Kimberly Godwin Makes History As The New President Of ABC News

The new president of ABC News is about to make history. Kimberly Godwin will become the first Black executive to run one of America’s major broadcast network newsrooms.

Disney, ABC’s parent company, announced yesterday that Godwin is set to take over in May.

Godwin is currently working at CBS News as an Executive Vice President. “She has top editorial oversight of newsgathering around the world, including the national desks, foreign desks, and bureaus,” according to her profile on CBS’s website.

As the President, Godwin will oversee newsgathering operations, digital ventures and focus on network shows like “Good Morning America.”

Peter Rice, chairman of Disney General Entertainment Content, spoke highly of Ms. Godwin in an internal memo to the company.

“Kim is a proven leader committed to creating a newsroom culture of excellence, respect, and dignity. I have been particularly impressed with her dedication to the mission and integrity of journalism, as well as her passion for diversity, equity and inclusion that has been a hallmark of her career and earned her the National Association of Black Journalists’ prestigious Ida B. Wells Award this past November,” Rice said.
