Who Will Co-Anchor ‘GMA’ Weekend?

With Kate Snow departing ABC, as we first reported earlier today, for NBC’s “Dateline,” the natural question arises: who will take over the “Good Morning America” weekend edition slot co-anchoring with Bill Weir?

Juju Chang and Bianna Golodryga both taped auditions for newsreader when the weekday edition added George Stephanopoulos as co-anchor late last year. Chang got the job, leaving Golodryga as the front-runner for the weekend show. But don’t rule out Chang for the job either.

Other internal candidates could be correspondent Deborah Roberts and GMA consumer reporter Elisabeth Leamy.

Chang and Elizabeth Vargas will co-anchor with Weir this Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
