Latest news: T.J. Holmes & Amy Robach Part Ways With ABC News Due To An Extramarital Affair
Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes are dating each other, due to which TV audiences are startled.
The news department issued a statement Friday evening saying, “After numerous fruitful talks with Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes about various alternatives, we all concluded it’s best for them to move on from ABC News.” “We appreciate their efforts and honour their ability and dedication over the years.”
Despite being initially permitted to keep anchoring when their connection information first surfaced, the couple was left on the bench from their responsibilities at the early-afternoon program in early December.
Kim Godwin, president of ABC News, decided to pull them off the channel to quell rumors and conjecture out of concern that they may damage the reputation of the whole “Good Morning America” brand.
According to Kantar, a company that tracks ad expenditure, the leading morning program made close to $281 million in an advertisement in 2021.
