NEW YORK, Dec. 4 (UPI) --
ABC News's Washington correspondent George Stephanopoulos is in talks to be a co-host on "Good Morning America," sources told the Washington Post.
The one-time Clinton White House aide would replace outgoing anchor Diane Sawyer, who is leaving to take over for Charlie Gibson, who retires as anchor of "World News Tonight" later this month.
The Post said Stephanopoulos has not accepted the job yet. In addition to negotiating a salary, he is seeking to re-define the position to focus on politics and hard news rather than feature segments, the newspaper said.
He also reportedly wants to remain the host of the Sunday program "This Week."
