ABC News welcomes new 'GMA3' hosts DeMarco Morgan and Eva Pilgrim after Amy Robach and TJ Holmes axing
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: An affair scandal changed the trajectory of ‘GMA3’ when hosts Amy Robach and TJ Holmes were removed from their positions. Following the scandal, several anchors stepped in until ‘GMA3’ found their permanent hosts who would be replacing Robach and Holmes. This news has been much anticipated by the viewers of ‘GMA3’ whose curiosity has been toyed with over the last few months.
After almost six months, ABC News has finally announced their newest anchors and replacements of the former hosts. DeMarco Morgan and Eva Pilgrim will permanently be stepping in to co-anchor the third hour of ‘Good Morning America'.

DeMarco Morgan and Eva Pilgrim finally step in
Over the last few months, different anchors have come and gone since the firing of Robach and Holmes, and it was high time the network found themselves permanent co-anchors. Morgan and Pilgrim will be joining Dr Jennifer Ashton, who has been with the network and show for almost 3 years now, and will continue being one of the hosts. Although Morgan and Pilgrim took a minute to find their spots as permanent co-anchors of ‘GMA3', they have been with the network before, so this isn’t new and unknown territory for the latest duo.
Kim Godwin, the ABC News President shared the news in a memo to staff that said, "I am incredibly proud of the reporting Eva, DeMarco, and Gio have brought to ABC News. They join their colleagues Whit, Janai, and Dr. Jen whose steadfast commitment to bold, straightforward journalism has been integral to their respective programs’ success," as per Complex.
Who will take over for Eva Pilgrim?
Eva Pilgrim isn’t new to the ABC Network and has been around since 2015 and has been a part of ‘Good Morning America’ since 2018. Luckily, viewers won’t have to get used to completely new faces for ‘GMA3!’ While Pilgrim takes on a new role, her previous role will be taken over by Gio Benitez, who was previously ‘Good Morning America’s transportation correspondent. There have been a few changes made since the alleged affair of Robach and Holmes, but by the looks of it, these changes were imperative following the absence of permanent hosts of ‘GMA3’ for almost six months now.
