Macedo has been out on maternity leave. She is scheduled to anchor from 9 to 10 a.m., 11 to 11:30 a.m. and 12 to 12:30 p.m.
The changes take effect Monday, Jan. 31, 2022.
Live anchored coverage will be available every day at the times mentioned above, will “GMA3” and “The View” encores alternating on the stream, but these are subject to being dropped in favor of breaking news or live event coverage.
In select cases, Phillips will appear throughout the afternoon as the news of the day warrants it.
Linsey Davis, another familiar ABC News Live anchor, will continue to appear on her live “Prime” blocks and during the evening hours as needed as well, starting at 7 p.m.
ABC News’ announcement comes less than a week after CBS News rebranded its streaming service formerly known as CBSN and overhauled its on air look and programming, though it’s not clear if what sparked the updates.
ABC did not respond to a request for comment about the timing of its dayside overhaul.
Phillips is a former CNN anchor who has become a familiar face on the ABC News Live stream.
Moran has served as a foreign and White House correspondent for the network as well as co-anchoring “Nightline.”
