Lara Spencer has been promoted to co-host of ABC's "Good Morning America." She has joined the ranks of Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos on the nation's top-rated morning news program. Inquisitr reports April 18 that Spencer will be making $3 million annually for her new position.
Spencer has been the lifestyle anchor of "GMA" since 2011 and was a national correspondent there from 1999 to 2004. She joined hosting "The Insider" for seven years in between.
NY Daily News highlighted a letter written by ABC News President James Goldston. He praised everyone on "GMA" and recognized Lara Spencer's contribution to the show. He wrote that her "style, humor, and sunny confidence," help make "Good Morning America" what it is.
The "GMA" cast now includes Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, Lara Spencer, Amy Robach, and Ginger Zee. This week "Live with Kelly and Michael's" Michael Strahan joined the "GMA" morning team. He'll appear regularly covering a variety of topics.
A lot of "GMA" shakeups have come out lately. Sam Champion left in early December to host his own show on The Weather Channel and Josh Elliott quit to work for NBC Sports.
Original cast members of "Good Morning America" were able to steal the number one spot in morning news from NBC's "Today." Goldston is still confident they'll maintain the number one spot in spite of the major changes. He knows they have a winning team with personality and substance.
