Martha Raddatz Will Split This Week Hosting Duties with Stephanopoulos

ABC News’ Martha Raddatz is taking over half of the hosting duties on the Sunday morning talk show This Week, according to a report from POLITICO’s Dylan Byers. Current host George Stephanopoulos will stay on, hosting the show approximately every other week.

“George will continue to anchor at least half of the broadcasts and, as announced last year, Martha will continue to serve as the primary fill in,” ABC spokesperson Heather Riley said. The plan, according to ABC, is to have Raddatz host the show at least twice a month without a fixed schedule in place.

In 2012, Raddatz moderated the vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI). Since last year, she has been serving as a regular fill-in host for Stephanopoulos.
