There’s been quite a lot of attention surrounding Good Morning America co-anchors Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes over the past week. The colleagues and best friends faced allegations that they had an affair, after they were photographed in November on a romantic New York getaway, after each separated from their respective spouses in August. The drama apparently got to be too much of a distraction for ABC execs’ liking, and it was announced Monday that Robach and Holmes had been pulled from the program.
An internal call was held December 5, Page Six reports, in which ABC News president Kim Godwin told the staff that the nature of Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes’ relationship had become too much of an “internal and external distraction.” Godwin reportedly said:
Stephanie Ramos and Gio Benitez will host GMA3 until more discussions are had about how to handle the situation.
Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes have apparently been friends since he joined Good Morning America in 2014. In 2020 they began co-anchoring the ABC program’s third hour, GMA3 to provide information about the pandemic. While the co-hosts have always been known to have good on-air chemistry, they were each married to their respective spouses for over 10 years.
