GMA3 fans wonder if TJ Holmes got replaced by DeMarco Morgan. They noticed something funny about the lineup of co-hosts in this week’s show. This comes after ABC benched TJ and fellow co-host Amy Robach for indecent behavior. The two are in the midst of an ongoing investigation.
Earlier this month, DailyMail.com revealed an exposé about their alleged six-month affair. The co-anchors claim that they were separated from their spouses during that time. Fans noticed that they even trained in the New York Marathon together with their respective spouses. In the meantime, ABC is figuring out TJ’s replacement.
What happened to TJ Holmes?
The network knew they couldn’t allow TJ Holmes and Amy Robach to continue co-hosting GMA3 as if nothing happened. On Monday, December 5, they benched them indefinitely as they figure out the situation. In the meantime, an investigation has been launched into their alleged affair.
TJ Holmes was reportedly involved with a former staffer and a producer of the show. Fans wonder what’s going to happen to the golden couple on the morning show. ABC wants to maintain its family-friendly presence. They feel that an affair would take too much attention away from the show.
The two attracted impressive ratings in the following week. It only became a matter of time before the network had them take a leave of absence for the time being. ABC President Kim Godwin announced during an early morning meeting that TJ Holmes and Amy Robach would be off the air.
Gio Benitez and Stephanie Ramos replaced them for much of the week. Fans loved seeing the two fan favorites together on the screen and wanted them to become permanent replacements. However, it seems like Good Morning America wants to go in a similar direction. They want to have that familiarity that TJ and Amy once had, and are hoping to recapture it again.
Who is DeMarco Morgan?
DeMarco Morgan made his big debut on GMA3 later this week. He filled in for TJ Holmes and Amy during that hour of the morning show. Even one of his fellow co-hosts looked like Amy at a glance, but fans were more focused on him. So far, the viewers aren’t mad about it.

They think the producers had him waiting in the wings. Some noted that the new hunk looked like a model of TJ Holmes. Per Yahoo! Life, DeMarco previously worked as a weekday morning newscaster for a CBS affiliate in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Black Twitter enjoyed watching the new replacement and The Real alum Garcelle Beauvais admitted that she was already crushing on him.
