It must be a morning show transition - tears flowed within two minutes on Diane Sawyer's last day at ABC's "Good Morning America."

Sawyer isn't going far; she will replace the retiring Charles Gibson at "World News." George Stephanopoulos will replace her starting Monday.

In promising a show of salutes, co-anchor Robin Roberts urged viewers to "put on some waterproof mascara." Then her eyes welled up; the two women have worked together on the anchor desk since 2005.

Said Sawyer: "My heart is smiling and the privilege of sharing my mornings with all of you has been more than I can say."

It was also newsreader Chris Cuomo's last day, which wasn't mentioned during the show's first half hour.
