After joining the ABC morning show in 2012, Amy Robach took over the post-Good Morning America timeslot as host after the Pandemic: What You Need to Know series was turned into GMA3: What You Need to Know.
T.J. Holmes, who was recruited by ABC News in 2014 and became fast friends with Robach, was then named her co-host.
“You couldn’t have picked a better person to ask me what I thought of,” Robach explained to People, “because we’ve been trying to figure out a way to work together for literally the last five years.”
Going on to describe Holmes “like my brother,” Holmes said, “We just can finish each other’s sentences. We get along so well. It’s so wonderful to have, again, it’s that trust, and you don’t always have that on the set. But I know no matter what I do or say, he’s got my back and vice versa, and that’s everything.”
Robach also shared that she and her husband, Andrew Shue, often went on double dates with Holmes and his wife, Marilee Fiebig.
