GMA meteorologist Sam Champion was shut down by Michael Strahan. He called him out for what happened during the latest broadcast. The awkward exchange took place live on television. Viewers shared their thoughts over the heated moment that took place during Thursday’s show.
GMA’s Sam Champion returns
As TV Shows Ace previously reported, Sam Champion made his triumphant return to the morning show. He brought good news with him. At the time, he shared that rain was on the way. Fans were happy to get this news and to see their favorite meteorologist back.
The sassy co-anchor made an interesting comment on Thursday’s episode. Cecilia told Sam that she wants GMA to play “Milkshake” by Kelis in an upcoming segment. The ad shows Will Reeve embarking on his dessert tour across the nation. He’s mostly eaten milkshakes during that time.
Cecilia wants the popular son to play every time the intro comes on. Sam Champion was on board with the idea. Michael Strahan was against the idea. He wasn’t a fan of the song.
“Hear me out on this, I keep trying to convince our bosses here that we should be playing, ‘My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard,'” Cecilia explained.
Sam jumped in and sang: “It’s better than yours.”
Cecilia thanked him for his support. He agreed that they should “start a campaign.” He wants to take it to Twitter with the hashtag “#MilkShakesOnGMA.” Michael stood behind Cecilia so that the viewers and Sam could see his reaction. He shook his head.
“Speaking of my boys to the yard, look at what my milkshakes bring,” Cecilia joked as she pointed at Michael.

Michael Strahan shuts down the campaign
Michael knew that Sam Champion really wanted this to happen. He tried to shut down the campaign before it even started. He warned: “Sam Champion, do not champion that she should play that song.”
Sam laughed and said: “I think we were just shut down. And by calmer, wiser heads than us.”

He still holds out hope that “someone sneaks” that song into the segment. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen as it was business as usual. The song during the intro was “Hippy Dippy Shake” by The Swinging Blue Jeans. Some fans are defending Sam Champion on Twitter.
- “Oh come on @michaelstrahan let @CeciliaVega play Milkshake on @GMA.”
- “@michaelstrahan way have @CeciliaVega back. hard no.”
- “@michaelstrahan is not the boss of #milkshakes, or of @CeciliaVega & @SamChampion!”
What are your thoughts? Do you like the idea of featuring “Milkshakes” by Kelis in the song? Or, do you like the “Hippy Dippy Shake” instead? Sound off below in the comment section.
