Network moles said ABC brass recognize Ryan’s star power and have already penciled him in to replace scandal-scarred Amy and T.J. — who made headlines with their adulterous affair — and reinvent GMA3 in a way to showcase his talents.
“Network bosses are looking at completely retooling GMA3 with a live audience, music and celebrity guests in an effort to play to Ryan’s strengths and wash away the stain of the scandal,” noted the insider.
Robach and Holmes said goodbye to their co-anchor gigs earlier this year. The pair reportedly began dating in August 2022 and were pulled off the air in December during a network investigation into their relationship.
"After several productive conversations with Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes about different options, we all agreed it's best for everyone that they move on from ABC News," a company spokesperson said in a statement after they discussed how to proceed. "We recognize their talent and commitment over the years and are thankful for their contributions."
