(KTVI) – Looks like ABC will be holding off on splurging for a huge retirement party anytime soon. Tuesday the broadcasting company denied rumors that 60 Minutes correspondent Diane Sawyer had plans of immediate retirement.

The New York Daily News is being held responsible for fueling most of the rumors after the paper reported that the 67-year-old may be considering calling it quits. The newspaper cited “personal problems” and “family concerns” as the main reasons for spurring Sawyer’s retirement consideration.

According to Mediaite, ABC rep Jeffrey Schneider refuted the claims in a response to the newspaper’s report. Schneider’s comments takes away much of any weight from the Daily News’ original report by saying the rumors are simply “not true”.

Throughout Sawyer’s illustrious career she has interviewed and worked alongside several presidents, including serving as a literary assistant to President Nixon. During her career that spans more than four decades, she’s also conducted interviews with Fidel Castro, Nancy Reagan and celebrities like Meryl Streep.
