Lara Spencer has been promoted to co-host status on Good Morning America, ABC has announced.
Lifestyle anchor since returning to the show in 2011, Lara Spencer now has billing parity with Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos.
Lara Spencer was GMA‘s national correspondent from 1999 to 2004. Then, for seven years, she was a host of The Insider.
Her promotion comes as GMA continues to beat NBC’s Today show in the ratings, but after it recently lost two members of its team, Sam Champion and Josh Elliott.
The other current members of the GMA family are Ginger Zee and Amy Robach.
Also this week, Good Morning America welcomed Michael Strahan, a co-host of the daily Live with Kelly and Michael, as a contributor.
