ABC NEWS' BOB WOODRUFF TO ANCHOR NEWS SERIES ON PLANET GREEN

SILVER SPRING, Md., April 23, 2008 � Bob Woodruff of ABC News will anchor an eco-newscast for Planet Green, Discovery Communications' 24/7 eco-lifestyle network. Premiering this July, the weekly series will join the network's more than 250 hours of original programming. Each week, Woodruff will cover a variety of subjects ranging from climate impact, environmental policy, political debate and world events. An ABC News production for Planet Green, the series will include studio-based round table discussions, feature stories, and lively debates, making it the one-stop destination for a deeper perspective on the environment. The program will draw upon the global resources of ABC News and its reporting team around the world.

"Planet Green is committed to broadening awareness about the state of the environment and the role each of us can play in securing a brighter future for our planet," said Eileen O'Neill, President and General Manager, Planet Green. "Bob brings a depth of global experience coupled with an unparalleled journalistic integrity to this important conversation."

"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," said Woodruff.

Since joining ABC News in 1996, Woodruff has covered critical world events from the war in Iraq to the nuclear showdown in North Korea. Woodruff's coverage has earned ABC News critical acclaim and numerous industry awards including an Alfred I. duPont Award and the George Foster Peabody Award. He was named co-anchor of ABC's "World News Tonight" in December 2005. On January 29, 2006, while reporting on U.S. and Iraqi security forces near Taji, Iraq, Woodruff was seriously injured by a roadside bomb that struck his vehicle. In February 2007, just 13 months after being wounded, Woodruff returned to ABC News with his first on-air report, "To Iraq and Back: Bob Woodruff Reports." Today he continues to cover stories around the nation and the world for all ABC News' broadcasts and platforms.
