ABC news president Kim Godwin resigns amidst corporate scrutiny

Sharing is Caring!

Embattled ABC News President Kim Godwin announced she was calling it quits Sunday night as she faced heightened scrutiny from corporate superiors over her job performance — and months after she was stripped of much of her power, sources confirmed to The Post.

“I have decided to retire from broadcast journalism,” Godwin said in a staff memo obtained by The Post.

“Anyone who’s passionate about what we do knows there’s no other business like it, so this was not an easy or quick decision,” she wrote.

But her tenure was tumultuous and she appeared to lose most of her sway when she was effectively demoted in February after Disney, which owns ABC News, underwent a restructuring, insiders previously told The Post.

She insisted at the time she was still in charge following the reshuffling, sources said.

Godwin’s departure comes as Disney corporate overlords have been conducting a thorough review of her leadership, CNN reported last week.
