Many GMA fans welcomed Eva in Amy’s place.
However, some did not.
One fan complained: “I like Eva Pilgrim. She is a very good journalist. But so is Amy Robach and she should still be sitting in her seat at GMA3…”
In January, Amy was fired from ABC along with her co-host of the morning show, TJ Holmes, 45.
At the time, multiple sources exclusively told The US Sun that an official announcement from the network was “imminent” despite ongoing talks with ABC.
Hours later, a source told the US Sun that the move was official: “Amy and TJ are out at the station. They reached an agreement a few minutes ago.”
The network spokesman then released a statement confirming they had parted ways with the stars.
“After several productive discussions with Amy Robach and TJ Holmes about options, we all agreed that leaving ABC News is best for everyone,” they said.
“We recognize their talent and dedication over the years and are grateful for their contributions.”
Amy and TJ have reportedly been involved in an affair since at least last summer, and news of the scandal first broke in November.
The GMA3 presenters have been off the air since their affair became public and deciding whether or not to return proved to be a long and grueling process.
Both TJ and Amy receive payouts according to their contracts. TMZ reported.
In November, the TV stars were caught PDA dating and by then they had reportedly been dating for six months.
Both TJ and Amy were married to other people at the time.
In pictures obtained from Daily mailAmy and TJ seemed familiar over drinks at a bar in New York City on November 10th.
They were also caught apparently spending time together at each other’s Manhattan apartments.
A source told the outlet at the time: “They were totally in love with each other. She giggled at everything he said and they looked at each other’s phones.”
“At one point she was dancing in her chair to the music and laughing so hard she practically fell on his lap.”
After exiting the bar, Amy and TJ were reportedly standing about 20 feet apart on the sidewalk when he called an Uber.
The couple then reportedly went to TJ’s downtown apartment.
The next day, the publication claimed TJ spent the morning filming before having lunch at a restaurant near Amy’s apartment.
The couple, who began hosting GMA3 in 2020, reportedly traveled to a cottage in upstate New York for a weekend getaway on Nov. 11, two weeks before Thanksgiving.
They reportedly drove two hours north of town to the Shawangunk Mountains, where they stayed in a charming stone cottage near Minnewaska State Park.
In shocking photos, TJ was seen lovingly patting Amy’s bum as she leaned into the trunk of her car to retrieve her duffel bags.
They didn’t spend Thanksgiving together, but reunited after the holiday on November 23 when they were spotted visiting each other’s Manhattan apartments.
Another insider told the Daily Mail: “Everyone knows that Amy and TJ have been close friends for a long time, running together and even hanging out as a foursome with each other’s spouses.”
