T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach, the dynamic duo behind the hit ABC morning chat show GMA3: What You Need To Know, are set to exit the program in the wake of a scandal involving an alleged romantic affair between the two. The news was confirmed by ABC and prompted a mixed reaction from fans of the show.
Holmes and Robach had been co-hosts on GMA3 since it launched in 2020 and had built up a loyal following of viewers who tuned in to watch the chemistry between the pair on the show. The scandal surrounding Holmes and Robach reportedly occurred when an employee of the show uncovered an alleged romantic relationship between the two.
The affair is said to have taken place while they were both on the show and while they were both married to other people. There have been no formal charges brought against either Holmes or Robach and no public statement from either party were made regarding the affair. However, in the wake of the rumours, both Holmes and Robach announced that they would be leaving the show.
Holmes and Robach’s departure from GMA3 marks the end of an era for the popular morning show, which had become a pop-culture phenomenon and seen a decline in ratings in recent months. Despite their scandal and the subsequent departure of the two hosts, the show’s ratings had been on the decline since its launch.
In a statement, Holmes said that he was “humbled and grateful to have had the opportunity to be part of a show that touched so many lives.” He went on to thank the show’s fans for their “overwhelming outpouring of support and kind words” during “this difficult time.”
Meanwhile, Robach said in a statement that she was “deeply sorry for my actions and for the sorrow and hurt my actions have caused.” She said that she was grateful for the opportunity GMA3 had given her and wished Holmes nothing but the best.
Despite their departure from the show, the two former hosts are still reportedly in regular contact with each other and their respective families. Although their departure from GMA3 may be seen as a scandal by some, it appears that the situation has been accepted and the flow of communication between Holmes and Robach remains intact.
