Another "GMA" Departure!


First we lost Sam Champion at the end of last year and now Josh Elliott has announced that he will be leaving "Good Morning America" as well.
Champion headed over to "The Weather Channel" while Elliott is off to NBC Sports. In a memo from the ABC News President, Ben Sherwood, we learned: "we worked hard to close a significant gap between our generous offer and his expectations … Josh felt he deserved a different deal and so he chose a new path." They have apparently been trying for months to reach a decent deal but that sadly did not happen. Amy Robach will replace him in the news anchor seat: "We always knew that Amy was special and we have all been especially inspired to watch her battle breast cancer with grace and determination. Indeed, she thrilled us with two weeks of memorable dispatches from Sochi anchoring our Olympic coverage – all between chemo treatments. Amy will be a fierce and formidable full-time addition to our GMA team," Sherwood shared. No word on when Elliott will leave but he will be desperately missed!
