When you get an email with the subject line ***MANDATORY STAFF MTG.***- 11/23 @ 2PM EST! ***, you might have reason to worry. When you work for “Good Morning America,” it takes on greater significance as the show is about to A) get a new co-anchor and B) get a new manager.
So after that first email went out this afternoon, with this at the end…
*** Please note, this is a mandatory mtg. and your attendance is required! ***
…GMA staffers wondered what this was all about. So EP Tom Cibrowski sent the follow-up email below, which was obtained by TVNewser.

Wow, this sounds intriguing! – Because inquiring minds all want to know, this is for all of us to get together as we ALWAYS do at the end of Sweeps for some pizza and soft drinks, as we get ready to end one year and start another…there will be time to just chat, ask questions and have some laughs. There will be ice cream too.
