Roger Goodman leaving ABC News

On the heels of directing the Oscars, veteran ABC News director Roger Goodman is leaving the news division to focus his efforts on his own production company, beginning May 1.

Goodman will continue to serve as a consultant to ABC News.

In an e-mail to the news division, ABC News President David Westin wrote: "Roger's profound effect on television news and sports cannot be overstated. He has directed every kind of special event imaginable from the millennium to war coverage and from election nights to the Olympics. He has pioneered the use of new technology through live programming from nuclear submarines, aircraft carriers and, most recently, an 11-car rolling Amtrak train."

Goodman's career spans four decades in news, sports and entertainment -- creating, producing and directing live events on and off the air, including directing ABC's Peabody Award-winning coverage of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and co-executive producing and directing the network's 24-hour broadcast "ABC 2000: The Millennium. »
