Brian Ross and his longtime producer Rhonda Schwartz, two high-profile investigative journalists, announced on Monday that they are leaving ABC News, seven months after Ross was suspended for an error related to President Trump’s former national security advisor.
“After a great run of 24 years, we have decided to pack up and move on from ABC News, an organization that has meant so much to us,” Ross and Schwartz said in a note to colleagues. “We leave with enormous gratitude for all those who supported us and helped build the industry’s most robust and honored investigative unit.”
James Goldston, president of ABC News, said in a separate note that Ross and Schwartz, had “built a team of the best investigative journalists in our industry” and thanked them for “their tireless work at ABC News.”
It’s unclear what Ross and Schwartz will do next, or if they plan on setting up shop elsewhere. In their note to colleagues, the duo said that “there is much more” for them to do.
