Good Morning America: George Stephanopoulos Signs Long Term Deal

“Good Morning Americaanchor George Stephanopoulos has signed a new long term deal with ABC. He will also continue hosting the Sunday Beltway show known as “This Week” under this new deal

“We are thrilled that the team is locked in and that the [Stephanopoulos] deal was done so quickly,” an ABC News spokeswoman said.

It is a source of extreme pride for the GMA team to have this man as a virtually permanent member of their group. Especially after the departure of Sam Champion and Josh Elliot for NBC, the fact that George remains behind as an asset for the corporation is a miracle alright. That George will remain a regular part of the features on GMA for eons is a source of extreme pride for the producers of the show.

"We expect him to remain with us for many, many years," said spokeswoman. "This represents what he wanted — he is committed to 'GMA' and 'This Week,' and understands the power of those platforms. We are thrilled that the team is locked in and that the deal was done so quickly and with such goodwill from all sides."

George will be handling over half the assignments on “This Week”. The other half will be handed over to Martha Radditz. GMA is way ahead of the “Today” show on NBC. Nearly 800,000 more people watched GMA as compared to the latter. 

As for the rankings, “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos leading it ranked at #1 among the rest of the talk shows. It has a reputation which it jealously guards. And the man who is at the helm has personality and vision. He is no ordinary run-of-the-mill anchor. 

If he was mediocre, why would he be heading such a large enterprise? George, with his infectious smile and exuberant spirit, is simply a un-put-down-able person. You can’t beat him when it comes to winning over public opinion. His style of talking and engagement with the audience is impeccable and that is the biggest reason why he is a fundamental part of the GMA platform in the first place. 

These news anchors and talk show hosts keep changing as is the norm. But a person like George Stephanopoulos will last for a long time in the media Hall of Fame. He has what it takes. And he of all people knows that he has the talent to accomplish what others cannot.   

"George is vital to the success of the news division and will continue to be a leader here at ABC News. We are united as a team and over the past few months we have not missed a beat — in fact our audience has only grown," added ABC News spokeswoman.
