as Diane Sawyer's co-anchor on "Primetime Thursday."

He will continue to appear on the show, introducing his own reports.

"Charlie will be an important contributor to the show, and he's very excited about his new ideas," executive producer Shelley Ross told the Post.

The newspaper cited a source who described Gibson's work on "Primetime Thursday" as "cosmetic" and said he wants to focus on other assignments at ABC, including "Good Morning America" and serving as host for one of the debates between President Bush and Democrat John Kerry.
