Deborah Roberts Takes Over As 20/20  Co-Host

As TV Shows Ace reported toward the end of September, Al Roker’s beautiful wife Deborah Roberts landed an exciting new anchor gig. She was officially named as the new co-host for 20/20. She was stepping in as a replacement for Amy Robach.

As fans know, both Amy Robach and TJ Holmes were fired from Good Morning America and faced an intense amount of backlash when news of their affair went public. Part of the reason why the news was so scandalous is because they were both married (to other people). Both Amy and TJ retreated out of the spotlight and limited their social media activity to escape the backlash as much as possible.

Turns out, Amy Robach and TJ Holmes were going to start a podcast together. Her post was inviting everyone to tune in. The podcast would debut next month on December 5th.
