Josh Elliott in Talks to Return to ‘Good Morning America’ (Exclusive)

1 hour ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Nearly 18 months after leaving ABC News for NBC Sports, Josh Elliott is in talks to return to his old job as the news reader on “Good Morning America,” Variety has learned.

According to two people with knowledge of the situation, ABC executives are potentially open to a plan to buy Elliott out of his $4 million-a-year contract at NBC, and put him back on “Gma,” so he can help the morning show fend off “Today,” which has been gaining in the key ad demo.

If the deal is reached, it’s not clear how soon Elliott would return, but it could mean a reshuffling of talent on “Gma.” A source says executives at ABC News believe the current lineup of personalities — led by George Stephanopoulos and Robin Roberts, along with Amy Robach, Ginger Zee and Lara Spencer — isn’t as gender-balanced as it once was, which is why they are open to bringing Elliott back. »

Nicki Minaj Says She’d Be Down to Collaborate With Taylor Swift, Hmm

24 July 2015 10:42 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift have laid down their weapons, and now they will beat swords into ... microphones? That's the impression left by Minaj's appearance on Good Morning America's summer concert series this morning, where interviewer Lara Spencer was very insistent that the two musicians seal their newfound harmony by producing some actual harmonies together. After a little prompting, Minaj admitted, "I would love to work with her" — which immediately produced alarm bells in the heads of all right-thinking citizens. Could Minaj and Swift's entire feud simply have been an elaborate promotional scheme ... maybe even for a joint appearance at the very VMAs that sparked the whole "controversy" in the first place? Heck, they could have been tweeting at each other from the same room. You may laugh, but not two weeks ago, the basketball world found itself enthralled by a similar situation — none of which turned »

‘The View’ To Add Candace Cameron Bure and Paula Faris as Co-Hosts (Exclusive)

23 July 2015 2:19 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As “The View” heads toward its summer hiatus, ABC is in final negotiations to add Candace Cameron Bure and “Gma Weekend” anchor Paula Faris as co-hosts of the daytime talk show in the fall, Variety has learned. Both personalities have previously filled in on the show, and if the deals close, the women would complete the Hot Topics table for season 19, which will feature moderator Whoopi Goldberg, Raven Symone and comedian Michelle Collins.

A spokesperson for ABC declined to comment on staffing changes, as did talent reps.

According to a source, Faris’ deal would feature her on “The View” Monday through Thursday, and she would take Fridays off so she could juggle her second gig as the co-anchor of “Gma Weekend.” The network is hoping Faris can fill the show’s “journalist spot,” by offering the perspective of a news personality. But those familiar with Faris’ thinking note she wants to continue her news career, »
