On a special two-hour episode of ABC 20/20, Diane Sawyer interviews fellow ABC News correspondent Elizabeth Vargas. Vargas will discuss her battle with alcoholism and anxiety and how meditation has helped her to recover. Vargas reveals to Sawyer: “That nightly wine was turning small brush fires of anxiety into bonfires of panic.” During her battle with alcoholism, Vargas was married to singer/songwriter Marc Cohn for 12 years. They have two sons, Zachary, 13, and Samuel, 10. In August 2014, less than a year after Vargas’ second rehab admission, it was announced that the couple were divorcing.
Mark Cohn is the Grammy Award-winning musician best known for his 1991 song “Walking in Memphis”. Before breaking out on his own, Cohn was a backing pianist for singer Tracy Chapman on her second album Crossroads. On his own, while on a concert tour with Suzanne Vega in 2005, Cohn was shot in the head during a failed carjacking attempt in Denver. (The bullet was removed; Cohn survived.) Cohn released his eighth album in March 2016, Careful What You Dream: Lost Songs and Rarities. ABC 20/20 airs Fridays at 9pm.
