ABC News has rebuffed a report in Broadcasting & Cable (which has awesome swimsuit issues, I must point out) that Diane Sawyer is lobbying to exit Good Morning America to become the permanent replacement for the late Peter Jennings on World News Tonight. "She is not a candidate," says a spokesperson for the news division. Since Jennings' passing, GMA's Charles Gibson and 20/20's Elizabeth Vargas have been sharing World News anchor duties.
