Sam Champion Returning to GMA

Sam Champion is (briefly) returning to Good Morning America.

The meteorologist — who famously left GMA in 2013 to spearhead AMHQ, his own morning show on The Weather Channel — will fill in for Ginger Zee while she remains on maternity leave for the week of Jan. 11, it was announced Monday.

Champion’s return comes just three months after his exit from AMHQ, which serves as a direct competitor to GMA. Since then, the former ABC weather anchor has led The Weather Channel’s expanded focus on primetime coverage.

Have you missed the former GMA weatherman? Excited for his return? Sound off below.
