Upset ‘GMA’ Fans Want Whit Johnson Fired, Why?

News, Talk Shows

Whit Johnson is the go-to man for absent hosts. He normally fills in when one of the show’s veteran hosts isn’t at his or her desk. On the latest broadcast of Good Morning America, both Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos were absent from the show.

This comes just a month after they both took a break. George went on his Meditteranean vacation with his wife Ali Wentworth. Meanwhile, Robin went on her own European excursion with her girlfriend Amber Laign and their friends. Fans were impatiently waiting for both of the fan favorites to return.

Now, fans are getting upset over the “constantly changing” hosts. They also want Whit Johnson to go. Read on to find out more.

Where are Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos?

Once again, Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos have gone missing from the big desk. They didn’t appear on the show on Thursday, September 22. Instead, Michael Strahan held down the fort with two fill-in co-hosts — Whit Johnson and Amy Robach. The two friendly faces have filled in for the original hosts in the past.

The show has been playing a game of musical chairs lately. The viewers never know what to expect when they tune in every morning. Robin Roberts was previously missing from the desk because she had to report Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral in the UK. Meanwhile, George had to take a step back due to his upcoming Hulu series.

Some fans wonder if his new project is a hint that he will retire from GMA. Both Robin and George were present on Wednesday. They celebrated Robin’s anniversary of her transplant. During the broadcast, she shared her cancer journey with her viewers. It was an emotional moment for everyone involved.

However, fans are getting sick of the hosts switching it up every day. They’re also tired of Whit Johnson. During Thursday’s show, they flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts on the younger anchorman. Some are calling for his firing.

Some of the viewers are sick of seeing Whit Johnson fill in for one of the hosts. This comes just a month after they begged producers to fire him and replace him with fan-favorite meteorologist Danielle Breezy instead. The outrage has more to do with his hosting abilities. They don’t think he’s the right fit for the job.

  11. I think Whit Johnson is great. I don’t see a problem with Whit on GMA or World News Tonight. He is very professional and has definitely paid his dues by working GMA on the weekends and has also done reporting in the field many times for GMA and world news tonight.
    If Robin and George are going to be absent, as much as they are, I think, making with JOHNSON a replacement for one of them, would be a wise decision at this point. He is a great option for ABC to move towards.
    Please keep him on both programs as I feel people will start to warm up to him soon.
