Dan Harris named GMA Weekend co-anchor

“Good Morning America Weekend” has its new anchor team in place. Today Dan Harris was named co-anchor alongside Bianna Goldodryga. Harris has been filling in for several weekends and the announcement comes as Golodryga returns from her honeymoon. She was married Sept. 26 to former White House OMB director Peter Orszag.

Harris will continue to co-anchor “World News Sunday” until a replacement is named. But we hear Sharyn Alfonsi is on the short, short list.

TVNewser has also learned that with the recent departure of weather anchor Marysol Castro, the show will use a rotating cast of weather personalities from ABC affiliates.

On GMA, Harris takes over for Bill Weir who moved to Nightline in August.

TVNewser has the internal email sent out by ABC News president David Westin. Also, how did Harris do in the poll we asked in August?

Before you think ABC News Got its Peter Orszag News from his Fiancee/Anchor…

orszag_golodryga_6_22.jpgLast night, as the story of the impending resignation of White House OMB director Peter Orszag was making its way onto the internets, ABCNews.com had this headline, which, when it was posted at 8:06pmET, did not link to any story:

White House Budget Director Peter Orszag Will Step Down in the Coming Weeks, Sources Tell ABC News

This had some wondering if the ABC News source was Bianna Golodryga who is engaged to Orszag. Golodryga, who was named co-anchor of Good Morning America weekend last month and also covers business for ABC News, and Orszag will be married in September.

But TVNewser has learned it was White House correspondent Jake Tapper‘s reporting that led to the ABCNews.com headline. The story was first reported by Bloomberg News just after 7pmET. Tapper’s reporting, however, had a more specific time frame of Orszag’s departure being “the next few weeks.”

Currently, ABCNews.com is linking to an AP story on Orszag’s future.
