According to Phyllis McGrady, a senior vice president at ABC "Elizabeth is one of the most flexible talents I've ever worked with, she could do interviews, and do hour-long specials that make you think, and then she'll do a great interview with P. Diddy. She is versatile".
Vargas is particularly proud of a special that she did, where she questioned, why does the Laci Peterson case merit more attention than two other similar cases, where one of the women was black and the other hispanic. Another one of her stories created a religious debate. Her story was based on the book "The Da Vinci Code" and the role of Mary Magdalene. Vargas stated that for centuries Mary Magdalene has been portrayed as a prostitute by the church. In her story, she also questioned the role of women in general, within the church.
Some of Vargas' other one hour specials have included, "Same Sex Marriages", "Surrogacy" and "It Takes a Miracle".
The positions she holds are: Correspondent for "ABC News 20/20" (replacing Barbara Walters when she retired), Anchor "World News Tonight Saturday" and Co-anchor "Downtown" an ABC newsmagazine which debuted in 1999.
