ABC News sent out a release March 15 announcing a key change to its late-night lineup.

Starting Tuesday, “Nightline” will air at 11:35 p.m. for four nights, taking over the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” spot.

The newscast will continue to solely focus on COVID-19 coverage and the effects of the coronavirus both here and abroad. “Nightline” is anchored by Juju Chang and Byron Pitts.

“Jimmy Kimmel” will move to the 12:05 a.m. slot, which previously stated it will air repeats for the next two weeks.



Separately, Disney+, which like ABC is owned by the Walt Disney Co., has stopped all production on “Loki,” “WandaVision” and “Falcon and the Winter Soldier” over coronavirus fears. The streamer also began airing “Frozen 2” today, March 15, three months ahead of schedule.

The coronavirus has disrupted many TV and film productions. Other TV shows are shooting without a studio audience.
