With just four weeks to go, the news anchor’s agents are reportedly still millions of dollars apart as they try to finalize a deal to keep him at the morning desk along with Robin Roberts, George Stephanapoulos and Lara Spencer.
“He wants $8 million, while ABC is offering $4 million,” a source told the New York Post.
“ABC wants Josh to stay. He is a very talented broadcaster, but $8 million is too much. He isn’t bigger than GMA,” the source said.
Elliott is also in talks with NBC for a role that would have him covering both news and sports, an attractive option for the reporter who started at Sports Illustrated and ESPN.
