The news desk at Good Morning America is going to look a little different. Lara Spencer is stepping away from her role as co-anchor, People reports.
“Lara loves working at GMA and she will continue to join the GMA desk on select mornings each week and contribute to special assignment reporting so she can continue building her lifestyle brand and work on all the TV shows for her production company,” a source tells People.
Spencer has been working behind the scenes on her lifestyle brand and production company, DuffKat Media. And her new schedule will allow for more time on shows they work on like HGTV’s Flea Market Flip and a few other projects in the works. Reps for Spencer didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment from GoodHousekeeping.com
“She knows she can’t balance GMA, all her upcoming television shows and DuffKat while also finding time for her family,” the People source said about her production company, named for Spencer’s teenagers Duff and Kate. Spencer is also currently planning a wedding to her boyfriend of two years, Rick McVey.
“I love being part of the GMA family so much, but making and creating content has been a passion of mine for a really long time,” Spencer told TheWrap earlier this year.
Spencer’s new schedule isn’t the only shift happening at GMA. Page Six reports Amy Robach will also be dialing back her appearances to focus on her new role hosting 20/20, which is predicted to be announced later this week.
The show will keep fan favorites Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, and Michael Strahan at the anchor desk, according to the reports.
