What’s more, George – who was living in Washington D.C. before moving to New York City for GMA – very nearly didn’t take the job, with then-ABC News President David Westin revealing that it took three attempts to ask George to fill Diane Sawyer’s shoes after she left.
“It took a fair amount of persuasion,” he recalled. “When you put things together you don’t think about how long it will last. You think about whether the fundamentals are good. You’re never sure.”
As well as working on GMA, George is busy making documentaries too. When he isn’t at work, the dad-of-two enjoys nothing more than spending time with his family.
