GMA fans are livid at Robin Roberts and Michael Strahan. They were in for a shock when they turned on the show on Wednesday morning. Both hosts were away from the desk. Over the past summer, the hosts went on many breaks. Michael had to go on an extended hiatus because he was hosting his game show, The $100,000 Pyramid.
The hard-working man in show business, second to Ryan Seacrest, didn’t take a summer vacation. Now, he’s making up for it. On top of that, Robin just went on a European vacation with her partner, Amber Laign, and their friends. Earlier this month, she said that she was ready to get back to work.
Read on to learn what happened when both Michael Strahan and Robin Roberts were MIA.
GMA fan favorites missing from the desk
The faces of Good Morning America weren’t at their desk on Wednesday’s broadcast. The two co-hosts were away from the show once again. They’ve taken a lot of time off this year alone due to upcoming projects or planned trips. Instead, George Stephanopoulos returned to his desk with the fill-in hosts Cecilia Vega and Whit Johnson.
Robin Roberts hosted the show earlier this week. However, she was missing from her regular chair on Wednesday morning. No explanation was provided. Michael was first absent on Monday’s show. He had to fulfill his role as a sportscaster for Monday Night Football now that football season is back.
Michael was also absent from Wednesday’s live show. Fans have gotten to know Cecilia over the past few weeks. She’s become a friendly face on the ABC show. Cecilia filled in when Robin went on her vacation.
Whit is part of the Weekend Team on GMA. Even though he’s regarded as a newcomer, he’s been on the talk show for the past few years. He also fills in on weekdays if needed. Whit is also known for his role on the Saturday broadcast of ABC World News Tonight and as a fill-in for ABC World News with David Murr.
