With so many changes at the anchor desk of late for ABC’s Good Morning America, there is yet another change, and this time it’s actually a promotion!

According to The Wrap, Lara Spencer who has been a GMA correspondent since her return to ABC three years ago, has now been upped to co-host alongside Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos.  The announcement was made by ABC News new chief, James Goldston!

And in email sent out to the ABC News team, Goldston cited, “Tomorrow marks an historic milestone: two years ago GMA snapped Today’s 852-week winning streak. And every day since, we have played our game and fought like underdogs, never satisfied and always looking for the best stories and those indelible television moments that make GMA so special to our audience.”

GMA has recently lost Sam Champion to the Weather Channel, and Josh Elliott to NBC Sports.   ow with Ginger Zee , Amy Robach and Michael Strahan (who will co-host on the show a few times a week) the line-up looks to be set for the anchor desk talent.

What do you think about promoting Lara?  And the changes at GMA?  Thumbs up?  Thumbs down? Let us know!

I guess I assume she was already but now that I think about it when the show comes on it only use to announce George n robin, so does this mean they’ll announce her too?? Will she get to read the more serious news?? I’ve seen he sub for robin recently and although I like her she’s not a strong journalist when it comes to the serious news, I think any robach is way better . Lara she stick to pop news or entertainment news and let the pros like robin and Amy give us the late breaking news nationally and worldwide .

Is Robin the next to go?

we can only hope. I am sick of her.(Robin) one of these days some one is going to have to tell her that the world doesn’t revolve around. No matter what any one says somehow it comes back to her. If someone dons’t agree with her they are either wrong or the “jury is out” Welcome Laura! Congrats!
example… Whoopie G. talking about her mom some how turns into “I’m so happy that you got to me MY mom.” or your mom met my mom or whatever. and plugged her book. Whoopie was talking about her mamma and it was time for Robin to keep it shut.

ABC’s worst move ever. Lara is a very self absorbed person who is always trying to steal the camera from the other anchors. Being competitive is good but she takes it to the extremes.

first of all i want to say i miss sam & josh so much & gma has not been the same since they left – to me lara is irritating & just not my cup of tea but that is just my opinion.
gma has changed so much over the last several years – after the first half hour it’s not news anymore just fun, games & pop culture stuff……………………….smh

Wonder how George feels about this. I’ve heard he can’t stand her.
She’s suited for the pop news, but not very credible as a serious anchor.
With all these changes, I’m not sure they will continue at the top spot.
I usually watch CBS in the mornings. They are more serious with their news and don’t do so much pop news. They would never report on the Kardashions, for instance.

WHY????

I read she had a list of demands when her contract renewal rolled around. Personally, I wouldn’t have minded if they’d let her go.

I believe it has something to do with the rivalry between Lara and Amy taking over the news…. Lara is not a serious newsperson….

I think there also much more to Mike Strahan coming to GMA than we are being told….he has amazing chemistry with Robin … and if George spits the hook because of his demands … they have a ready made replacement…

Michael should run as fast as he can away from Kelly…my goodness she is a dope! Listening to her is sickening. I know she tries to be “cute” …but really she can’t even interview well…

Cannot stand her either….seems very phony! Plus, whenever I see her it reminds me of a favorite Brit saying: “She has a slappable face!”

Now that Mal Young is out at the number-one soap opera, that left the executive producer and head writer positions open.  But according to a report from Daytime Confidential, Y&R has replaced Young with two veterans of the soap genre.

Second, Josh Griffith (Pictured here) will take over the head writing duties.  As many know, Griffith had been with Y&R several times in soap career.  He was Co-EP from 2006-2008, and named head writer two other times in 2007-2008 and 2012-2013.

Mal Young Exits As Executive Producer and Head Writer At The Young and the Restless

As many had predicted, Mal Young is gone from The Young and the Restless as the series executive producer and head writer.

Young confirmed his departure from the show via ShowBiz411.com with a statement “Just arrived in London for the holidays. I felt like it was a good time to move on. Never a good idea to get too settled on a long running soap and I achieved all that I and CBS set out to do: improved scripts and production values. I have a project of my own that I’ve been developing and want to pursue that now. Plus running a show like this is all consuming and want to get a bit of my life back – and see my family occasionally!”

Ratings for the top-rated series have been down since Young has been in charge, and in addition, several fan favorites given less airtime, or dropped from the show, while plenty of newbies brought to the canvas.

So, what do you think of the exit of Mal Young from Y&R? Comment below.
