ABC is going green! The network has just announced plans to offer up a half hour show focusing on environmental news, hosted by Bob Woodruff, previously of ABC News:

It will offer “in-depth news for half an hour every week,” said Woodruff in a statement Wednesday — “arguments and controversies, scientific analysis and breaking international news.”

It will be produced by ABC News, where Woodruff, 46, has been a correspondent since 1996.

“I’ve traveled around the world covering a wide range of stories,” said Woodruff, “but the environment is one story that knows no boundaries or limitations in terms of its impact on humanity.”

After serving as a chief anchor at ABC for less than a month, Woodruff in January 2006 suffered a serious brain injury from a roadside blast in Iraq. He returned to the job 13 months later, and recently won a Peabody Award for his series “Wounds of War — The Long Road Home of Our Nation’s Veterans.”
