Will Three Gays Head Up Good Morning America?

sam_champion_gma1

With Diane Sawyer making her decade-long exit from Good Morning America, all of New York media wants to know: Who will take her place? Depending on who ABC picks, the network’s morning show could become the gayest place on television.

By comparison, NBC’s Today and CBS’s The Early Show are pretty straight chat fests. (Okay, we’ve heard the gay rumors about Early‘s weatherman Dave Price, too. He’s single and lives in NYC with his dog. Uh huh.) But on GMA, you’ve already got Robin Roberts and Sam Champion, both of whom are out among colleagues, but not viewing audiences (at least, they don’t make it anyone’s business).

That leaves Diane Sawyer and Chris Cuomo as the resident heteros, making GMA a refreshing half-gay. But what if ABC filled Diane’s spot with another family member?

Already, financial lez Suze Orman has raised her hand to ABC brass letting them know she wants the job. But “insiders” says ABC wants a dude to replace Diane (who’s leaving to take Charlie Gibson’s evening anchor chair) and sit next to Robin, “restoring” the male-female duo main hosting construct. “A short list of candidates,” says the Los Angeles Times‘ Matea Gold, “is widely believed to include This Week anchor George Stephanopoulos, World News Saturday anchor David Muir, GMA Weekend co-host Bill Weir and GMA news anchor Chris Cuomo.” (NB: Moving Cuomo to a main slot would still leave open the junior “news anchor” slot.)

Funny, then, that Weir already has the gays speculating And so does Muir.

Not that adding another ‘mo would really change GMA‘s formula of news, entertainment, and crossing and uncrossing legs. But it’d be nice to wake up every morning and see Chris Cuomo quivering among the Gs.

      I just have to say Charles Gibson’s personality sucked. How his career lasted as long as it did is still a shock to me.

      Suze would be a great addition.

      Several of those guys are hot, including Muir. I had no idea (if it’s true)that Robin is a lesbian or Sam was gay (again, if true). Chris Cuomo so hot WHY ISN’T HE GAY!!! Sorry but Sam does nothing for me.

      Suburban, I can confirm that Sam Champion is gay. I’ve seen him several times on Fire Island and on occasion while there, holding hands with another male. I don’t think you’d find any straight men doing that.

      True and true, Robert.

      From what I heard out of NYC, is that he really isn’t all into the Fire Island scene anymore.

      He and his boyfriend Sean run in the Hampton scene more frequently now.

      Here’s a picture of Sean: http://www.nypost.com/pagesixmag/issues/20080914/images/Buzz/sixcity/7.jpg

      @Surburan: You really need to have you gaydar sent into the shop because Sam Champion is a big ol’ gurl, how could you miss that? Oh an Robin Roberts just oozes lesbian. Straight women usually have this twinkle in their eyes that says “damn I sure use a big cock right now”. Diane has it, hell even Sam has it (see the way he looks at Chris) but Robin Roberts? Nothing. She’s strictly pescatarian

      @RHYDDERCH, I don’t have gaydar. Sam does nothing for me but neither does Clay Aiken! I would never think Robin is lesbian or Sam gay, I’ve heard no rumors or nothing on the internet until now. I didn’t believe Rosie or Richard Camberlain were either. Plus I’ve never been to the Hamptons. btw, I’d do more than look at Chris, Jesus is he hot, and married.

      What happened to finally convince you she was, did she dive into a muff right in front of you?

      @Marcus, I never thought about it either way back then. Some celebs openly discuss spouses and some don’t. Back then she probably worried about ratings or the network told her to keep it hush hush. Everything is so out there nowadays.

      Paul, just because he’s not attractive doesn’t mean people won’t wonder or at least inquire that he’s (in low voice) gay.

      And Suburban, yes, everything is so out there today. And it’s only going to get better. I love it. ;)

      Just watched Muir on the news tonite, reporting from the Gulf. He had the open front on his shirt, which he typically does when not reporting behind the desk. But you had to be absolutely blind not to see those biceps bulging!!!! …which would fit the pecs that showed under the shirt when he faced the cam. Now really…. do any of the reputedly straight newscasters have such ‘credentials’? Muir’s arms, and what can be seen of his chest, suggests that he is a smoothie. But LORD — what an eyefull !!! and he has always struck me as being gay. Nice to read the above comments….

      Bill Weir is married and has a daughter. David Muir has dated this pretty PR girl for Armani in the past and Ive seen them together in some events so Im pretty sure he is straight. Sam Champion is gay and I think he is pretty open about it.

      David Muir is gay. When he worked @ WTVH 5 Syracuse he had least one affair with a gay man in the television field. His favorite thing to do is to cuddle in bed and watch ‘I Love Lucy’(an encounter explained to me by a close friend).

      I used to work at ABC, but they let go of nearly 60 percent of the company. I was one of many let go during the news slaughter, so I could care less about protecting their anonymity. Here are the insider facts : Bill Weir is straight married with kids and nice guy. Diane Sawyer is married (beard) but in a secret lesbian relationship but a great person to work with. Elizabeth Vargas married and a nightmare to work with. Jake Tapper straight and a sweet man. Chris Cuomo straight married and also a sweet guy. George Stephanopolus is closeted gay but got married for his family and to keep gay rumors at bay. Nice guy though. David Muir is 100 percent gay obsessed with his namebrand clothes and worked his way up from desk assistant. He also is too concerned about his crooked face on camera and wears a ton of makeup. Not a fan. Sam Champion. Hello. Gay. Robin Roberts gay and a total sweetheart. Miguel Marquez is out and gay and a sweet guy. Dan Harris is questionable although he says everyone thInks he is gay. Don’t know about this one. I prefer to read my news now that they have let so many good people go. And almost all studios and networks are using robotic cameras now so fewer and fewer people in the studio. Let’s talk about creating jobs National media!! Shame on you !!!

      @ MS I believe you. Along with the degradation of society and the American culture, I see more and more of the homosexual agenda prevailing. I don’t know why these homos remain “in the closet” if they are so adamant about their sexuality. You won’t lose your job since that is the trend nowadays.

      God’s judgment is gonna rain down! and I ain’t gonna be a part of it!

      I don’t understand- is this a site to speak negatively and call people homosexual who may or may not be- I just dont get it. If you people are gay – one would think you people would be more inclined to respect the privacy of others – not speculate and try to OUT THEM; just absurd- the way you people do each other. I think outing someone should be a criminal offense- even the suggestion….
