What can you tell me about Elizabeth Vargas, her family and her jobs with ABC World News Tonight and 20/20?
—Dot and Jerry Autry, Burgaw, N.C.

Born in Paterson, N.J., Vargas exited the anchor chair at ABC World News Tonight in May to spend more time at home as she prepares for the birth of her second child in August. She plans to return to 20/20 at the end of her maternity leave. Vargas' husband, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Marc Cohn, has recovered from a gunshot wound to his head inflicted last year during an attempted carjacking in Denver, where he had just performed.
