Diane Sawyer will be the first network evening news anchor to broadcast from Japan in the wake of the massive earthquake and tsunami that struck the country on Friday, ABC News announced.

Sawyer will anchor a special edition of "World News" from Japan on Monday. She will join ABC's current team in Japan, along with "This Week" anchor Christiane Amanpour and "World News" weekend anchor David Muir, who are already in the country.
