“GMA 3: What You Need to Know” co-anchors Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes have reportedly been involved in a romantic relationship and have separated from their respective spouses, according to multiple reports.
Holmes joined Robach, who was tapped to anchor an hour of COVID-19-focused news coverage early in the pandemic, on the show in September 2020. Both also contribute to the main “Good Morning America” program that airs earlier in the day.
Robach is married to “Melrose Place” actor Andrew Shue, and several outlets are reporting that the couple sold their New York City apartment just days ago.
The couple married in 2010 and have two children.
Holmes is married to Marilee Fiebig, his second marriage. The couple has a blended family, with two children from Holmes’ previous marriage, as well as one child together.
The Daily Mail published photos of the two in public as evidence of a relationship.
Both Robach and Holmes have reportedly separated from their spouses and there is no indication the relationship is non-consensual.
It’s not immediately clear if the pair disclosed the relationship to their superiors at ABC or even if such a disclosure would have been required.
Back in 2019, a video of Robach venting about how ABC allegedly squashed an interview she landed with one of the women who accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct. The recording appeared to have been taken from comments Robach made during a break and was not meant to be made public. ABC reportedly launched an investigation into the recording’s leak.
While workplace relationships are not uncommon in any industry, they often sprout up behind the scenes of TV news.
This could be attributed to the employees having to work early in the morning or late into the night, limiting their social lives outside of work. It’s also common for both on-air talent and behind-the-scenes workers to travel together for coverage, often spending downtime off-camera with each other.
These relationships can often become messy — with two separate networks facing high-profile sexual misconduct scandals in recent years (there has been no evidence of any misconduct between Holmes and Robach).
At NBC, “Today” anchor Matt Lauer was fired from the network after multiple complaints made with the network. Lauer denied any wrongdoing and that all of his actions were consensual, though it’s likely they would have violated company policy on workplace relationships.
