On December 22, 2017, Vargas announced she was leaving ABC News in May 2018. Her last day at ABC News was on May 25, 2018. She broadcast her first investigative documentary series on A&E, Cults & Extreme Belief, in May 2018. Vargas now hosts a series on A&E, Cults & Extreme Belief. Vargas and others interview former members of organizations considered cults, talking to them about how they became involved and their allegations of abuse.

In 2016, Vargas wrote her memoir Between Breaths: A Memoir of Panic and Addiction. It was published by Grand Central Publishing on 13 September and became an instant New York Times and USA Today best seller.


Vargas was introduced to Transcendental Meditation in 2014 by fellow ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos.


On November 6, 2013, ABC confirmed a New York Daily News story that Vargas was undergoing treatment for alcoholism. “I am dealing with addiction,” Vargas said. After her second rehab admission, on January 24, 2014, Vargas described herself as an alcoholic.


On May 23, 2006, Vargas announced her resignation from World News Tonight. Gibson was then named sole anchor of the show, effective from May 29, 2006, replacing Vargas and Woodruff. To explain the sudden change, Vargas cited her doctors’ recommendation to cut back her schedule considerably owing to a difficult pregnancy and her wish to spend more time with her new baby when he arrived. Most “inside accounts”, however, said she fully expected and wished to return to the anchor chair soon after giving birth, but Gibson threatened to quit ABC News if he was not made sole permanent anchor. According to these sources, his gambit succeeded and she was left embittered, although not enough to sever ties with the network. In late 2006, Vargas returned as co-anchor of 20/20 and primary host of ABC News specials. In 2009, Vargas hosted a special television event entitled “Elvis: Viva Las Vegas” that explored Elvis’ triumph in Vegas and his artistic legacy, which featured performances and interviews with various stars, including Paul McCartney, Beyonce, Dwayne Johnson, Faith Hill, David Lynch, Jon Bon Jovi, Celine Dion, and Priscilla Presley. (Retrieved from 2009 DVD documentary “Elvis: Viva Las Vegas.”) In a special edition of 20/20 that aired September 9, 2016, Vargas opened up about her struggles with anxiety and alcoholism and further talked about her upcoming book Between Breaths: A Memoir of Panic and Addiction, which discusses those struggles.


In April 2005, Vargas and Charles Gibson temporarily filled in for Peter Jennings, who was receiving chemotherapy for his lung cancer, on World News Tonight until Jennings’s death in August. After a period of mourning and indecision, she and Bob Woodruff were chosen as co-anchors on December 5, 2005. She anchored many broadcasts alone after Bob Woodruff’s injury in Iraq in January 2006. She also co-anchored World News Tonight with either Charles Gibson or Diane Sawyer.


On July 20, 2002, Vargas married singer-songwriter Marc Cohn, after three years of dating. They have two sons. Vargas also has two stepchildren, Max and Emily, from Cohn’s first marriage. In August 2014, Entertainment Tonight reported that Vargas and Cohn were divorcing after 12 years of marriage.


Vargas was the first national evening news anchor of Puerto Rican and Irish-American heritage and also the third female anchor of a network evening newscast in the U.S. since Connie Chung and Barbara Walters. She is said to be particularly proud of an ABC special report in which she questioned why the Laci Peterson case merited more attention than two other similar cases, one involving a black woman and the other involving a Hispanic woman. Another story she did, based on the book The Da Vinci Code and the role of Mary Magdalene, helped fuel a nationwide religious debate. Vargas stated that for centuries Mary Magdalene has been portrayed as a prostitute by the church despite evidence to the contrary. She went on to question the strictly limited role of women within the church. In 1999, she won an Emmy Award for her coverage of the Elián González story, and in 1998 she was nominated for an Emmy Award for her 20/20 investigation into the wrongful conviction of Betty Tyson.
