ABC's 'World Information Tonight' Overtakes 'Nightly News' For Season

ABC World News Tonight (titled since September 2014 as ABC World Information Tonight with David Muir for its weeknight broadcasts) is the flagship day by day night tv information program of ABC Information , the information division of the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) tv network within the United States Since 2014, the program's weekday broadcasts have been anchored by David Muir three Since 2015, Cecilia Vega has been anchor on the Saturday editions and Tom Llamas on Sundays.
