Embattled ABC News President Kim Godwin announced she was calling it quits Sunday night as she faced heightened scrutiny from corporate superiors over her job performance — and months after she was stripped of much of her power, sources confirmed to The Post.

“I have decided to retire from broadcast journalism,” Godwin said in a staff memo obtained by The Post.

“Anyone who’s passionate about what we do knows there’s no other business like it, so this was not an easy or quick decision,” she wrote.

“But after considerable reflection, I’m certain it’s the right one for me as I look to the future and prioritize what’s most important for me and my family.”

Godwin started her career in journalism four decades ago and reached her professional pinnacle when she was selected to run ABC News a little more than three years ago, becoming the first black woman to lead a national broadcast news operation.
