NEW YORK (AP) — ABC News "Nightline" anchor Terry Moran is getting a new posting as the network's London-based chief foreign correspondent.

ABC said Wednesday that Moran will head overseas late this summer. Moran was ABC's chief White House correspondent from 1999 to 2005 and has done many overseas and domestic stories for "Nightline," most recently from Syria.

It's a revived position at ABC News. The late Peter Jennings spent several years as a London-based correspondent before becoming the network's chief news anchor.

There was no immediate word on who would replace Moran alongside Cynthia McFadden and Bill Weir at "Nightline."
