NEW YORK, June 19 (UPI) -- Dan Abrams has been named "Nightline" anchor and chief legal affairs anchor for ABC News, the U.S. television network said Wednesday.
"In his new role Dan will continue his regular legal segments on 'Good Morning America,' show us a whole new side of his talents with a new branded 'GMA' segment on a wide range of topics, and join the other 'Nightline' anchors on ABC's 'The Lookout,'" ABC News President Ben Sherwood said in an email to the network's news division.
"For nearly two decades Dan has delivered clear, incisive and intelligent analysis on television. He joined ABC News in 2011, and his sharp legal insights immediately had a huge impact on how we understand major court cases and complicated legal questions from Casey Anthony and Jodi Arias to George Zimmerman and the Boston Marathon bombing."
Abrams, 47, previously worked for NBC News.
