This theme debuted when legendary anchor Barbara Walters made her first steps into retirement. While she continued to host The View, file occasional reports and host her various annual specials, she stepped down as anchor of 20/20. ABC’s rising star at the time, Elizabeth Vargas, was chosen to replace Walters. With a new anchor, they also debuted a new theme. It is composed by the L.A.-based music production team Transcenders. That company, which by the way also composed the theme to Friends-spin off Joey, produced an entire music library for use during broadcasts of 20/20.
