Amy Robach and TJ Holmes are too distracting for the viewers. They’re also bad business for the ABC company. The network could ruin its reputation if they bring back the popular GMA3: What You Need to Know co-anchors. They are still reviewing the situation.
Even if Amy and TJ didn’t violate their contract, the drama is causing “low morale” among the staffers. Some of them had to participate in the investigation, which is pending. The co-hosts are currently planning their exit strategy from the show. Keep on reading for more details.
GMA wants to move on from the scandal
Insiders told Page Six that the talk show wants to move on from the drama involving TJ Holmes and Amy Robach. It has been exhausting for everyone involved. The ongoing review has caused nothing but headaches for its staffers. Some are even placing blame on the way ABC President Kim Godwin handled the situation.
The two still appeared on the show shortly after the news of their alleged affair broke. However, ABC pulled them from the air the following week. Since then, they launched an internal review, which is ongoing. Insiders associated with the morning show said they had enough.
“It’s going on two months! It’s been a two-month tabloid frenzy,” one insider told Page Six. “The place is not in a very good place [to be]. It’s affecting morale — not so much the talent. It’s the rank-and-file — the people who keep the lights on. Morale is at an all-time low.”
GMA employees didn’t find it fair that the duo wasn’t pulled off the air immediately. Kim defended her actions. She told Page Six the reason why she made a delayed decision is that it became an “internal and external distraction.” However, some feel that the affair was already distracting to the staffers.
Did TJ Holmes & Amy Robach violate ABC policy?
People want answers about the internal review. They want to know if Amy Robach and TJ violated the policy. Even if they didn’t, they should’ve been removed effectively, says some of the staffers. The two were allowed on the air for a few more days.
“Why tell people they didn’t violate anything and then take them off the air?” the insider asked. “It makes no sense. There’s nothing consistent about her behavior except the inconsistencies of her behavior.”
Insiders are blaming Kim for the way the situation unfolded. She has been vague about what’s been happening behind the scenes. Even newcomer DeMarco Morgan didn’t know the reason behind his new role. He flew to the morning show from Los Angeles, where he previously worked.
This comes amid the news that Amy Robach and TJ Holmes will meet with ABC’s top execs this coming week. They will work out an exit strategy via their respective legal teams. The reason why the network waited so long is that they want to protect themselves. While nothing has been made official, the two are clearly out of the network.
