NEW YORK (AP) - The top producer of ABC’s “This Week” with Christiane Amanpour is quitting.

Ian Cameron says the weekend work has been tough on his family and he wants more regular hours. Cameron is married to Susan Rice, the nation’s ambassador to the United Nations, and he’s leaving ABC News altogether after 13 years in Washington.

“This Week” has struggled in the ratings since Amanpour took over this summer as an unconventional choice for the Washington insiders show. ABC News President David Westin said Friday that Cameron had done an “outstanding” job in leading “This Week,” first with George Stephanopoulos and now with Amanpour.

James Goldston, the New York-based executive producer of “Nightline,” will take over responsibility for “This Week,” as well.
