According to AP— and confirmed by ABC– Stephanopoulos will once again resume his duties at This Week on January 8, 2012. Like Amanpour, he too will have two jobs, as he will stay as anchor of Good Morning America, where he currently is. ABC notes, however, that in order to accommodate his work at This Week, Stephanopoulos will likely remain on GMA four days a week. Stephanopoulos hosted the program from 2002-2010, succeeding David Brinkley.
