Chris Cuomo is leaving Good Morning America to join Elizabeth Vargas as co-host of 20/20.

“It is a dream job for a journalist like me, but it was also a very difficult decision, because I am leaving a special place and crew and all of you…and you are all part of my family. The good news is you never really leave family,” Chris said during this morning’s show.

The move is just one of several shake-ups at ABC, with Diane Sawyer leaving the morning show to replace Charles Gibson on World News Tonight. An announcement from the network that George Stephanopoulos will be joining GMA is also expected.

Cuomo’s last day will be Friday, December 11th — the same day as Sawyer’s.

Watch video of Chris Cuomo’s announcement and a look back at the past three years on GMA.
