GOOD Morning America’s Amy Robach and TJ Holmes will not be returning to the GMA3 show and are working out an “exit strategy,” sources have said.
One network source exclusively told The US Sun that Amy and TJ are unofficially out at GMA3, and seven weeks after being taken off the air, their newly-appointed legal teams are hammering out a plan with ABC’s attorneys and top executives to make a big announcement. .
As The US Sun previously reported, the co-hosts’ alleged affair rocked the news program in late November.
The source claimed: “ABC’s legal team takes a really long time because it’s a really small, but absolutely trusted team of attorneys.
“They are definitely dotting their I’s and crossing their T’s for Amy and TJ’s exit strategy.”
While the network insider doesn’t know the specifics about what the coupled-up co-hosts future may or may not be at the network, “it’s clear they are not coming back to GMA3.”
An insider close to Amy and TJ added that while nothing has been made official yet: “They are unlikely to return to the network at all.”
The network insider added: “ABC is going to pay a lot of money to make everyone happy and go away very, very quietly.
“There will be iron-clad NDAs signed and everything in their exit contracts will make sure there are no nuclear explosions in the aftermath.
“This whole situation was handled very poorly, and ABC’s legal team has their work cut out for them to make sure everything is just right.

“[Disney’s CEO] Bob Iger will absolutely have eyes on the final packages.”
Meanwhile, a source with knowledge of the negotiations added that Amy & TJ’s attorneys are currently in close contact with the network’s legal team.
“They are all working through strategies to make the hosts comfortable enough so that the network can move on from this as quietly as possible.”
As The US Sun previously revealed, Amy and TJ believe they are getting sacked at the network.
The GMA3 co-hosts brought on two high-powered attorneys last week as they deal with the network.
On the heels of the co-hosts hiring the lawyers, a close source said: “It certainly sounds like they are out.”
A second source said that despite a report that the pair have already been fired, the network has not yet made any official decision as of yet.
“The couple believes there is no scandal, these are two consenting adults and had they been put back on air over the holidays, this would all be behind them by now, and nobody would care.”
In a call to staffers in early December, ABC News President Kim Godwin said in a call: “After a lot of thought, I am taking Amy and TJ off the air as we figure this out.”
The ABC exec went on to say TJ and Amy’s relationship was “not a violation of company policy,” and that the decision to take them out of their anchor chairs was necessary for the “GMA brand as a whole.”
Amy hired powerhouse attorney Andrew Brettler, while TJ hired Eric George.
TMZ was the first to report the news of the co-hosts’ legal teams.
The anchors were seen on PDA-filled dates together back in November 2022, but both were still married to other people.
READY FOR REPLACEMENTS
The GMA3 stars’ outing followed fans begging the network to permanently hire the suspended hosts’ replacements, Rhiannon Ally and DeMarco Morgan.
The pair were taken off GMA3 in December after their off-screen relationship was exposed, and they remained suspended while the network conducted an investigation.
Rhiannon and Ally have been filling in for the couple in recent weeks and seem to be a huge hit with viewers.
TJ and Amy, sent shockwaves through the TV world when their relationship was exposed in late November 2022.
The couple, who began anchoring GMA3 in 2020, allegedly began their affair over the summer, with both claiming they were already separated at the time.
They were taken off GMA3 after the public caught wind of their relationship.
A number of hosts have been filling in for them during their time off, including Janai Norman and Gio Benitez.
Since their relationship was made public, Amy and TJ have not kept it hidden.
They were caught kissing and cuddling during a steamy getaway to Miami days after Christmas.
The couple also smiled and looked cozy during a grocery run days later.
TJ filed for divorce from his wife, Marilee Fiebig, late last month in New York after 12 years of marriage.
They have a 10-year-old daughter, Sabine, together.
Sources have previously told The US Sun that Amy is working on her divorce from her husband, Andrew Shue, however, neither has filed paperwork as of yet.
