The revelation of their workplace affair amid a flurry of tabloid and public rumours, two TV anchors for ABC News in the US were fired. The off-screen relationship between “GMA3” hosts Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes has sparked heated debate inside ABC News.
What’s ABC President Made Off Over Amy & Holmes
The announcement regarding Holmes and Robach’s present status on the show was shared with staff members via email on Monday morning by ABC News president Kim Godwin.
“Amy and T.J. will remain off-air pending the completion of an internal review, and there will be a rotation of anchors at GMA3 for the time being."
Godwin also thanked employees for staying focused amid the “distracting” media coverage of the couple’s alleged affair, noting that the ABC News team does “important work.”
“It is my hope that we will continue to focus our energy on what we do best, and I want all of you to know how immensely proud I am of your hard work and professionalism,”
According to what is said, there is no precise timeline for how long the review will last.
How’s ‘GMA3’ Made It Primetime At ABC
The off-screen relationship between “GMA3” hosts Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes has sparked heated debate inside ABC News.
Reports made that “no one at ABC appreciates the way Amy and T.J. handled it,” adding that David Muir, Robach’s “20/20” co-anchor in particular, “wants no part” of the drama.
After it was revealed at the end of November that Holmes, 45, and Robach, 49, had started a covert liaison while married to other people, they were fired from “GMA3” last week.
It is revealed that the couple’s personal issues became a distraction to the point where ABC News management opted to remove them from the air.
How’s T.J. Holmes Life Going
According to sources, Marilee Fiebig, the wife of Holmes, was “blindsided” by the alleged affair. An employee stated that Holmes and Fiebig had been separated for months but were trying to “work things out” when word of his romance with Robach surfaced.
They both got married in 2010. They both have a daughter named Sabine, and the journalist also has two additional kids with his ex-wife, Amy Ferson, named Brianna and Jaiden.
How’s Amy Robach Life Going
Page Six first reported that Robach was close to finalising her divorce from Andrew Shue.
Shue, 55, and Amy Robach married in 2010, two years after her divorce from Tim McIntosh, the father of her two teenage daughters, Ava and Annie.
An ABC employee had earlier stated that the co-anchors’ relationship would not result in disciplinary punishment. But after it became known that Holmes had allegedly had at least two prior romances with colleagues, the network launched its internal investigation.
