ABC’s Diane Sawyer, ‘World News’ Headed to China

ABC News’ Diane Sawyer will be broadcasting from China next month, AP reports:

Sawyer will originate her evening “World News” broadcast in China from Nov. 15-17. The network said Friday that Sawyer will visit Beijing and Shanghai, and be accompanied by reporters David Muir and Clarissa Ward.

“World News” Executive Producer Jon Banner said many Americans are curious about how China has been able to make changes and continue its growth in the face of a worldwide recession.

“There’s a mystery, there’s some xenophobia around it, and we wanted to explore what is really happening in the country and see what we can learn from what is happening there,” Banner said.

And they want to know what audience members want to know. ABC writes:

So, will China become the dominant power in the 21st century? What can we learn today to compete tomorrow? “World News” will tackle those questions and many more when we’re on the ground in China — from what the Chinese keep in their fridges to what’s on their battlefields.

But before we make the trip, we want to hear from you. What burning questions do you have about China? What issues should we explore?
