Who will host ‘This Week’?

George Stephanopoulos, host of This Week on ABC, Chief Washington Correspondent for ABC, author of All Too Human, former adviser to President Clinton and co-star of the documentary The War Room about Clinton’s ’92 election, will round off the resume as the new co-host of Good Morning America. Says Politico today.

The article states that Stephanopoulos won’t step down as host of This Week immediately, but a new host will take his place eventually. But who? Any guesses? This Week trails in the ratings to NBC’s Meet the Press, but not by as much when Russert was hosting. It is one of the few respectable main-stream media political shows.

  • ABC Senior WH Correspondent Jake Tapper seems like the obvious choice. He has guest hosted a few times.
  • I doubt any of the frequent guests, such as George Will, Matthew Dowd, Cokie Roberts or Robert Reich.
  • Will they go with outside the box – grab someone from other network / cable channel?  If that is the case, I have a front-runner here. Please News Gods???
