Planet Green Lands ABC Anchor
There's much excitement here at TreeHugger, as our sister site Planet Green will soon bring the first-ever 24-hour eco-lifestyle television network into 50 million homes (that would be June 4, for those of you programming your TVs.) The network will be action packed full of celebrities and personalities, and Bob Woodruff is the latest addition. Beginning in July, the ABC News anchor and familiar primetime face will head up an eco-newscast on the network, as part of an ABC News production. Each week, Woodruff will dish on a long list of green issues -- climate impact, environmental policy, and world events -- in a format ranging from studio-based round table discussions to narratives and political debates. The award-winning journalist -- who was seriously injured by a roadside bomb in Iraq in 2006 -- joined ABC in 1996 and was named co-anchor of ABC's "World News Tonight" in December 2005."I’ve traveled around the world covering a wide range of stories, but the environment is one story that knows no boundaries or limitations in terms of its impact on humanity. It affects us all, and I am deeply committed to shining a light on the challenges facing our planet and its inhabitants, as well as on solutions going forward," says Woodruff.
