championaug21.jpg“ABC has made an offer to WABC’s Sam Champion to do weather on Good Morning America,” sources tell FTVLive. “We expect that ABC will make the Champion announcement very soon. Sources say they have to cross the ‘T’s’ and dot the ‘i’s’ on the contract before the official word will come down.”

> Also: Tonight, a tipster told TVNewser: “WABC is quietly telling key employees that veteran weatherman Sam Champion is leaving the station to take the vacant job at GMA. The deal is as good as done. Expect an announcement any day.”

> Update: “Sam came back from vacation this afternoon, and the deal was finalized,” this TVNewsTalk.net poster says. “ABC made Sam an offer to join Good Morning America and he couldn’t pass it up. This is Sam’s dream — national exposure.”
