The gang at Good Morning America bid farewell to one of their own on Wednesday. Meteorologist Sam Champion, who had been with the program since 2006, marked his last day on the ABC morning show.
His colleagues gave an emotional send-off to the popular weatherman, as he heads off to run The Weather Channel. Champion’s teary-eyed GMA co-host Josh Elliott told his pal:
I just want to say thank you because it's been a gift each and every day to work with you, Sam. A lot of people talk about our bromance. For me it was just a friendship. I promise there's happy on the inside, but the tears... aw, I'm going to miss you. I love you, Sam.

I knew the moment they took off those purity rings, Satan would prevail. The Jonas Brothers appeared on Good Morning America on Wednesday to discuss the break up heard round the world. Which Jo Bro was most ready to call it quits? Apparently baby brother Nick, who said this to Robin Roberts:
"In a nutshell I said, look, I feel like we've had some complications within the group for a long time. Without addressing them, I think this train will fall off the tracks. Without really getting real about some of the concerns and some of the limitations that we may feel as individuals within the group. It was a tough conversation, I'm not going to lie. It was the first time we'd really had that real conversation and it was a few days of working through it. Now we've all come to a place after a lot of time thinking about it and talking about it together where we feel like we're better suited to do our own individual things, all the things we're passionate about, and choose to be brothers first."
Somewhere, Yoko Ono just breathed a sigh of relief. She can't be blamed for this one. Watch Nick, Kevin and Joe on GMA after the jump! READ MORE
Could Robin Roberts be the next celeb-friendly journalist to attempt a daytime talk show? The Good Morning America anchor tells Broadcasting & Cable no, but that isn't stopping the industry rumor mill from buzzing over talk of another planned GMA spinoff.
From the report:
ABC News has made no secret of its desire to elevate its GMA franchise further. But in a statement to B&C, Roberts said a new show for her is not on the table: "No one is developing any show for me nor are discussions being had to that effect. I am 100% focused on my health and anchoring GMA, now and in the future." READ MORE

Popular Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts fell ill, while vacationing in Key West recently. The TV journalist broke the news herself to fans via Facebook. Posted Roberts:
My heart continues to go out to the remarkably strong people of Boston. We stand by you now and always.
It saddens me that I haven't been able to join my colleagues in covering this important story.
Last week, in the middle of my Key West vacation, I began not to feel well. Nothing serious, just under the weather. I contacted my doctors and flew back to NYC. They felt it best to admit me into the hospital for a few days. Seems my young immune system needed a little boost to fight off "opportunistic infections".
My doctors assured me that this was NOT because I was working or doing too much, too soon. It's extremely common, post bone marrow transplant, to have complications. I'm blessed that mine have not been severe.
I'm feeling MUCH better, and will relax at home for the rest of the week. I'll be back on GMA next week...as my sweet momma would say: "Good Lord willing, and the creek don't rise!"
Miss you and bless you..XO
