ABC News Denies Lara Spencer Being Phased Out of Gma: 'It's Ridiculous'

29 June 2016 2:10 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Longtime Good Morning America co-host Lara Spencer isn't going anywhere. ABC shut down rumors that the veteran morning show correspondent might be edged out of her job. "Any suggestion that Lara is being phased out is ridiculous," a spokesperson for ABC tells People."We are lucky to have her as a part of the Gma team, and she is integral to the success of the show." While reports suggested the upcoming full-time arrival of Michael Strahan might signal an impending shakeup, no big changes are planned. "The whole team at Gma both on the air and behind the scenes are »

21 April 2016 7:06 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Michael Strahan's Good Morning America colleagues George Stephanopoulos, Robin Roberts, Lara Spencer and Amy Robach got to congratulate him in person on Thursday when Strahan stopped by the ABC morning show for an appearance during the 8 a.m. hour. He made no mention of the controversy that has erupted since news broke that he would be leaving Live with Kelly and Michael for a full-time role on Gma, with Kelly Ripa taking a few days off from Live and rumored to be extremely upset with the situation.  Instead, like he did on Live on Wednesday, he offered shout-outs

ABC’s Morning Madness: Will Michael Strahan Blitz Score Touchdowns For ‘Gma,’ ‘Live’?

20 April 2016 12:11 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With “Good Morning America’s” ratings leadership in extreme danger of being tackled by NBC’s “Today,”  executives at ABC have come up with something that looks great on paper – adding more of Michael Strahan, the former football player who has transformed himself into one of the most winning personalities on today’s TV screen.

Now, what happens if someone drops the ball?

It’s not Strahan’s game to lose, but ABC’s. To goose their morning bauble, which snared more than $405.5 million in advertising last year, according to ad-spending tracker Kantar, executives at ABC News are stirring more celebrity into the mix at a time when the A.M. shows burnishing their news credentials (hello, “CBS This Morning”) are rising in the ratings, or at least getting more of the morning audience advertisers want (“Today”). In the process, the company is risking another franchise, the syndicated stalwart “Live, »

Michael Strahan 'Wanted to Do the Right Thing' by Breaking Good Morning America News to Kelly Ripa Himself and Is 'Hurt' by Her Reaction

20 April 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Michael Strahan may have shocked Kelly Ripa with his decision to leave Live! for Good Morning America, but when it came down to breaking the news to his co-host of four years, there was no question Strahan wanted to do it himself. "He very much wanted to do the right thing," a source tells People. "It was important to him. He wanted to tell her in person and give her months notice." Since 2014, Strahan has appeared on Gma twice a week while simultaneously co-hosting Live! With Kelly and Michael, but starting in September he'll become a full time co-anchor alongside Robin Roberts, »

Michael Strahan Quits ‘Live’ To Join ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’

19 April 2016 8:07 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC is counting on former football player Michael Strahan to help it gain new ground in TV’s ever-intensifying morning-news wars.

Strahan, who has become a near-ubiquitous TV presence with his stints as a commentator for Fox Sports’ football coverage, the host of a new kid-award franchise on Nickelodeon, and, in recent years, an energizing force on the Disney-syndicated morning program “Live! With Kelly and Michael,” will join ABC’s “Good Morning America” on a full-time basis starting in September, ABC said Tuesday morning. He will retain his duties as a football analyst for Fox.

“Michael has been a stellar addition to the broadcast.  Over the past two years on ‘Gma,’ he’s proven to be a tireless and versatile broadcaster with an incredible ability to connect with people, from veterans to American pop culture icons and newsmakers,” said James Goldston, president of ABC News, in a memo to staff sent this morning. »

‘Scandal’ Will Feature a Donald Trump-Inspired Character

15 March 2016 9:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This week’s episode of “Scandal” will feature a character inspired by Donald Trump.

On Tuesday night, the “Scandal” team teased the upcoming life-imitating-art storyline, plus discussed Hillary Clinton’s recent visit to the ABC series’ set.

“There might be parallels coming,” Bellamy Young, who plays former First Lady Mellie Grant, said with a laugh on the show’s panel at PaleyFest at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, Calif.

“You think the debates you’ve seen in the real world are fun!” star Kerry Washington teased, adding that the episode following this week’s has even more Trump goodness.

The episode that will air this Thursday was screened tonight at PaleyFest in front of a large audience, including this Variety reporter, who was asked not to reveal the actor portraying the larger-than-life presidential hopeful — but it is a character who has been seen on the show before.

How Leonardo DiCaprio Channeled Gatsby at Vanity Fair’s Oscars Party

29 February 2016 1:28 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Because everybody is a VIP at the annual Vanity Fair Oscars party, there’s no roped off section. But that didn’t stop Leonardo DiCaprio — channeling his alter ego in “The Great Gatsby” — from keeping his distance. DiCaprio arrived shortly after 11 p.m., with his best actor Oscar statuette from “The Revenant” in hand, and he quickly set up shop in a booth at the front, with his friends (and bodyguards) acting as a shield. Chris Rock swung by to rub DiCaprio’s shoulder, as they whispered compliments to each other (on hosting/winning). Tobey Maguire lounged on an adjacent sofa. The rest of the well-wishers included Patricia Clarkson, Anthony Mackie and Juliette Lewis.

If you couldn’t get to the star, there was the next best thing. A few brave souls managed to actually touch Leo’s Oscar, which sat on a cocktail table. Then Caitlyn Jenner — in a »

Chris Evans has officially redeemed himself in the eyes of his older sister. Evans brought sister Carly Evans, 37, along as his date for the Academy Awards on Sunday in Los Angeles. The Boston natives, who both wore black, smiled and waved to their mother watching at home before Carly gave a shout out to her kids while chatting with ABC's Lara Spencer. Chris, 34, may be a movie star but back in the day he was just a little pest, according to Carly. "He was a little brother so he did all the little brother things, he was annoying," Carly said »

After Months of Rebuilding, NBC’s ‘Today’ Has New Hope For Tomorrow (Exclusive)

13 January 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie and Al Roker recently found themselves in a situation that might seem unusual: sharing cocktails and banter with a group of their fiercest competitors.

Worlds that normally stay very separate last week collided. The “Today” trio mingled in the same room with “Good Morning America” anchors Robin Roberts and Lara Spencer, all part of a small gathering in Manhattan held to celebrate a new book on managing work and family written by Roker and his spouse, ABC News correspondent Deborah Roberts. James Goldston, the president of ABC News, and Deborah Turness, the president of NBC News, flanked Roker and Roberts and made happy toasts. Even Norah O’Donnell, one of the co-hosts of “CBS This Morning,” arrived on the scene. If executives from Apple and Microsoft were ever to put aside the business of outmaneuvering each other and decide instead to hang out, the setting might look very similar. »
