George Stephanopoulos is a trending name when it comes to being a celebrated host on ABC’s news show Good Morning America. Fans always look forward to seeing him each morning delivering the best and biggest stories of the day. However, the famed journalist has been absent from the show for several weeks now. His absence is being subbed by several other ABC anchors and correspondents.
Fans Vow Not To Watch GMA Until George Stephanopoulos Returns
While it’s unclear how long the political commentator will be gone, it looks like fans have started feeling his absence. So much so that many are even threatening to boycott the show until his return to the anchor’s chair.
The 61-year-old hasn’t been on the show for three weeks now, and there are no signs of him returning. Frustrated fans took to Twitter to talk about his absence as one tweeted, “I might be late to the party, but I cannot watch Good Morning America until (George Stephanopoulos) comes back. I’ve been turning the channel for the past two weeks!”

“I have to turn it off when he’s not on!” chimed another.
Fans Are Concerned About George’s Absence
As per The Sun, Stephanopoulos was last seen anchoring the show on August 12, 2022. The TV host has been associated with the daytime news show for 13 years now.
Currently, Gio Benitez is filling in for the host while he is away. Apart from this, his absence is being compensated for by his co-hosts, Michael Strahan, Amy Robach, and Robin Roberts.
George hasn’t just been absent from the show but also from social media way before he stopped appearing on the show. After fans saw that he wasn’t back for Friday’s broadcast, they started theorizing that the anchor had left the show completely.
Fans even took to Twitter to cite their concern as one tweeted, “Ugh Georgey Porgey, where is he! Did he get fired or quit? It’s going into the third week now of him missing.”
Has George Stephanopoulos Retired From GMA?
While George was absent from the show, his wife Ali Wentworth posted a picture of them on vacation in Greece. The couple clicked the picture while warmly embracing one another in front of a pool. Ali captioned the post, “Greece with my Greek.”
Seeing the picture, fans started speculating that the TV anchor might have retired from his post on Good Morning America.
Fans took to the comments as one wrote, “The pics on his wife’s IG page almost make it seem like he’s retired or at least gearing up to retire, sad.”
In similar news, TJ Holmes had also been absent from the show for quite some time. However, he has delighted the fans by returning to his position. He also explained the reason for his absence and confirmed that he was on vacation and was glad to be back.
