(Newser) – It looks as though all the moving pieces of the Good Morning America shakeup have come to rest, with erstwhile news anchor Chris Cuomo landing as co-anchor of 20/20. Cuomo, who was in the running for Diane Sawyer's job—which went to George Stephanopoulos—will be replaced by Juju Chang, Broadcasting & Cable reports. He will also continue to cover breaking news, notes ABC.

Working with “my friend Elizabeth Vargas” on 20/20 “is a dream job for a journalist like me,” Cuomo said today in his on-air sendoff. “But it was also a very difficult decision, because I am leaving a special place and crew and all of you and you are all part of my family.”
