Christiane Amanpour (AH'-mahn-pohr) logs her first day as host of ABC's "This Week."
Amanpour is now in place on the Sunday political talk show, which competes with NBC's "Meet the Press," CBS' "Face the Nation" and "Fox News Sunday." She is replacing George Stephanopoulos (stehf-uh-NAHP'-uh-luhs), who moved to ABC's "Good Morning America" late last year.
Guests on her first broadcast were Speaker of The House Nancy Pelosi and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates.
Amanpour was a surprise hire by ABC after spending a quarter-century at CNN.
Jake Tapper filled in as "This Week" host after Stephanopoulos' exit.
ABC is owned by The Walt Disney Co.
