Former White House aide George Stephanopoulos has signed on as the new co-host of Good Morning America. Stephanopoulos will replace Diane Sawyer, who is moving to take over the reins of ABC’s World News Tonight from Charles Gibson.
George Stephanopoulos will start his run on Good Morning America on Monday, co-hosting with ABC news journalist JuJu Chang. This pretty much leaves former GMA correspondent Chris Cuomo without a chair to sit in. Cuomo may move to 20/20 as a co-anchor, but no official plans have been announced yet.
We’re wondering if he’s feeling a bit miffed at being passed over for Stephanopoulos. Plus, we’re not really looking forward to Stephanopoulos as a co-host on GMA. His eyebrows are too distracting.
Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts and meteorologist Sam Champion are expected to remain in place. An official announcement from ABC about the shake-up on Good Morning America is expected on Thursday.
