Josh Elliott is leaving Good Morning America!
ABC announced on Sunday that the news anchor of nearly three years has found a new home with NBC sports.
This comes less than four months after GMA lost Sam Champion to The Weather Channel. What's the deal?
Well, in this case the deal was the deal. More specifically, Josh wasn't happy with his! ABC News president Ben Sherwood said:
"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."
The conscious uncoupling seems to be friendly enough. Sherwood finished:
"I want to thank Josh for his many contributions to GMA and ABC News."
Josh will be replaced on the air by Amy Robach, who recently captured America's hearts with her battle against breast cancer. Sherwood said:
"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."
Sounds like it will continue to be a good morning!
