Amy Robach and TJ Holmes were both FIRED from Good Morning America yesterday, and the network offered good reasons why the two will be let go, Media Take Out has learned.
According to TMZ, Amy was let go for alleged alcohol consumption on the job. The network all but called her a “drunk” in a new report.
The new report claimed that the mediation was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct.”
According to the network, Amy had liquor in her dressing room, which was a violation of policy. Amy’s team fought back those claims, alleging that some of the bottles were sent to her from top ABC News execs.
But there’s more. According to the network, Amy went to the College Football National Championship game a year ago, and came to work the next day drunk.
And TJ’s allegations – well we all know what those are. According to multiple reports, TJ had as many as five affairs with staffers at ABC News, some of them much younger and less senior than the on-air anchor.
There’s good news for Amy and TJ, however. Media Take Out learned that they will be paid out “a portion” of their remaining contract, to just go away quietly.
According to one TV insider who spoke to Media Take Out, TJ’s career as a tv news anchor is over … and Amy will have to “work hard” to get back on the air in the future.
