T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach are formally out at ABC, as we initially informed you, and now, the network has actually filled out its whole personnel on the choice to let them go.
In a company-wide e-mail sent out Friday and gotten by TMZ, ABC News President Kim Godwin informed staffers, “I want to share with you that we’ve reached a decision about T.J. and Amy.”
It then consists of the declaration the network sent out large minutes later on, “After several productive conversations with Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes about different options, we all agreed it’s best for everyone that they move on from ABC News. We recognize their talent and commitment over the years and are thankful for their contributions.”
Godwin notifies workers that a choice regarding who will co-anchor “GMA3” and “20/20” will come at a later date.
She concludes by stating, “I know that this has been a distraction for so many of us, but let’s not forget all the great work that continues to make ABC News the #1 news network in America, and that’s because of you. I want to thank you again for your patience and professionalism during this time.”
TMZ broke the story, T.J. and Amy concerned an exit arrangement after an “extremely contentious” mediation went through the night Thursday into Friday early morning. Both were provided settlement bundles.
We’re informed ABC officers made it clear — the couple did not manage their love the proper way — waiting too long to reveal it to higher-ups and that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” to some staffers.
ABC likewise implicated Robach of having alcohol in her dressing space — bottles we’re informed were talented by ABC honchos — and being intoxicated after going to the National College Football Championship video game.
One staffer informs us, “They got what they was worthy of. It didn’t assist that they had couple of pals in the structure to go to bat for either of them.”
